BEE GEE BARRY GIBB GOING COUNTRY

Barry Gibb, lead vocalist for the classic pop group the Bee Gees, wants to record a country album.

Barry was in Nashville to appear at a proclamation tribute to the late rock star Roy Orbison, as well as to perform at a benefit show for tornado victims in Sumner County, outside of Nashville. He recently purchased the home of Johnny and June Carter Cash and plans to live there this summer. And according to Nashville’s daily newspaper, The Tennessean, Barry also wishes to record a country album in Music City. Though a native Australian, Barry is no stranger to country music, as he co-wrote the Dolly Parton-Kenny Rogers No. 1 classic, “Islands in the Stream.”
