Country music singer Mickey Gilley's net worth is $20 million. Gilley gained his net worth through having a lifelong career as a prominent country singer. It is quite safe to say the Gilley's music career existed, thanks to his cousin, rock and roll singer Jerry Lee Lewis. He didn't consider himself as a professional singer until Lewis had a massive hit in the 1950s. Gilley started to record a few singles in the late 1950s - in fact, one of his songs, Call me Shortly (1958), did considerably well. By the 1960s Gilley went on to play in numerous clubs and bars, gaining an impressive following in Texas. Under Paula Records, Gilley released his debut album, Down the Line (1967), where he had a minor hit with Now I Can Live Again. By 1970, Gilley opened his first club in Pasadena in Texas called Gilley's Club. However the club now demolished to make way for a school. In 1974, Gilley was signed to Playboy Records and arguably the rest was history. The first hit, House of Roses, gave him national prominence and remains one of his signature songs. Throughout the 1970s, Gilley made hits after hits which include, City Lights, Window Up Above, Bring it On Home to Me and She's Pulling me back Again. However towards the end of 1970s, Gilley's popularity was slowly fading, with many of his song just making the top ten in the country charts. By the 1980s, Gilley decide to make his sound more pop-friendly. His popularity picked up when he did a cover of Stand by Me for the 1980 blockbuster, Urban Cowboy. Gilley's version of the song stole the top spot on the Country chart. Gilley's popularity was on the up as six number ones hit followed which include True Love Ways, A Headache Tomorrow (or a headache Tonight?) and Lonely Nights. In 1998, Gilley was signed to Airborne Records and released an album, Chasin' Rainbows, which produced his last hit, She Reminded Me of You. Gilley 's career, which spanned over 15 years, produced 17 number one hits in the country charts. Today, Gilley owns a theatre in Missouri.
Mickey Leroy Gilley (born March 9, 1936) is an American country music singer and musician. Although he started out singing straight-up country and western material in the 1970s, he moved towards a more pop-friendly sound in the 1980s, bringing him further success on not just the country charts, but the pop charts as well. Among his biggest hits are "Room Full of Roses," "Don't the Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time," and the remake of the Soul hit "Stand by Me". He is also the cousin of Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl McVoy, Jim Gilley and Jimmy Swaggart.
