Credited with starting a shift in country music’s style, the 1980 film Urban Cowboy had more of an impact than most country fans likely realize. Its focus on songs with a more pop-country sound led to a greater pop-country movement in the 1980s and the decades to follow.
Starring John Travolta as a cowboy named Bud and Debra Winger as Sissy, Urban Cowboy tells the tale of their hectic lives and relationship. The majority of the movie takes place at a Houston honky-tonk named Gilley’s, which is where Bud’s “cowboy” side is introduced to the “urban” side of country life.
