Lionel Richie has a new duets album coming out, and Kenny Chesney pairs up with the music legend on one of the tracks:

Richie fully expected Kenny Chesney to pick the good-timing ‘All Night Long’ to cover, so he was stunned when Kenny expressed his admiration for the ballad ‘My Love.’ Chesney’s adoration was so ardent, “he drunk dialed me at 2:00 AM and said he was going to sing the song to me,” Lionel recalls. He added that Kenny’s mom, who Kenny claimed had never attended one of his recording sessions before, dropped by to hear her baby sing with Lionel.

The album, titled Tuskegee, will be released in March. Pre-order now at Amazon.

Chesney will also duet with Richie at an ACM special the day after the ACM Awards are held. The program will be broadcast at a later date. Read more.
