Mickey Gilley was raised by Arthur Fillmore and Irene Gilley in Mississippi. He is the cousin of the rock ‘n’ roll icon Lee Lewis who had a huge impact on Mickey, and little by little introduced him to the Gospel, and boogie-woogie music, and even taught him how to play the piano.

Mickey’s professional career beginnings trace back to the 1950s, when he released several singles, and soon met up with Huey Meaux, with whom he recorded and released his first record “Call Me Shorty”, which was somewhat successful. During the 1960s, he performed in many clubs, slowly building his career, and in 1967 released his debut album, entitled “Down The Line”, through Paula Records. After the initial success of the album, Gilley decided to start his own bar, entitled “Gilley`s Club”, which became more and more successful with each year, receiving recognition as the world’s biggest honky tonk club.

In the 1970s, Mickey returned to music, releasing a song “Room Full of Roses”, which was soon followed by an album of the same name. The album topped the US Country chart, and the song became one of Mick`s best songs.

During the 1970s, Mickey released several albums, including “First Class” (1977), “Flyin` High” (1978), “City Lights” (1975), and “Smokin`” (1976), among others which spawned hits like “She`s Pulling Me Back Again”, “Window Up Above”, and “Honky Tonk Memories”, all of which increased his popularity as well Mick`s net worth, thanks to the sales of those albums.

In 1980s, his albums dropped in popularity, however, he had several singles, such as “You Don`t Know Me”, “Stand By Me”, “Talk To Me”, “Fool For Your Love”, “Put Your Dreams Away”, and many others, that topped the US Country chart, and added to his net worth.

His success started to decline, and he decided to take a hiatus, returning in 1996 with an album “I Saw The Light”, and then his last studio album came out in 2003, entitled “Invitation Only”.

Thanks to his successful career, Mickey received several awards and recognitions, including the Entertainer of the Year in 1976, by the Academy of Country Music, and induction into the Delta Music Museum Hall of Fame in 2002. Furthermore, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2011.

When it comes to his personal life, Mickey Gilley has been married twice. His first wife was Geraldine Garrett, who he married in 1953 but they divorced in 1960. In 1962 he married Vivian Gilley and they are still married. He has four children, four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Mickey is a licensed pilot, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, and still enjoys flying.
