Lionel Richie – Country Duets on New Album
We told you earlier about this project from Mr. Richie. It's a collection of duets with a definite country flavor and it could be one of his biggest albums in recent years.
The album is called Tuskegee and it's been in the works for quite a while now. The album is set to drop later this month and will offer country fans a chance to hear Richie's amazing voice teaming up with country talents like Shania Twain, Jennifer Nettles, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney and Kenny Rogers.
Lionel Richie and Kenny Rogers have been close friends for years. Lionel calls him his mentor. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Lionel said of Kenny:
He's probably single-handedly the most important person to launch me into the next ozone of my life.
For you fans of Kenny Rogers, you'll probably remember his recording of Lady in 1980. Lady was written and produced by Lionel Richie and, of course, was one of the biggest hits of his career.
So, we're watching this one closely. I'm pretty sure that there will be at least a couple of these singles that will hit the charts as the summer progresses.
Let us know what you think. Do you this will be a good collaboration album?
