Great News For Mickey Gilley Fans As He Once Again Tours
The original Urban Cowboy, Mickey Gilley, is hitting the road and will return to touring after recovering from 2009 tragic accident that left him paralyzed.
“I have always loved performing and I know nothing else,” says Mickey Gilley. “Getting back on stage in all of these cities is something to look forward to each and every day."
Gilley has ranked among the top country music hit makers. In 1976, he swept the ACM Awards, receiving Entertainer of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, Single of the Year and Album of the Year.
Aside from his many hits and being known as the cousin to Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart, Gilley was instrumental in creating the 'Urban Cowboy' era with the opening of Gilley’s in 1971, known as the World’s Largest Honky-Tonk.
In 2009, while helping his friend move, Gilley became paralyzed from the neck down after a sofa landed on top of him and crushed four vertebrae. After several years of intense physical therapy he has returned to the stage and is now walking, singing and performing.
