A Bee Gees country cover album is coming!
Barry Gibb has announced he is teaming up with some of the biggest names in country music to reimagine the Bee Gees catalog.
Keith Urban, Dolly Parton, Olivia Newton-John and Sheryl Crow are some of the people lending their voices to the album which will see a country tinge given to some of the Bee Gees’ best-loved songs he made with his late brothers, Maurice and Robin.
"From the first day we stepped into RCA Studios in Nashville (the very place where Elvis, Willie, Waylon, Roy, the Everly Brothers and so many other legends made their magic) the album took on a life of its own," Gibb said in a statement.
"I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to work with Dave and all the artists who stopped by. They were all incredibly generous with their time and talent. They inspired me more than words can express. I feel deep down that Maurice and Robin would have loved this album for different reasons. I wish we could have all been together to do it…but I think we were."
