If you read the answer to the Daily Trivia today, you would know that Lionel Richie has had some roots in Country Music. Now, Lionel is going to have a new Country album to be released as early as this summer. It is going to be duets with Country artists singing his old hits. Some songs have been already recorded, such as “Stuck On You” with Darius Rucker, “Lady” with Kenny Rogers, “Sail On” with Tim McGraw, “Easy” with Willie Nelson, “Deep River Woman” with Little Big Town, “You Are” with Blake Shelton and “All Night Long” with Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. He still plans to do recordings with Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland and the Zac Brown Band.
One thought on “Lionel Richie Goes Country”
This is right up my alley. Grew up with a country-loving dad, so some of that rubbed off on me. Also grew up loving soul and funk, so Lionel Richie has been a favorite of mine.
I’d like to hear a country version of “Just To Be Close To You.”
