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.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
