After giving disco fans a fever at night in the 70’s, Barry Gibb of B Gees is turning his first love into country music.
The 74-year-old Green has released a new album called “Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers’ Songbook VO1,” B Gee’s Music Collection “with songs by well-known artists from Nashville, including Dash Parton and Keith Urban.
The last surviving Gibb brother, who has continued the family musical legacy as a solo artist, migrated from the UK to Australia as a child. However, Gibbon told NPR on Friday that he has been passionate about American country music for many years.
“I was about 9 or 10 years old,” Gibe explained. “It really was in my system and it never left. Bluegrass music and country music really cared more about me than anything else. Once all my brothers were no longer with me, once I was alone, then I was able to concentrate.” Well, what is my passion? “

According to the outlet, Gibb’s son introduced him to Chris Stapleton’s music. It was only then that Gibb, the country’s music star’s producer, Dave Cobb, arrived to work on the record together. It turned out that Cobb was a big fan of B. Geese.
Gibb admitted that he had “no sense of belonging” to release a country album early in his career.
“You know what it’s like in Nashville, it’s a pretty closed circle if you like,” Gibbon told the outlet. “And even if you like music and you want to be there, it’s a difficult place to get into … If you go into another field of music, you have to work very hard to adapt.”
Despite his eagerness to advance in the world of the country, Gibe acknowledged the important role played by disco in music history – even then there was a strong reaction against it.
According to a Los Angeles Times report, on July 12, 1979, Chicago shock-jock DJ Steve Dahl famously hosted “Disco Demolition Night.”

“… there was something very beautiful and rhythmic about all that music in the late 70’s, and for my life I don’t know why anyone felt it should be censored, which it was,” Gibe said. “But it was a project – like making a movie. You become a character and you try to sit off the soundtrack … but rebuilding yourself is the biggest fun of all, for me.”
Gibb is thankful for giving new life to his favorite songs in Nashville. However, his brothers have always been on his mind.
“Of course [I miss them], “He said.” We’ve spent 40 years around a microphone; How do you ever get past that? You are not But if I get a chance to be on stage, as far as I can tell, they are there with me. I can still smell the cologne used by Murris. When you’re around a microphone, there are things you can never forget. “
These days, Gibb will continue to move forward as an artist and is determined to present the music he created with his brothers to a new audience.
“It’s a mission for me,” he said. “It’s not about me, it’s not about B. Geese. It’s just about those songs and how special they are to me. I want people to remember them, and this was the way to do it.”
