Mickey Gilley, who helped launch the Urban Cowboy movement in country music and had hit songs including “Stand By Me,” “Room Full of Roses” and “Lonely Nights,” died Saturday in Branson, Missouri.
Gilley, 86, had just played 10 shows in April, and passed away peacefully surrounded by friends and family, according to a statement.
Gilley, a singer and actor, influenced generations of country singers with his signature, haunting combination of Louisiana rhythm and blues and country-pop crossover melodies.
He grew up with his two famous cousins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart. He earned 39 Top 10 hits and 17 No. 1 songs throughout his career.
