According to media reports, Gibb’s son introduced him to Chris Stapleton’s music. At that time, Gibb and country music superstar producer Dave Cobb (Dave Cobb) got in touch to write records together. It turns out that Cobb is a major fan of Bee Gees.
Gibb admitted that he “has no sense of belonging” to release a country album early in his career.
Gibb told the media: “You know the situation in Nashville; it’s a fairly closed circle if you want to.” “Even if you like music and want to be there, it’s hard to penetrate. If you go into another realm of music , You must work hard to be accepted.”
Despite his eagerness to pursue the country world, Gibb acknowledged the important role disco played in the history of music, even after being strongly opposed.

Gibb said: “…In the late 1970s, all music has something very beautiful and rhythmic. For my life, I don’t know why anyone thinks it should be reviewed.” “But this is a project – It’s kind of like making a movie. You become a character and you try to blend in with the soundtrack… But for me, reinventing myself is the greatest joy.”
Gibb is very grateful for bringing his beloved song to life in Nashville. However, his brothers are always in his mind.
“of course [I miss them]He said: “We spent more than 40 years around a microphone; how can you surpass that? You don’t know but as far as I know, if I have a chance to be on stage, they are by my side. I can still smell Morris ( Maurice) used cologne. When you are at a microphone, there are some things you will never forget.”
Today, Gibb is determined to continue to be a singer and introduces the music created with his brothers to new listeners.
He said: “This is my task.” “It has nothing to do with me, it has nothing to do with Bee Gees. It has to do with those songs and how special they are to me. I hope people will continue to remember them, and this is what it does. a method.”
