Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite singer/performer of all-time is Lionel Richie. His music is timeless and incomparable. As a performer Richie doesn’t need dancers and all of the lights. All he needs is that voice and a piano.
As a young man, the world was introduced to Lionel Richie when he was the lead singer of the Commodores and in the early 80’s he decided to go solo and create many more hits.
Lionel’s music is so well liked, he decided to “countrify” his hits and made some of them better on the Tuskegee album. On the album, Richie teamed up with a few of country’s best artists and remade 13 of his and the Commodores’ hits.
Typically, I do a top 10 countdown and leave it at that, but because there are so many hits I have decided to do a top 10 for both The Commodores and Lionel Richie.
A few that didn’t make either list:
Just For You
I Call It Love

One thing Rascal Flatts is not is a boy band so don’t compare them to *NSYNC or the Backstreet Boys. The trio of Joe Don, Jay, and Gary sold over 22.5 million album and more than 28 million digital downloads. They’ve had 15 #1 singles, which led to their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a membership into the Grand Ole Opry. Gary LeVox, lead singer, has a voice that is completely unique. This is one of my favorite groups because their music is soulful and quite meaningful.
I must admit I enjoy being a Flatthead.
Please enjoy the Top 10 song made by Rascal Flatts.

Can you imagine having sixty number one hit songs? George Strait definitely didn’t see that coming. That’s more than Madonna (55), Michael Jackson (43), Elvis (41), and The Beatles (36). He is one of the few people that will ever have as many #1’s equal to their age. In over thirty years in the music business Strait never had to change his style. This cowboy rode away after his final tour this year, but says that he will still put out new music. No matter how much other genres of music influence country music, the country enthusiasts will always want to hear true sounds of George Strait.
These are the Top 10 George Strait songs:
10. Ocean Front Property
9. The Cowboy Rides Away
8. Marina Del Ray
7. Cowboys Like Us
6. Give It All We Got Tonight
