Lionel Richie’s Album Hits Number 1
The former Comodore’s country collaboration album revisits some of his greatest hits with help from Willie Nelson (“Easy Like Sunday Morning), Kenny Chesney (“My Love”), Rascal Flatts (“Dancing on the Ceiling”) and Shania Twain (“Endless Love”).
This is Richie’s third Number 1 album and his first since 1986′s Dancing on the Ceiling. Sales for Tuskegeesurged after Lionel Richie & Friends in Concert aired on CBS April 13.
With the new hit record and a net worth said to be in the hundreds of millions, Richie probably won’t be staying up all night long worrying about his unpaid tax bill of just over a million bucks. TMZ.com reported the IRS has filed a lien of $1.1 million - $1,130,609.11 to be exact — against the singer. There’s no word yet on the alleged matter from Richie’s reps.
