25 years later, Lionel Richie’s dancing on the ceiling again – but this time, he's in cowboy boots. Today: A Soundcheck Smackdown about the pop star’s new album of his greatest hits gone country, called “Tuskegee.” Plus: A look at other artists, from Bing Crosby to Bon Jovi, who’ve dabbled in twang. And: A new musical production of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” is set in the Wild West. Director Arin Arbus and the cast join us for a live performance.
