41 years after taking it to number one on the Billboard country charts, the legendary Johnny Lee teamed up with his talented daughter, Cherish, to perform “Lookin’ For Love.”
Lee first released the song as part of the Urban Cowboy soundtrack in 1980. The movie catapulted country music to the forefront of popular culture and gave new life to already released music like The Charlie Daniels Band’s “Devil Went Down To Georgia” and “Lyin’ Eyes” by the Eagles.
18 songs were included on the album, three of which went number one: “Lookin’ for Love,” “Stand by Me” by Mickey Gilley, and “Could I Have This Dance” by Anne Murray. “Look What You’ve Done to Me” by Boz Scaggs went to number three and Kenny Rogers’ “Love the World Away” peaked at number four. The album has since been certified Platinum, selling over three million copies.
At the 2020 CMA Awards, Old Dominion was asked to pay tribute to the 40th anniversary of Urban Cowboy with a performance of “Lookin’ For Love,” with Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee in the audience!
Just one year later, Lee came to the Country Rebel Ranch in Tennessee with his daughter, Cherish, to perform that same song. Sitting on a stool, Johnny started the song with his daughter by his side, effortlessly singing the opening the lyrics. Cherish joined in during the chorus adding angelic harmonies throughout the song.
Now 75 years old, Lee has proven that he’s still got it! Watch their duet below.
