''When I wrote the song for Kenny, I called my lawyer and said: 'If I put my voice on this it's going to be a smash, I want it.' My lawyer said: 'If you give it to Kenny, it will be bigger than you ever thought.' Now this was true. What I did not realize was that not only did I have my crowd, I picked up all of Kenny's following too. And that happened to be the rest of the world." - Lionel Richie
''The idea was that Lionel would come from R&B and I'd come from country, and we'd meet somewhere in pop. ''Lady'' is one of those very special songs that comes along every so often. I love songs that are female orientated and that's the market I wanna get.'' - Kenny Rogers
