The old Gilley's opened in 1971 and hosted nearly every major country star in the late 1970s and early 1980s
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; a whole new batch of Buds and Sissys could soon be flocking to Pasadena to look for love in all the wrong places, if all goes to plan for a legendary country singer and his business partners.
Last week country legend Mickey Gilley took to his Facebook page to tease plans for a new Gilley’s location in his native Pasadena. It obviously excited residents in the area and most everyone who’s ever seen “Urban Cowboy” at some time.
Plans have been rumored for what seems like years now, with officials from Pasadena and even Gilley himself dropping hints about a new era of honky-tonk to come to the city, nearly 25 years since the world-famous location was gutted by a fire in 1990.
