This year marks Exile's 56th year as America's longest running band. On September 30, 1978 the award-winning band, who had initially set out to play small clubs in Richmond, Kentucky in 1963, skyrocketed to world-wide 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. In the early 1980's Exile began to focus on country music. During their run on the country charts, they had 10 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, Engelbert Humperdinck, Huey Lewis, Diamond Rio, Janie Fricke and many more. During this country phase of their career, Exile received 11 nominations including Vocal Group of The Year and Best Instrumental Performance for the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music awards. This ultimate, cross-over band has sold over 8 million records worldwide, with three Gold albums. Exile has lasted longer than most marriages. Artist website: exile.biz.
