Is Lionel Richie returning to Country?
Pop music icon Lionel Richie has revealed that he’s planning a return to country music, nearly seven years after his last country project became a huge hit.
Richie was on hand to present the trophy for Entertainer of the Year at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville during the 2018 CMA Awards on Wednesday night, November 14th, and in a red carpet interview, he told Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper that he’s “about to make that move right now.”
Richie says he’s had many questions since as to whether he might be interested in doing more.
“They keep asking me over and over again … A lot of times, people try to make up something to make it happen,” he shares. “But I’m getting it from country radio: ‘When are you gonna do it?’ So let’s not play around. Keep your ears open. It’s gonna be something surprising.”
