MickeyGilleyMickey Gilley broke out of the shadow of his cousin, Jerry Lee Lewis, in the early 1970s when he became a star in country music. In the late 70s, he joined the urban cowboy movement and became a superstar. Enjoy his timeless talent at a concert 8 p.m., Saturday, May 9, at Jennie T. Anderson Theatre.
Gilley's Club was the world's largest "honky-tonk" and was a launching pad for some of country music's biggest stars. He has 16 number one hits, including "Room Full of Roses," "I Overlooked an Orchid," "City Lights," "True Love Ways" and "Stand by Me." The movie "Urban Cowboy" was based on Gilley's Club and featured a cameo by Mickey, as well as several of his songs. This resulted in a string of six number one singles. In the early 1990s, he became one of the first country stars to open a permanent theater in Branson, Mo.
Ticekets are $40 and available at ticketmaster.com. Anderson Theatre is located in the Cobb Civic Center at 548 South Marietta Parkway, Marietta.
