Urban Cowboy Christmas Reunion: Mickey Gilley & Johnny Lee
Mickey Gilley, the 1976 Country Music Entertainer of the Year, and Gold Record recording artist Johnny Lee will perform their world-famous Urban Cowboy Reunion Tour along with songs from each of their Christmas albums Christmas at Gilley’s and Santa Claus is Lookin’ For Love.

Mickey Gilley helped create “Gilley’s,” the landmark Texas nightclub in 1971. Gilley’s Club was the sensation of the era: the “world’s largest honky-tonk.” It was a launching pad for some of country music’s biggest stars and the dominating force behind the “Urban Cowboy” craze that swept the country in the early 1980s.

Gilley scored his first string of consecutive number-one hits in the 70s with “Roomful of Roses,” “I Overlooked an Orchid,” “City Lights,” “Window Up Above,” “Don’t the Girls All Get Prettier At Closing Time” and “Bring It On Home To Me.”  In all, Mickey has achieved a remarkable 39 Top-Ten country hits, with 17 of those songs reaching the #1 spot on the country charts. In 1976, he swept the ACM Awards, hauling home trophies for Entertainer of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, Single of the Year and Album of the Year.

Johnny Lee performed in the film, Urban Cowboy, and recorded several songs used in the soundtrack. “Lookin’ for Love,” from the soundtrack, became Lee’s first Gold Record. The song spent three weeks at the top of the Billboard Country Music Singles Charts as #1, and #2 on the Pop Music Singles Charts.

Lee followed up “Lookin’ for Love” with “One in a Million,” which spent two weeks at #1. More #1 singles during this time included “Bet Your Heart on Me,” “The Yellow Rose,” and “You Could’ve Heard a Heart Break.”
