  • Mickey Gilley

    Saturday, May 6, 2017

    By 1980, Mickey Gilley decided to come up with a new sound, in order to bring him country crossover success so many other Country singers were having at the time. His career was given a second go-around when one of his recordings was featured on the box-office-selling movie Urban Cowboy. The song was the Country remake of the Soul standard “Stand by Me”. As the movie was becoming successful, so was “Stand by Me”. The song rose to the top of the Country charts in 1980, as well as hitting the Top 5 of the Adult Contemporary charts, as well as making the Pop Top 40. The song turned Gilley into a pop-country crossover success, yet, despite it being his only Adult Contemporary hit, it did become one of his signature songs. “Room Full of Roses”, “True Love Ways,” and “You Don’t Know Me” also hit the Billboard Hot 100.
