Stand By Me On Today’s Classic Double
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".
