Lionel Richie's Tuskegee Goes Platinum
"This album continues to amaze me and I am so grateful for all that it has accomplished," Richie says. "Just when I think it couldn't get any bigger, Tuskegee reaches a new level of success. When I came up with the idea for Tuskegee, I didn't want to be confined by boundaries of age, genre or demographics. I am thrilled with how well this album has been received by people from all walks of life. It is truly living up to the vision we had when we created it."
The country duets album, which held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 for two consecutive weeks, sits at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart for the fourth week since its March 26 release.
Tuskegee is the best-selling country album of 2012 and the first country album in more than a year to spend two consecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200.
