Keith Urban, Little Big Town to Honor Bee Gees in Grammy Tribute
Keith Urban and Little Big Town will be joining a host of other talented artists to pay tribute to the Bee Gees, in a TV special put on by the Grammys.
The Recording Academy is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever, which featured the iconic song “Stayin’ Alive,” and to do so they’re airing Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees on Feb. 14, two days after the 2017 Grammy Awards ceremony airs.
Along with Urban and Little Big Town, pop artists including Celine Dion, Demi Lovato, Pentatonix, Tori Kelly, Andra Day and many others will be paying their respects to the five-time Grammy winners and recipients of the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award. Co-founding Bee Gees member Barry Gibb will also be performing a selection of hits from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.
2017 Grammy Nominations Revealed
Urban is slated to perform at the Grammy Awards alongside Carrie Underwood, who recently appeared with him on some overseas dates on his Ripcord Tour. He just earned his 22nd No. 1 with his most recent single “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” his fourth consecutive No. 1 off Ripcord.
Little Big Town are getting ready to release a new record Feb. 24, titled The Breaker, for which the group just revealed the track listing and album art. It includes the single “Better Man,” written by Taylor Swift, who sent it to the artists unsolicited. The band is slated to take up a six-show residency this year at the Ryman as part of the venue's 125th anniversary.
