In all, Mickey Gilley has achieved a remarkable 39 Top-Ten country hits, with 17 of those songs reaching the No. 1 spot on the country charts. In 1976, he swept the ACM Awards, hauling home trophies for Entertainer of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, Single of the Year and Album of the Year.

The landmark Texas nightclub he helped create in 1971 is another example of Mickey’s success. Gilley’s Club was the sensation of the era: the “world’s largest honky-tonk.” It was a launching pad for some of country music’s biggest stars and the dominating force behind the “Urban Cowboy” craze that swept the country in the early ’80s, following the release of the John Travolta movie filmed in the Pasadena, Texas, nightclub.

Johnny Lee was asked to perform in the film, Urban Cowboy, which starred John Travolta and Deborah Winger, and for which he also recorded several songs used in the soundtrack. “Lookin’ For Love”, from that same soundtrack, became Lee’s first Gold Record. The song spent 3 weeks at the top of the Billboard Country Music Singles Charts at #1, and #2 on the Pop Music Singles Charts.

He followed up “Lookin’ For Love” with “One In A Million”, which spent two weeks at #1. More #1 Singles during this time included – “Bet Your Heart On Me,” “The Yellow Rose (a duet with Lane Brody),” and “You Could’ve Heard a Heart Break.” His string of Top 10 hits continued with “Pickin’ Up Strangers,” “Prisoner of Hope,” “Be There for Me Baby,” “Cherokee Fiddle,” “Sounds Like Love,” “Hey Bartender” and “Rollin’ Lonely.”

The 1.058-mile Loudon oval will host the Cup Series for just a single weekend this year as the annual fall date has been moved to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Sunday will be the 47th time the Cup Series will compete at “The Magic Mile” since making its debut there in July 1993. Martin Truex, Jr. goes into the weekend after scoring win No. 4 of the season last week in his dominating performance to win the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. But the defending series champion has never won at New Hampshire, something he hopes to rectify Sunday afternoon in the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. “I would have to call New Hampshire my first home track because I’ve been going there for a long time – back as a kid watching my father (Martin Truex Sr.) race,” Truex said. “Winning at New Hampshire would be the biggest one of them all. It’s no Daytona 500, but..
