The country music film that defined a generation and spawned a boom. This film showed the end of one era in America and the beginning of a new one. John Travolta played Bud, the cowboy who traded the small-town for the bigger city, his ranch-hand job for one at a refinery, traded his horse for a pick-up truck and traded his bull-riding for a mechanical one. Shot in Pasadena, Texas the film popularized mechanical bull riding, Lone Star beer and the Gilley's nightclub owned by country star Mickey Gilley. The film featured several country stars but mainly focused on the love-life of Bud and Sissy (played by Debra Winger). With "hard hat days and honkytonk nights" Bud found love and marriage with Sissy. The great soundtrack chronicled their ups and downs. The soundtrack welcomed The Eagles, Boz Scaggs, Dan Fogelberg,Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, Joe Walsh in with the country favorites by Johnny Lee ("Lookin' For Love") and The Charlie Daniels Band ("The Devil Went Down to Georgia"). The music in the soundtrack displayed a change in the modern country music fan who required a little more rock and rollin their two-step. The influence of outlaw country and late-70s rock played heavily in the generation of country fans that would follow. Urban Cowboy helped to set the stage for the country fan and music of today. The soundtrack was a number one album on the country charts and crossed-over to the number 3 spot on the Billboard 200, not before and not since had this ever happened in America.
