    There's plenty here for country fans of pretty much any ilk.

    It's still gratifying to see how many A-list Nashville stars lined up for guest spots on Tuskegee--Blake! Tim! Shania! Willie!--and to hear how naturally the Alabama native countrifies R&B classics like "Endless Love" and the Jennifer Nettles-assisted "Hello."

    A sleek, sure-footed new country duets album by Lionel Richie.

    Richie and his guests are having such a good time and the songs themselves are so irresistible it's easy (like a Sunday morning) to get caught up in the spirit.

    These collaborations jell because Richie's style is so expansive, musically and emotionally.

    It's not as glossy as the '80s, there are fewer keyboards and more guitars-the sensibility remains the same, so Tuskegee generates a bit of déjà vu: the surroundings are new, yet everything feels familiar.

    Acoustic guitars replace glistening synths, bittersweet steel guitars slide in to provide the patina of rural rootsiness, yet Richie still never really steps away from the polished sheen that characterized his musical heyday.

    The tenth county album of Lionel Richie - which is dedicated to the singer's hometown - is a compilation of fourteen tracks, each of which was recorded in collaboration with other artists. And so we've got sentimental "Angel" on which appears Pixie Lott, lethargic ballad "Endless Love" featuring Shania Twain and Rascal Flatts typical, energetic - "Dancing On The Ceiling". Expand
