    Lionel Richie was an '80s pop icon, but he's gone country! Richie recently sat down with Yahoo! Music's Ram Country to discuss his new duets album Tuskegee, a compilation of country remakes with country superstars like Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton. In this exclusive Ram Country interview, Richie showcases his strong ties to the south and explains why Nashville natives have the perfect work/life balance.

    "I like to record in the evening and they're finished by 1 or 2 in the afternoon because they have to go fishing and they have to be home for dinner. And you maintain this balance that's so perfect, that if we could get that in California we would have the divorce rate down by half at least," Richie, who is the dad of uber-fashionable Nicole Richie, said.

    What a life, Lionel! We love you and we love this interview.
