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.
