One of the great country crooners is Mickey Gilley. Today, we begin our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. with the number one country song on this day in 1980, "Stand By Me". This song was originally a pop hit recorded by Ben E. King in 1961, and it's been recorded by a number of artists through the years including John Lennon of Beatles fame.

Here's a video of Mickey Gilley onstage at Branson, Missouri singing "Stand By Me".

Enter Mickey Gilley as the first artist of today's "Country Classic Double" in our Rewards Club for a chance to win tickets to see Larry the Cable Guy and more!
