Barry Gibb Performs Alongside Country Acts at Fundraiser

Singer-songwriter Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees joined a cast of country artists who performed Monday night (May 1) at a charity concert to benefit victims of a tornado that ripped through a Nashville suburb in April. Gibb recently became a part-time resident of Hendersonville, Tenn., after purchasing Johnny Cash’s former home on Old Hickory Lake. Gibb performed two Bee Gees classics — “To Love Somebody” and “Words” — before teaming with vocalist Kelly Lang on “Islands in the Stream,” which Gibb wrote with his brothers, Maurice and Robin. The concert at the Hendersonville High School football field raised more than $50,000. Gary Allan, the Del McCoury Band, Connie Smith, Tommy Cash, T.G. Sheppard, Lorrie Morgan and the Oak Ridge Boys also performed at the concert hosted by Ralph Emery and Nashville radio personality Cathy Martindale.
