Old Dominion celebrated the 40th anniversary of the film, Urban Cowboy, with a performance of Johnny Lee’s “Lookin’ For Love” at the 54th annual CMA Awards.
“Showing a little bit more of our Country side,” Ramsey explained of the performance. “It’ll be nice to hear some applause after you play a song… hopefully. I’ll take boos at this point.”
Urban Cowboy is a 1980 American romantic Western film directed by James Bridges. The movie is about a love-hate relationship between Buford (John Travolta) and Sissy (Debra Winger), capturing the late 1970s/early 1980s popularity of country music. Most of the movie was centered around the Gilley’s Club in Pasadena, Texas, which is a football field sized honky tonk.
The country quintet received 2 nominations at this year’s CMA Awards including Album of the Year (Old Dominion) and Vocal Group of the Year.
