Urban Legend: When a Nation Went Country (1 x feature-length) – Documentary that delves into the phenomenon sparked by the 1980 film Urban Cowboy – when country music found itself in vogue nationally for the first time in history. At the center of the new country movement was Gilley’s, the largest bar in the world located in the oilfields just outside Houston. The documentary tells the boom and bust story of this Texas-sized phenomenon and the honky-tonk that inspired it – the true story about the moment when a nation finally went country.
