Lionel Richie released an album of duets with country stars called Tuskegee. Now he's calling on his 14-year-old daughter Sofia. She sang a duet in public for the first time with dear old dad. She's pretty good for 14 and she has a good stage presence. In the middle of the song she cracked everyone up when she said, 'Hit it, Dad.'
With a long and mega-successful career, you would think that Lionel Richie would have been nominated for practically every music award there is by now. But in the short time since he crossed over into the country side of things, Richie hasn't been formally honored for his work -- until now, that is. This year, the 'Just for You' hitmaker received his first ever CMA Awards nomination.
Lionel Richie has been hitting it off with lots of country superstars this week. Last night, Richie and Billy Currington stopped by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ to perform ‘Just for You,’ a track from ‘Tuskegee,’ Richie’s latest album.
You may know that Kenny Chesney makes an appearance with a host of country stars on Lionel Richie’s ‘Tuskegee‘ new country duets record, but do you know exactly how the ‘You and Tequila’ singer actually landed his spot on the album? While the two stars are good friends who each seem to really respect one another’s work, this collaboration actually began with a drunk dial.
