FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BREMEN, Ga. (March 8, 2016) – Mill Town Music Hall welcomes Mickey Gilley back for another performance on Saturday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. EST. His show is full of stories, music and tender moments. Gilley’s love and appreciation for music began at an early age when he first learned to play the piano. He produced chart-busting hit songs, and owned Gilley’s, the World’s Largest Honky-Tonk in the 70’s and 80’s, and theaters in Branson, MO. Mill Town Music Hall focuses on family-friendly music and events and is located conveniently off I-20 in Bremen (1031 Alabama Avenue).
Gilley was raised in Louisiana along with his famous musician cousins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart. In 1959, he charted his first song. His success continued when he and a business partner opened Gilley’s Night Club. By the time the 80’s rolled around, Gilley’s songs were hitting the charts regularly, his club was increasing in popularity and he had a television show. Esquire Magazine wrote a story about Gilley’s, which started the Urban Cowboy craze. Paramount Pictures decided to film their 1979 movie Urban Cowboy at his bar. The movie soundtrack featured Gilley’s song “Stand By Me,” which went platinum and turned Gilley into a household name. Gilley’s Urban Cowboy Band earned a Grammy Award for “Orange Blossom Special.” The Branson Area Chamber of Commerce presented him the Pioneer Award for hosting concerts in the area where admission was a bag of dog food.
