When the 64-year-old showman took the stage at ACL, he showed no signs of slowing down -- just like Stevie Wonder, two years before. Richie's bag of hits -- "Easy," "Dancing on the Ceiling," even a cover of The Commodores' "Brick House" -- ended with a "We Are the World" singalong with no shortage of participation by the 35,000-strong crowd. One for the ACL history books, Richie gave joint headliners Atoms for Peace a run for their money.
