EXILE DEBUTS NEW LIVE ALBUM SEPT. 4 AT FRANKLIN THEATRE GALA
NASHVILLE - August 28, 2014 - The band Exile will transform the Franklin Theatre into a veritable festival Thursday evening (Sept. 4) with an array of guest artists and an auction of celebrity swag to celebrate the release of the band's new album, Exile Live at the Franklin Theatre.
The event is designed to raise funds for the Southern Alliance For People and Animal Welfare (SAFPAW), the non-profit organization that helps homeless people face the daily challanges of living in poverty with their pets. All the evening's proceeds will go to this charity.
Already set to share the stage with Exile are harmonica wizard Charlie McCoy and award-winning Christian artist Jason Crabb. An auction of celebrity memorabilia will add to the sparkle by offering autographed items from Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Martina McBride, and Exile, among others.
Other treasures on the auction block include a full-size jukebox and a limited edition Muppets record player from the Crosley Company, signed artwork from Guy Gilchrist, the illustrator of the Muppets and of the Nancy comic strip; recording time at the Blackbird Studios; and tickets and backstge passes to the Grand Ole Opry.
Hosting the glittering event-which is set to get underway at 8 p.m.-will be the Great American Country personality Nan Kelly.
Exile Live At The Franklin Theatre was recorded March 16, 2013 at the historic site in front of an audience of long-time Exile fans and music industry friends.
Now in its 51st year of touring and recording, Exile first rocked the music world in 1978 with its international pop hit, "Kiss You All Over." Subsequently working in the country music vein, the Kentucky-birthed band scored 10 Number 1 classics over a four-year period, among them "Woke Up In Love," "Give Me One More Chance," "Crazy For Your Love," "It'll Be Me," and "I Can't Get Close Enough."
Last year, Exile was inducte into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in a class that also included Steven Curtis Chapman, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Hilltoppers, and the late Grand Ole Opry star, Skeeter Davis.
The Franklin Theatre is located at 419 Main St., Franklin, TN. Tickets are available at the theater box office and online at www.franklintheatre.com for $30, $35, and $40.
