Lionel Richie‘s new album Tuskegee could give the veteran star his best debut in the Soundscan era, which began in 1991, as well as his highest charting disc since 1986’s Dancing on the Ceiling. Billboard reports that the album is headed for a #2 debut on the overall albums chart, in the range of 125 to 150,000 copies sold.
Of course, Tuskegee features Lionel singing his biggest hits with country stars like Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney and Rascal Flatts.
He’ll continue promoting Tuskegee with a performance on Sunday night’s ACM Awards on CBS with Blake Shelton.
Next week, Lionel Richie teams up with Billy Currington to perform their duet from the album, “Just for You,” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday. They’ll also sing it on CBS’s The Talk on Thursday.
