I had only learned just about a month ago that Lionel Richie wrote "Lady" which blew my mind that I didn't know that before, plus in the back of my mind I was getting confused about who had sang which song between them since their ballads have a very similar structure - now I know why!

As I went down that rabbit hole, I discovered that Rogers and Richie were lifelong friends after "Lady", and I started watching numerous videos of them carrying on together though the years. Richie gave Rogers credit for jump-starting his solo career.
The 2012 version of "Lady" that he sang as a country remake with Lionel Richie is even better than the original, made even more poignant with Roger's aged voice , and with Lionel's "thank you" at the end - LINK
In fact, I was playing the above song on Spotify just yesterday. I'm not a country fan, but I'm really bummed by this.
