Bluegrass star Ricky Skaggs and BEE GEES star Barry Gibb have teamed up for an unlikely new collaboration.

The odd couple came together in the studio to record the track Soldier's Son, which will feature on banjo player Skaggs' new album, Music To My Ears.

And the Country Boy hitmaker reveals Gibb wrote the track with him in mind.

He tells Billboard.com, "He recorded a song and sent it to me as a demo to see if I wanted to record it. I told him I was going to be doing a new bluegrass record soon, and would he think about coming in and recording it with me.

"He said, 'I don't have to think about it. Just tell me when you want me and I'm there.'"

Everyone forgets the Bee Gees have written and produced country hits for YEARS. One of Olivia Newton-John's first hits, when she was a country artist, was the award-winning "Come On Over", written by the Brothers Gibb. "Rest Your Love On Me", Conway Twitty's last #1 Country hit, another Brothers Gibb song. And the biggest selling Country single - "Islands In The Stream" - written and produced by the Bee Gees.
