Tickets are still available to next month's Lionel Richie concert at the Bridgestone Arena. Prices for the "All the Hits All Night Long" tour range from $59 to $150.
The 64-year-old Richie figured out his way around Nashville for his latest album, critically acclaimed "Tuskegee," which included a who's who of country artists.
"The love and just fun times I had was just doing this album was just great and then the town just came out and put their arms around me and I had just the best time. Nashville is near and dear to my heart I gotta tell ya," Richie told Nashville's News 2.
"Tuskegee" is named after the city in Alabama in which Richie was raised.
His Nashville show is set for September 28 at 8 p.m.
