BJ Thomas, Exile, Jim Ed Brown and Jeannie Seely, to name a few, appeared at the Grand Ole Opry House this weekend to entertain country music fans on the Friday night version of the Grand Ole Opry.

For Exile, playing the Opry represents a chance to perform near home. The group celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and bass player Sonny LeMaire said tour dates are still pouring in for the "Kiss You All Over" singers. And given the band's golden anniversary, members have spent time working up some commemorative songs.

"It is a killer block of material," said LeMaire, who has played with the group since 1977. "We may be the only band that can legitimately say we have worked with everybody from Aerosmith to George Jones. We've worked up some material to showcase these people that we've worked with — and it's a blast. We are out of the road and having fun."
