In 1963, the year before the Beatles scored their first American hit, a group of kids calling themselves The Exiles climbed onto an outdoor stage in the small midstate town of Richmond, Kentucky and proceeded to make musical history - not just with their songs but with their longevity as well. Forty-six years later, that same band Exile is still rockin' with a mix of original and seminal members. Nations have had shorter life spans. Nowadays, 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.


In 1981 Newton's career exploded into the mainstream with her album Juice, thanks to the enormous hits "Angel of the Morning," "Queen of Hearts, " and #1 country smash hit, "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Knwon)." Delivering tearful, wall-of-sound pop, sprightly country-rock and everything in between with crystalline tone and infectious energy, Newton brought a sparkling authenticity to an era dominated by artifice.Juice went platinum and became an international monster, "The Sweetest Thing" spent 18 weeks in the Top 40, and Newton earned two Grammy nominations for Best Female Vocalist. Since then she has become a Grammy, CMA and Billboard award-winning artist who has multiple platinum and gold albums, ten million records sold and 15 Top 10 hits under her belt.
