With 17 No. 1 hits and soundtrack credits for the 1980 hit film ‘Urban Cowboy’ starring John Travolta, some country boy balladeers might see fit to hang up the saddle — so to speak — but Mickey Gilley keeps on riding.

“I think probably the thing that I enjoy more than anything else is the camaraderie I have with the audience and the fact is … it’s not about the money, it’s about the music,” said Gilley. “It’s just been a great ride. I’ve had a great time in the music industry.”
