Lionel Richie is an American R&B and pop singer-songwriter, who has released ten studio albums, three live albums, and seven compilation albums. Formerly the lead vocalist of The Commodores, Richie began a solo career in the early 1980s and has released over 40 singles, five of which became number-one hits on the US Billboard Hot 100. Richie's first three studio albums have all been certified "Multi-Platinum" by the Recording Industry Association of America

Tuskegee is the tenth studio album by American singer Lionel Richie, released on March 5, 2012, on Mercury Records. The album consists entirely of reinterpretations of previously released songs by Richie, each performed with a different guest artist. It became Richie's third number-one album on the Billboard 200 and his first since Dancing on the Ceiling in 1986. Tuskegee also became Richie's first album to sell more than a million copies in the United States since Dancing on the Ceiling.

Legendary singer Lionel Richie has spent the past five decades making timeless pop songs. He takes a new musical direction with his latest album, Tuskegee. Richie pays tribute to his Southern roots on his new duets album. First-week sales reached nearly 199,000 copies, making it Richie’s highest-charting album since 1986. Promotion for Tuskegee included a stop at this year’s South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. Several thousand people attended the show, and to Richie’s surprise, the new younger generation of music fans knew all the words to his songs. That might not have been the case, had Richie listened to some of the ideas he was given for his latest project.

Lionel Richie's birthplace is Tuskegee, Alabama so for his 2012 country duets album, Tuskegee, he is trumpeted as the country boy returning to his roots. And there's something to that: as a songwriter, Richie has had success on the country charts, scoring big with Kenny Rogers of "Lady," one of many Lionel covers Kenny sang over the years

Tuskegee does more than acknowledge Lionel Richie's roots; it points out the similarities of today’s country music and the R&B/pop blend he perfected 30 years ago. Drawing on his formidable list of hits, Richie pairs up with a host of Nashville veterans and newcomers, with consistently impressive results. The emphasis is on the songs themselves, with touches of fiddle and pedal steel adding downhome flavors. Dancing on the Ceiling and Say You, Say Me (featuring Rascal Flatts and Jason Aldean, respectively) work especially well in a countrified setting.

2012 release, a Country album from the Soul/Pop veteran. Surpassing his creative and personal boundaries, Richie comes full circle with the innovative and personal Tuskegee, performing 13 of his most revered "anthems of our day" with some of the biggest names in Country music, including Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Billy Currington, Little Big Town and Jason Aldean
