On September 30, 1978, the award-winning band that had initially set out to play small clubs in Richmond, Kentucky back in 1963, skyrocketed to worldwide fame with their multi-week chart-topper “Kiss You All Over.”  In fact, it made Billboard’s Year End Hot 100 Singles of 1978 (Top 5) and later placed in Billboard’s “The 50 Sexiest Songs of All Time” (Top 10) category.  The iconic song has been showcased in multiple motion pictures.  

In the early 1980’s, Exile began to focus on country music.  During their run on the country charts Exile had ten number one singles including “I Don’t Want To Be A Memory,” “Give Me One More Chance” and “She’s A Miracle.” The band wrote their own songs, played on all their recordings and also proved to be prolific songwriters composing hits for other artists such as Alabama, Restless Heart, Huey Lewis, Diamond Rio, Janie Fricke and many more.  During this country phase of their career, Exile received eleven nominations including Vocal Group of The Year and Best Instrumental Performance for the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music awards.

The five original Exile members teamed up again in 2008 with J.P. Pennington, Les Taylor, Sonny LeMaire, Marlon Hargis and Steve Goetzman. The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame members continue to perform for legions of fans around the world, and have appeared over 100 times on the Grand Ole Opry.  The ultimate country/pop crossover band has sold over eight million records worldwide including three gold albums.

Must be 21 years of age or older to attend this concert.
