‘70s and ‘80s hitmaker Mickey Gilley fused honkytonk and countrypolitan to create a stellar career. Born into one of the most famous families in Southern music, singer/pianist Gilley followed in his cousin Jerry Lee Lewis’ footsteps with a sound that mimicked the rockabilly legend’s style. He soon remade himself as a country artist and in 1974 with the release of “Room Full of Roses,” Gilley landed his first hit. He went on to record 15 more number-one country singles, creating a distinctive sound along the way. In 1971, he partnered with Sherwood Cryer to open a honky tonk in Pasadena, Texas. Before long Gilley’s became legendary in Texas, even becoming the setting for the hit movie Urban Cowboy. Look for Gilley to perform hits like “I Overlooked an Orchid,” “Don't the Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time,” “Stand by Me,” “Lonely Nights” and “Fool for Your Love.” 

Paying his dues in Texas honky tonks, Johnny Lee honed a country style all his own. In 1980, he broke through with the crossover hit that would make him a star. “Lookin’ for Love” ended up on the Urban Cowboy soundtrack and went on to become a number-one hit on the country charts and a number-five hit on the pop charts. Lee carried on with a number of country hits and became a sought-after touring act. He also starred alongside Barbara Eden, Susan St. James, John Travolta and Debra Winger, and married Charlene Tilton from the TV show Dallas. Look for Lee to break out the hits, including “Bet Your Heart on Me,” “Sounds Like Love,” “Hey Bartender,” “You Could Have Heard a Heart Break,” “One in a Million,” “Pickin’ Up Strangers” and “Prisoner of Hope.”
