This April, some of your favorite country stars will join forces with artists from across all genres to honor the legendary group known as the Bee Gees.
Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Thomas Rhett and Keith Urban are all set to take part in the Recording Academy’s Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees television special.
As part of the show, Ballerini, Little Big Town, Rhett and Urban will all take to the stage, along with many other artists to perform the classic songs made famous by the Bee Gees.
Ballerini and Rhett will perform “Islands In The Stream” together. Of course, the song was performed by country icons Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, but it was written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.
Little Big Town will be busy during the television special. The country group will perform the Bee Gees’ 1977 song “How Deep Is Your Love,” which appeared on the soundtrack for the film Saturday Night Fever. They will also take to the stage with Andra Day, Tori Kelly and Demi Lovato for a medley of “Stayin’ Alive,” “Tragedy,” “How Deep Is Your Love” and “Night Fever.”
Keith Urban will take to the stage to perform the Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody.”
The full lineup for the show will include artists Andra Day, Celine Dion, DNCE, Nick Jonas, Tori Kelly, Demi Lovato, Katharine McPhee, Panic! at the Disco, Pentatonix, Ed Sheeran, Jason Derulo, Tavares, John Legend, Stevie Wonder and Barry Gibb.
There will also be special appearances by Cynthia Erivo, John Travolta and Wilmer Valderrama.
