Mickey Gilley Live at Shawnee Bluff Vineyard
Please welcome Mickey Gilley to Shawnee Bluff Vineyard August 19th, 2016! Tickets on Sale 4/2/16 at 8am.
Mickey’s first musical influence as a boy growing up in Ferriday, La., was his piano-pounding cousin, Jerry Lee Lewis. He grew up close to Jerry Lee and another famous cousin, Jimmy Swaggart, even as he snuck up to the windows of clubs to absorb the haunting sound of Louisiana rhythm-and-blues.
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. He was ranked among the top-fifty country music hitmakers in the 1989 book written by record research historian Joel Whitburn.
This is an all ages show with the music and food vendors starting at 5PM. Mickey Gilley takes the stage at 8PM and fireworks by Brilliant Skies will follow the show!
There is a parking fee of $5 with 50% proceeds going to L.A.M.B. Charity.
