Members of the crossover hit-making band Exile, composed of Steve Goetzman, Marlon Hargis, JP Pennington, Sonny LeMaire, and Les Taylor, have released their first full studio album since the 1990’s – a re-recording of their hit songs through the years. This year, The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame members are celebrating a distinguished career and the 55th Anniversary of the band. The Hits project is available now at www.exile.biz, at their live shows, and will be available soon at additional outlets.

The project, self-produced by the band, coincides with and supports their “No Limit 55th Anniversary Tour,” and was recorded over the past year, between touring dates.

“This is something our fans have been asking for for years,” said band member Marlon Hargis. “It was a pleasure to re-record these hit songs, and we’re very pleased with how the project turned out!”

Hits is released on Exile’s label, Big Horse Records, and contains 11 No.1 hits, spanning the 70s, 80s, and 90s, and four additional top ten hits. The tracks are in the chronological order of the hit songs, and includes a couple of extra surprises.

The longest-running American, self-contained vocal group kicked off 2018 with their “No Limits Tour” and is also celebrating 40 years of their hit song “Kiss You All Over,” which hit No. 1 in 1978 and stayed No.1 for four weeks and charted for 23 weeks. The group has sold over eight million records, including three Gold records and 11 No. 1 hit songs, along with numerous hits on the pop and country charts.
