In their Urban Cowboy Show – Mickey Gilley & Johnny Lee together deliver a double whammy of country and pop hits. Few artists can claim the world-wide fame of singer, Mickey Gilley; he’s scored more than 15 chart toppers, including his sensational cover of the pop music standard, “Stand By Me,” a song that made Gilley a favorite cross-over artist after it appeared on the soundtrack from the movie, Urban Cowboy. With long-time and newfound fans alike delighted by his other #1 hits, including “Room Full of Roses,” “That’s All That Matters,” and “Don’t All the Girls Get Prettier at Closing Time.” The industry loves him, too; he’s been blessed with six Academy of Country Music awards, and he and his Urban Cowboy Band received a Grammy in 1980 for Best Country Instrumental Performance for “Orange Blossom Special/Hoedown.”
Long-time Gilley friend and musical collaborator, Johnny Lee, joins Mickey for the tour. Lee gave us five huge #1 hits, including; “Lookin’ for Love (in All the Wrong Places),” “One in A Million,” and “The Yellow Rose,” a song he recorded with Lane Brody. Johnny’s appeal reaches beyond the country charts, too; he nabbed an impressive #5 on the pop charts with “Lookin’ for Love.” He was named New Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music, and was introduced to a broader audience when he played himself in the same movie that skyrocketed Gilly’s career, Urban Cowboy.
