Lionel Richie Previewing Country Duets Album On CMA Awards

Lionel Richie.

Lionel Richie has just been announced as the latest performer at the CMA Awards on November 9th. He’ll be previewing songs with Darius Rucker, Little Big Town and Rascal Flatts from his upcoming country duets album “Tuskegee.”

Lionel will release his album in March, which features some of country music’s hottest stars turning Lionel’s greatest hits into county duets. Some of the artists included on his record include Blake Shelton, Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson and Jimmy Buffet.

“I was born and raised in Tuskegee, Alabama. I am a country boy and proud of it. To do this project just felt natural,” says Richie.

“Growing up with country, R&B, gospel, and classical music from my grandmother and pop, Tuskegee was the perfect melting pot for my influences as a writer,” he says, “and the title, Tuskegee, is a validation of my growing up there—the place I call home.”

You can catch Lionel’s performance on the 45th annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards November 9th on ABC.
