Mickey Gilley Injured in Car Accident

Country music artist Mickey Gilley and his son were injured in a vehicle accident in Texas, but both are recovering after minor injuries. Michael Gilley is largely unharmed, but Mickey Gilley suffered two broken bones in the crash. Mickey Gilley, per a press release, suffered a broken right shoulder and a broken ankle, as well as some bumps and bruises. Country music artist Gilley and his son were injured in a auto accident in Texas, but both are recovering after minor injuries.

Gilley will reschedule his show at the Texas Theatre in Greenville, Texas, set for January 6; a new date will be announced in the coming weeks.

In a Facebook post Thursday, Gilley, 81, says he's "pretty good" but "having a hard time walking" because of a medical boot on his left leg. Several of his other hits include "Chains of Love" (1977), "Honky Tonk Memories" (1977), "She's Pulling Me Back Again" (1977), and "Here Comes the Hurt Again" (1978). He plans to resume performances on January 20 at the Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale, Florida.

KFDM reports that the 81-year-old-singer and pianist and his son Michael were traveling through the small town of Lufkin, Texas, on their way to Branson, Mo., where Gilley owns a theater and performs on a regular basis. "I will be out there on the road and I'll see you real soon".

Word is that another driver ran a stop sign in front of them, and Michael Gilley swerved, but the SUV clipped the other vehicle which caused his SUV to roll over and landed upside-down in a median.

A member of the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame, the Natchez, Mississippi native has been performing since 1957. In 1970, he opened Gilley's Club in Pasadena, Texas, which became the subject of the famous 1980 film, Urban Cowboy, starring John Travolta.
