Lionel wanted to meet each artist on the album, he wanted the songs to be theirs and he would join.

He loved Shania's trick "I can't' sing" She talked about not recording in 7 years. He told the story. "But your Lionel Richie, and your Shania Twain". He talked about how serious she was about having a problem and how he just let her break the ice and got comfortable with singing.

Diana was delicate, Shania walked in with a cowboy hat and a guitar..lol He talked about how Shania albums have a meat to them, they customized the song to Shania's style. They turned the original ballad into a bouncy country tune.

They played the tune..

"Does that song sound like someone who can't sing" She sang both parts, she was so confident I was sweating bullets". She sang the notes she remembered from both parts of the song. She had me going"

He plans on taking the album around the world, sounds like there will be some sort of tour with it. I hope he pops in to Shania's first show in Vegas, how great would that be.

Wow Dancing on the Ceiling is interesting with Rascal Flatts. That would have been a good song to do with Shania too.

I hope I'll be proved wrong. I'm still looking forward to her performance in Los Vegas. I think she will bring the house down.


Haha.

You don't need to "feel for Shania."

She had nothing to do with the video. It's not her song or video. I'm sure she didn't have much to contribute other than maybe where the video was shot.

I agree we don't need to worry about Shania. She's doing fine. Thanks for all the new updates.

It took months for superstar Shania Twain to convince herself that her voice was strong enough and recovered sufficiently to take on a residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace starting Dec. 1. Now we’re learning that singer Lionel Richie, who headlines here this weekend, had a lot to do with her winning back her vocal confidence.

The unexpected duo have brought his hit “Endless Love” back to life, a No. 1 smash he recorded in 1981 with Diana Ross for the Brooke Shields film of the same name. Thanks to YouTube, here’s a sneak preview of her resurrected talents and his April 2 “Friends” tribute concert at MGM Grand Garden Arena during the 47th Academy of Country Music Awards weekend.

The video is not only uniquely beautiful but it also provides an intimate glimpse of her Bahamas beachfront home where she is already rehearsing for the Caesars residency. The story of how Lionel wooed Shania to sing again and join him for his new duets album “Tuskegee” out today is on this YouTube clip from the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Lionel Richie was on the Tonight show on Tuesday. there was a brief interview about his upbringing and how he got started in music with the Commodores as the opening act for the Jackson Five. then he sang Say You, Say Me duet with Jason Aldean. Lionel was great but Jason Aldean was "dead weight."

I know she's busy, but I was hoping Shania would do some promotion with Lionel for the song. I guess Vegas is going to be the first time she gets back on stage!

I see there are many sweepstakes going on with Tuskegee, including CMT, SiriusXM, etc. But this one is in the American Experience Magazine that comes with my Saturday paper. It says you can win a framed lyric sheet autographed by Lionel Richie, plus a copy of the CD. There are also 75 runner up prizes. Here is the link: http://www.americanprofile.com/arti...at-sweepstakes/. It is just down a short way on the right side of the page.

Rumor has it Shania won't be at the ACMs, but may be at the taping for Lionel's special.

Mmm, I read that a LV newspaper reported on Monday that she may be a last-minute surprise at the ACMs... we'll see.
Anyway, country music world is indeed changing, and I think for the worse. No nomination for the big female names. Reba, who's hosting, hasn't a nomination at all, even with a #1 single and two incredibly successful tours last year.

Since I moved to Texas, I have been listening more and more to our local country artists, instead of the ones coming out of Nashville. Shania's style would fit right in.
