Urban Cowboy is a romantic western film that was adapted from an article in Esquire magazine, based on a romance between two people who frequented a local honky-tonk bar that was owned by country artist Mickey Gilley in Pasadena, Texas. Travolta’s character Bud Davis relocates to Houston for work in the oil industry, with a goal in mind to save enough money to move back to his hometown and buy land. While residing in Houston Bud becomes a regular at the local honky-tonk Gilley’s where he meets his love interest Sissy Davis, played by Debra Winger. Problems start to arise within their relationship and take a turn for the worst when Bud decides to leave the bar with another woman named Pam, played by Madolyn Smith.
The soundtrack for Urban Cowboy was a huge hit and produced top songs for many well-known artists including Kenny Rogers’ “Love the World Away,” Mickey Gilley’s “Stand By Me,” Johnny Lee’s, “Lookin For Love,” and Anne Murray’s, “Can I Have This Dance.”
