Mickey Gilley hopes to bring back Gilley's Nightclub

PASADENA, TX

Gilley's became famous worldwide when it was featured in the movie, "Urban Cowboy" in the early 80s. It was a must see for visitors to the Houston area back then, but it burned down in 1989 after lawsuits between the founders.

Yesterday, Gilley went on Facebook to say he's looking for investors to rebuild Gilley's. He gave out a phone number and urged people to call if they want to invest.
