Early morning Saturday, October 26 (Japanese time), Barry Gibb took off for Nashville. He tweeted:
Taking off for Nashville. See you at the Opry. Last gig of the year. Wish me luck.
According to Express (online version dated October 28, 2013), etc., once in Nashville, Barry attended the induction ceremony for Country Music Hall of Fame.
Kelly Lang who performed "Islands in the Stream" with Barry during the induction for Kenny Rogers reports on her Facebook:
Did last night really happen? Wow, I thought it was a dream. I was not able to announce mine and Barry's performance for Kenny Rogers induction into the hall of Fame for over 2 months!! What a thrill to sing for him with the man who wrote and produced Islands in The Stream...Mr. Barry Gibb!!! I'm still shaking from being so nervous singing in front of my musical heroes! Come to the Grand Ole Opry tomorrow night as Barry will sing more songs, and I will join him on stage again.
Also, her husband TG Sheppard describes the occasion on his Facebook as "truly incredible" :
Most importantly, I got a chance to see my wife Kelly Lang sing "Islands In The Stream" with our friend Barry Gibb, in honor of Kenny Rogers.
TG and Kelly have some great photos with Barry on their Facebooks pages, too.
Barry's performance at Grand Ole Opry will be available live at this link from 19:00, Tuesday, October 29 (CDT).
