Johnny Lee, who is best known for his 1980s hits “Lookin’ For Love” and music from the 1980 film Urban Cowboy starring John Travolta, is having two brain surgeries in August.

Lee took to his Facebook last night to say, “August 7th I’m having brain surgery in Houston because of my Parkinson’s disease. It will help me walk better. August 21st will be the 2nd part of my brain surgery. I will then go back 2 weeks later and get a battery put in.”

He added, “I’m doing this all because I’m having problems walking. I will be fine. I’m asking for prayers. God gave me the talent and I plan on using it until the day I die. Thank you! Xoxo.”

Lee has five shows scheduled between now and July 27 but is currently scheduled to return to performing on August 30 in Biloxi, Miss. A full list of tour dates can be found at TheJohnnyLeeMusic.com.
