 Nashville, Tenn. (September 17, 2020) -- In honor of the 40th anniversary of the movie and soundtrack phenomenon, “Urban Cowboy,” country legends Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee will co-host an exclusive one-hour special on SiriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse. The special will feature tracks from the hit soundtrack as well as special guests; Anne Murray, Boz Scaggs and Brian Collins. Fans can tune in on SiriusXM radios (channel 59) and on the SiriusXM app.
"When they told me that John Travolta might do the film 'Urban Cowboy' it dawned on me that at that time he was just coming off of 'Saturday Night Fever,' and my first thought was this could be a country night fever," said Mickey Gilley. "It was a really great ride that just keeps on going."
Urban Cowboy gave way to a birth of honky tonk culture in America and reintroduced the American populace to a love of country music. USA Today’s Jim McKairnes recalls how “the music heard on screen in Gilley’s Club – a real and celebrated honky-tonk co-owned by country performer Mickey Gilley – was heard across the country as one club after another, in big cities and small, cashed in on a boot-scooting surge
