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.
