back in March I posted that my grandpa was going to be on American Pickers on History Channel. They came out and filmed in March and they are finally airing the episode. My dad was actually supposed to be there the day of filming, but couldn't make it. He was so disappointed that he didn't get to meet them. It will be airing on Monday, September 5th at 9/8C and again September 7th at 8/7C. Check it out if you have the channel.
I also hinted at the time that my grandpa is well known to country music lovers and even some people who don't love country music, but may happen to be John Travolta fans. My grandpa is Mickey Gilley and is well known for his country music and owning the honkey tonk, Gilley's which the movie Urban Cowboy (starring John Travolta and Debra Winger) was filmed at. I live in the town where it was filmed so everybody knows who my grandpa is and has seen the movie. I'm hoping some of you know what I'm talking about. I always told everybody that if my grandpa wasn't Mickey Gilley then I probably would have no clue who he is since he's an older country music singer. LOL!
