Classic rockers turned country rebels – Exile is reunited and stirring up some musically entertaining madness … just like they did 40 years ago.
In 1978, Exile reached their pop peak with #1 single “Kiss You All Over,” but it was their shift to country music that brought the most success. With six Country Music Association nominations, it’s safe to say the shift was a success. The band topped the country charts with numerous #1 hits including “Woke Up in Love,” “Give Me One More Chance,” “Crazy For Your Love,” “She’s a Miracle,” “Hang On to Your Heart,” “I Could Get Used to You,” “She’s Too Good to Be True” and the list goes on.
These days, J. P. Pennington, Les Taylor, Sonny LeMaire, Marlon Hargis and Steve Goetzman can look back on a career arc that embraces 11 No. 1 country and pop hits, two gold albums and fans by the hundreds of thousands. Best of all, Exile is still touring, and continues to create and record brilliant new music.
After 40 years, they certainly know what they’re doing. And the new crowds they’ve attracted know it, too.
