NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Lionel Richie's career has come full circle. His new album of duets with country music's biggest stars is called "Tuskegee," after his hometown in Alabama. He sings his classic hits like "Say You, Say Me," "Endless Love," and "Dancin' On the Ceiling" with folks like Jason Aldean, Shania Twain and Rascal Flatts.
