"I have dreamed of performing on the hallowed stage of the Opry since I was 12 years old, so this is a dream come true for me," Barry says of the gig. "There is no greater honor."
Friday's Opry bill also includes bluegrass great Ricky Skaggs and country star Darryl Worley.
Robin Gibb passed away on May 20 at the age of 62 after battling cancer and intestinal problems. Barry also lost his other two brothers, Maurice and Andy, in 2003 and 1988, respectively.
Last month, Barry posted a Twitter message that read, "I will live on the music and no matter what stage I'm standing on my three brothers will be standing there with me.
