Lionel Richie’s having a very good year. At 62, the singer/songwriter shows no signs of retirement – or of aging, but that’s another story. His latest release “Tuskegee” went #1 and has become the year’s top-selling album selling 789,000 copies. While no one has approached Adele’s astonishing total of 3.3 million records sold in the digital era, Richie’s current CD has outsold all three of his previous ones. Maybe it’s because the album has some additional star power – a collection of duets with contemporary country artists. Its guests include Shania Twain, Jennifer Nettles, Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney.
