Lionel Richie Releases Preview Of 'Hello' Cover Video With Country Star


Lionel Richie has released a behind the scenes video from the recording sessions of his newly made over classic "Hello" with country star Jennifer Nettles from the band Sugarland.

The track appears on Lionel's upcoming new release Tuskegee, which is due out March 26 and includes collaborations with some of country's biggest names.

In the video, Nettles is seen contributing her vocals to the tune and they both speak on the album's significance. Jennifer is, in fact, a native of Douglas, Georgia, which is just 180 miles from Lionel's home in Tuskegee, Alabama.

"I want to let everybody know that I'm from there, and country is Tuskegee," Lionel told TheBoot.com. "Or should I say rather, my country is Tuskegee. I was born and raised there, it's not just someplace I passed through one day. It just seemed fitting -- a celebration of life."
