Before he started singing, he shared that the Bee Gees were a huge inspiration to him. He felt like he had an extra connection with the Gibb brothers as Keith lived quite close by. “They were living about 100 miles from where I grew up with my family and truly, that sort of thing makes your dreams seem a little bit closer,” he said.

A lot of musicians were also present and all performed songs as a tribute to the legendary Bee Gees. Among the artists were Demi Lovato, Ed Sheeran, Andra Day, Celine Dion, Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett. However, Keith Urban definitely stole the show when he performed on the stage of CBS’ ‘Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees’ special broadcast.

Keith calls the song ‘To Love Somebody’ one of the greatest love songs ever written. When you take a look at Keith’s performance, it’s not hard to see why. ‘To Love Somebody’ was written by Barry and Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees and was released in 1967. It reached the Top 20 in the music charts in the US after its release.

“The thing I’m amazed at is how they maintained such quality of songwriting through decades and so many sorts of stylistic changes in music through those periods, and the song craft level was always extraordinary”, Keith said in admiration.

“Also, what they do really well, is that their songs always had very strong chorus structure that anybody could sing to.”
