Lionel Richie Up For Best Country Album at American Music Awards

It's the 40th anniversary of the American Music Awards, a show started by Dick Clark as an alternative to the Grammys in 1973. The difference between the two awards is that the Grammys are voted on by industry members where the AMA's are voted by the people.

As always, the AMA's salute the biggest selling artists in a variety of genres and, usually, the fans pick the flavor of the moment at the time of voting. That's why it is very rare for a veteran artist to make the cut.

This year, Lionel Richie, actually made the cut, in the country category, for his smash album Tuskeegee.

Overall, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna lead the nominations with four each while Drake, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, One Direction and Usher have three each and Carrie Underwood, Chris Brown, fun., Gotye, J.Cole, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Bryan and Pitbull each have two.

The awards will be given out on November 18 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and broadcast on ABC.
