Johnny Lee and The Urban Cowboy Band are bringing some love to Schroeder Dance Hall.

Best known for his 1980 single, "Lookin' for Love," Johnny Lee, now 67, racked up a handful of hits during his career, all the while continuing to tour and record music.

With a voice as smooth as honey, he was inducted in 2004 to the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in Carthage.

Early in his career, he took a small role in John Travolta's Hollywood hit, "Urban Cowboy," while his single release, "Lookin' for Love" climbed to No. 1 and was certified Platinum.

In addition, five of his songs reached the top of the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart.

His other hits include "One in a Million" from 1980; "Bet Your Heart on Me" from 1981; "The Yellow Rose," a duet with Lane Brody and the theme song for the NBC series "The Yellow Rose," from 1984; and "You Could Have Heard a Heartbreak" from 1984.

Continuing his run in show business, Johnny appeared on "Fantasy Island," "CHiPS," "The Fall Guy," "The A-Team" and "The Grande Ole' Opry."

In 1996, he was named Veteran Music Singer of the Year for his gospel recording, "He Could Have Walked On By."

He is currently in the throes of a Texas tour that includes dates at the Leon Springs Dance Hall in San Antonio and the Heart of Texas Country Music Association's 25th Anniversary Celebration in Brady.
