Watch Keith Urban, Little Big Town Perform at Grammys Bee Gees Tribute
In mid-February, Keith Urban and Little Big Town joined a star-studded lineup of musical artists to celebrate the legacy of the Bee Gees during a special Grammys tribute event. The full show is now scheduled to air in mid-April, but fans can scroll down to get a sneak peek at Urban and LBT's performances.
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Bee Gees' legendary soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever (which won Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards following its release in the late 1970s) and honoring the disco trailblazers, Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees was filmed on Feb. 14 in Los Angeles. During their time onstage, Little Big Town covered the Bee Gees' seminal pop ballad "How Deep Is Your Love."
With both groups known for beautiful harmonies, LBT were a perfect band to pay homage to Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb; readers can press play below to see their performance. "How Deep Is Your Love" was released as a single in 1977; it topped the Billboard Hot 100 and became the first of six consecutive No. 1 hits for the Bee Gees.
Fellow Australian Urban took the stage at the Stayin' Alive tribute concert to perform "To Love Somebody;" he introduced the tune as "one of the most beautiful love songs ever written." Released in 1967 as the second single from the Bee Gees' international debut disc, "To Love Somebody" reached No. 17 on the U.S. charts and has since been covered by everyone from Nina Simone to Michael Bolton to Michael Bublé. Urban's own rendition traded out the song's synth-heavy melody for a stripped-down guitar line, perfectly pairing the country star's soulful vocals with the track's heartfelt lyrics.
Along with Urban and LBT, Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees featured performances from more than a dozen other artists, including Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett, Celine Dion, John Legend and Stevie Wonder, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Pentatonix and Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb. The show is scheduled to air on April 16 at 8PM ET on CBS.
