Lionel Richie Tuskegee

Lionel Richie Tuskegee, If he hadn’t known better, Lionel Richie jokes that he might have felt insulted when initially sitting down with some of today’s top country stars to record his new album of duets, “Tuskegee.”

“I pulled out the lyrics to the songs, and they were like, ‘what’s that?’ “I said, ‘here are the lyrics.’” Richie says with a mock look of astonishment, then smiles. “They said, ‘Oh no, man. I know this. I’ve been singing it since 1983 or 1987,’. Someone even said, ‘I’ve been singing these songs since I was in elementary school.’

“I was like, ‘Thank you very much, I didn’t need to hear that,’” the 62-year-old told Reuters about re-recording some of his memorable songs with the likes of Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Willie Nelson and Little Big Town.

“Tuskegee,” which hit record stores on Monday, features Richie and 13 country stars singing some top hits of his heyday in the 1980s, including “Hello,” “Stuck On You” and “All Night Long.”

Going country may seem out of place for the pop and R&B singer who gained stardom in the 1970s with the funk and soul group The Commodores, perfecting his brand of romantic ballads then embarking on a major solo career.
