Dolly Parton and Barry Gibb Share a Behind the Scenes Video of the Making of “Words”

Barry Gibb has revisited some of his most iconic songs in the new album Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers’ Songbook (Vol. 1) — which is available now.

The 12 tracks include vocal contributions from Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town, and others, including Dolly Parton, who joins the former Bee Gees front man on “Words.”

In a behind the scenes video on the making of the track, Dolly admits that it’s one of her favorite Bee Gees songs. After asking Barry how long ago he wrote “Words,” he replied “40 years ago” to which Dolly joked that she’s heard it for 40 years, but never thought she’d get to sing on a version of it with him.

Also in the behind the scenes video, you can watch Barry and Dolly not only working on the song, but there’s a moment where Dolly thanks Barry for writing and producing her hit song “Islands in the Stream” which she sang with Kenny Rogers. The two also trade memories, and Barry notes that they are in the very same studio where Dolly recorded her own iconic songs “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You.”

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
