Keith Urban, Little Big Town Set for Bee Gees Tribute: Ram Report

CBS special “Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees” also features performance by Nick Jonas, John Legend and Demi Lovato

Keith Urban and Little Big Town have been tapped to honor the Bee Gees at a Grammy-organized tribute concert occurring two days after the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees will take place on February 14th at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater. Other performers include Nick Jonas, Celine Dion, John Legend, Pentatonix, Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Andra Day and DNCE. Surviving Bee Gee Barry Gibb is also slated to perform at the event, which will be taped for later broadcast.

The focus of the tribute show is the 40th anniversary of the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever, a 1977 release that includes Bee Gees classics like “Stayin’ Alive,” “More Than a Woman,” “How Deep Is Your Love” and “Night Fever.” That soundtrack sold more than 15 million copies in the United States alone and is part of the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry.

Last year, Gibb released a solo album called In the Now. His brothers and fellow Bee Gees co-founders Maurice Gibb and Robin Gibb passed away in 2003 and 2012, respectively.

Urban is up for two Grammys at this year’s ceremony. Last year, Little Big Town took home the Best Country Duo/Group Performance trophy for “Girl Crush.”

The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center on February 12th on CBS. Confirmed performers include Urban and Carrie Underwood. No firm broadcast date for the Bee Gees tribute has been announced, but it is expected to air later this year on CBS.
