Watch Keith Urban Explain How the Bee Gees Transcended Generations With Their “Timeless” Sound

Artists from all genres of music—including Keith Urban, Jason Derulo and Celine Dion—spread the Bee Gees love in February during the taping of the TV special, Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Bee Gees, which will air on Sunday, April 16.

On the country front, a handful of stars took the stage to honor the Bee Gees, including Keith, Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett and Little Big Town.

Keith performed “To Love Somebody,” a song he says is “simple” and “beautiful.”

“The thing I’m amazed at is how [the Bee Gees] maintained such quality of songwriting through decades and so many sort of stylistic changes in music through those periods, and the songcraft level was always extraordinary,” says Keith. “They created a particular kind of pop R&B style that is timeless—it’s really timeless.”

Watch Keith explain how the Bee Gees transcended generations with their timeless sound below.

Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Bee Gees will air on Easter Sunday, April 16, on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
