Exile was originally founded in Richmond, Kentucky by J.P. Pennington. The group began as The Exile but was shortened to Exile in 1973, consisting of leader/guitarist Pennington, lead singer Jimmy Stokley, keyboardist Buzz Cornelison, bassist Kenny Weir, and drummer Bob Jones. In 1978 the Pop Rock hit song “Kiss You All Over” took Exile’s career to an all new level. In 1983, the band changed their genre to country music group and had number one songs like “Woke Up in Love”, “I Don’t Want to Be a Memory”, “Give Me One More Chance”, “Crazy For Your Love”, “She’s a Miracle”, “Hang On to Your Heart”, “I Could Get Used to You”, “It’ll Be Me”, “She’s Too Good to Be True” and “I Can’t Get Close Enough”.
Exile regrouped in 1978 and became a country band consisting of J.P. Pennington (guitar, lead vocals), Les Taylor (guitar, vocals), Sonny LeMaire (bass, vocals), Marlon Hargis (keyboards) and Steve Goetzman and Gary Freeman (drums). Exile founder J.P. Pennington co-wrote two hit songs with Sonny LeMaire performed by Alabama “The Closer You Get” and “Take Me Down”.
Blue Sky Riders consist of Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman and Gary Burr all sing lead with a three part harmony that only comes once in a lifetime. A new country band touring with Kenny Loggins on his summer tour as they continue to work on an ablum’s worth of songs.
