Country cover of The Bee Gee's "Jive Talkin'"


Not sure what made Barry Gibb think, "Hmmm, I should turn all of my songs in country songs", but he went ahead and did it. Enter into the picture “Greenfields — The Gibb Brothers’ Songbook Vol. 1.” This album has Barry on all the cuts, along with duet partners Keith Urban, Brandi Carlile, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Jason Isbell, Olivia Newton-John and Dolly Parton just to name a few. So how did this album come about? "My eldest son Steven went to Nashville, collaborated with Jay Landers who worked with me on the Barbra Streisand albums, and took the helm — courted country artists that I loved. With Dolly (Parton)? She and I have a longstanding friendship, but Alison Krauss. Miranda Lambert… My God. I’ve been fortunate. You can’t count on everybody. I’m delighted as to who said yes. Chris Stapleton wanted to do it but he had just come off the road." “Greenfields — The Gibb Brothers’ Songbook Vol. 1” is out now.
