WBIO's Friday Spotlight Artist is Johnny Lee!! [VIDEO]

Every Friday 94.7 WBIO shines the spotlight on a group or artist in country music, this Friday it's Johnny Lee!!

John Lee Ham (born July 3, 1946) is an American country music singer, known professionally as Johnny Lee. His 1980 single, "Lookin' for Love" not only spent three weeks at the top of the Billboard country singles chart in the second half of 1980 but also went to the Top 5 on the Pop charts, and Top 10 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary survey. He racked up a series of country hits in the early and mid-80s.

Lee worked ten years with Mickey Gilley both on tour and at Gilley's Club in Pasadena, Texas. The 1980 hit movie Urban Cowboy was largely shot at Gilley's club. It was the soundtrack from the movie that catapulted Lee to fame. The record spawned several hit singles, one of which was Lee's "Lookin' for Love."

Lee had five songs reach the top of the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart. In addition to "Lookin' For Love," those songs are "One in a Million" (1980); "Bet Your Heart on Me" (1981); "The Yellow Rose" (1984, a duet with Lane Brody and the theme song to the NBC TV-series of the same name); and "You Could Have Heard a Heartbreak" (1984). His other major hits include "Pickin' Up Strangers" (1981), "Prisoner of Hope" (1981); "Cherokee Fiddle," "Sounds Like Love" and "Hey Bartender" (1983); and "Rollin' Lonely" and "Save the Last Chance" (1985).

In the fall of 2008, Lee returned to Branson to perform.

Lee has had two offspring: daughter Cherish (born 1982), with actress Charlene Tilton; and son John Ham Jr. (1990 - 2014), who died tragically of a heroin overdose at the age of 23.
