Pop icon to perform on Opry

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - He's probably best known for his contribution to the "Saturday Night Fever" pop disco soundtrack, but Barry Gibb has dreamed of performing on country music's biggest stage since he was 12 years old. On July 27th he'll make his Grand Ole Opry debut and he says for him "there is no greater honor." Gibb and his brothers, now all deceased, wrote and recorded hits for their band, the Bee Gees. They also wrote for other artists including Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, who topped the country and pop charts with their crossover hit "Islands in the Stream."
