We still can’t get enough of Lionel Richie’s tenth studio album Tuskegee, so I chose to feature one of the singles that awed the fans especially the ladies. Tuskegee presents reinterpretations of his previously recorded songs. The best part of the album is Richie’s collaborations with different artists that helped him give a new tune to his all-time favorite tracks. Released on March 5, 2012, Tuskegee landed as his third number one album on the Billboard 200. The album’s name was by the way named after Alabama City where Richie was born. He finished his undergraduate degree at Tuskegee Institute.

Stuck on You

“Stuck on You” definitely left a feeling down deep in our souls that we just can’t lose. Lionel Richie did an excellent delivery of the song when he first recorded it in 1984 but recording it with Darius Rucker, oh ladies, I can just imagine how flattered you are! In fact, when you watch the video below, you can see women head over heels while the two renowned artists join together on the stage.

The epic collaboration earned Rucker his first CMA Award in 2009. He was named the New Artist of the Year. Rucker was a pop artist before he signed to Capitol Nashville as a country singer in 2008. His single “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” off his debut album Learn to Live made him the first black artist to reach number one on the Hot Country Songs chart since Charley Pride in 1983.

On the other hand, the duet was Richie’s first nomination for CMA Awards. In an interview, he expressed his utmost pleasure for the nomination. He was thrilled that the country music community embraced his project, hence, making him feel at home. He did not only earn a nomination, but a friend for life in the person of Darius Rucker.

A New Found Friendship

Rucker and Richie met each other once in a bar before they had the recording. They exchanged polite hellos but never really talked. When the two met each other on the studio for the completion of the project, they both shared each other’s musical experiences. Both were impressed with each other’s works, and indeed a new friendship was built.

So here’s the live performance of “Stuck on You” from our favorite artists. Again, ladies, you are free to dance along or scream out loud, just make sure the neighbors won’t be disturbed.
