EXILE At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Founded in Richmond, Kentucky in 1963 by a group of high school students, The Exiles began playing local clubs, before touring with Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars as a backup to major rock artists and as an opening act. In 1973, the band shortened their name to just “Exile” and released their debut album. Although the singles were met with little success and it would be another five years before they released a full-length follow-up album, the group did eventually find their niche and were met with success. Their 1977 single “Try It On” became a minor hit and was followed by their first Number One hit, “Kiss You All Over,” which soared to the top of the U.S. charts.
