Initially, Lionel Richie might not seem like the most likely candidate for a country album, but don't forget that the former Commodore is also the man who penned "Lady," Kenny Rogers' biggest solo single ever—and, as the album title implies, Richie heard his share of country growing up in Alabama in the '50s and '60s. Richie shared the spotlight with Akon and Ne-Yo on his last album, but here he duets with Nashville A-listers old and new, taking his own pop and R&B classics down a country road. Steel guitar and some husky interjections from Jason Aldean don't hurt "Say You, Say Me" a bit, while Willie Nelson ambles into "Easy" like it was written for him. Richie even gets his chance to chime in with Kenny on a revamped "Lady."
