Barry Gibb è stato l'ospite d'onore del concerto di beneficienza "A night oh Healing", che si è tenuto il primo di maggio ad Hendersonville (Tennesee), dove Barry ha acquistato recentemente la casa della country star Johnny Cash ed ha intenzione di scrivere un album di musica country.
Barry ha cantato "Islands in the stream" duettando con la cantante country Kelly Lang, organizzatrice dell'evento e compagna di T.G. Sheppard, artista country popolarissimo negli States. Al concerto hanno preso parte, oltre a Barry, alcune leggende della musica country : Ricky Skaggs, Lorrie Morgan, the Oak Ridge Boys, T.G, Sheppard, The Del McCoury Band, The Whites, Gary Allan, Connie Smith, Tommy Cash e Ralph Emery.

“A Night of Healing”, the benefit concert held [May 1, 2006] in Hendersonville, raised almost $70,000 for the United Way of Sumner County Tornado Relief Fund, according to Mike McClanahan president of United Way of Sumner County.
An acoustic guitar signed by all the artists was auctioned off for $4,500 to a couple from Troy, NY while a “Night of Healing” t-shirt, also signed by the artists, went for $775 to a Goodlettsville resident.
Organized by local singer/songwriter Kelly Lang  and the United Way of Sumner County, the concert drew more than 3,000 people.
New Hendersonville resident, Barry Gibb, made a special appearance along with legends Ricky Skaggs, Lorrie Morgan, the Oak Ridge Boys, T.G, Sheppard, The Del McCoury Band, The Whites, Gary Allan, Connie Smith, Tommy Cash and Ralph Emery, joining Lang in her efforts to help those who were impacted by the tornado that swept through Sumner County almost four weeks ago.
