Miranda Lambert channels her inner ’70s singer with a new collaboration with Barry Gibb and Jay Buchanan.

Lambert’s voice is instantly recognizable on a new version of “Jive Talkin’,” a massive hit in the 1970s for Gibb’s band the Bee Gees. The country star leads several lines and harmonizes in the song, which puts a country twist on the groovy classic.

Originally, “Jive Talkin'” was the first single released from the Bee Gee’s Main Course album. The song also appeared in Saturday Night Fever, which starred John Travolta. The Bee Gees music was at the heart of the movie, and the band wrote and produced most of the soundtrack. Both “Jive Talkin'” and Saturday Night Fever hit No. 1 on the charts. The soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever held the top position for 24 straight weeks and was certified 16 times platinum. 

“Jive Talkin'” will be featured on Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol. 1. The 12-track album will feature collaborations with country, bluegrass, and Americana artists, including Lambert, Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, and more.
