Lionel Richie Sells 20,000 CDs On Home Shopping Network

Lionel Richie has gone country, and it’s paying off with CD sales from an unexpected source.  Richie did a one-hour concert on the Home Shopping Network last night, and moved an amazing 20,000 copies of his new CD Tuskogee in the process.  The album, featuring Richie doing country-themed duet versions of his biggest hits, features the first new recording from Shania Twain in seven years.  Richie had been asked for years to try a country record, but only found the courage to try it this year.
