A Mickey Gilley show is full of stories, music, and tender moments. The audience may dance in the aisles, sing along, and laugh with Gilley. Gilley's number one love is his music, but he continues to give back to the community. He recently received the Pioneer Award presented to him by the Branson Area Chamber of Commerce. He does two shows a year where the admittance is dog food and he gives the food to the local shelters. He participates in local benefits, veteran shows, and promotes Branson all over the United States.
