Exile has signed with Ontourage Management for exclusive management representation. The band has also signed with The Kinkead Entertainment Agency for booking.

2020 marks the 57th anniversary for the band, which formed in Richmond, Kentucky, in 1963. The band has had hits on both the pop and country charts, achieving 10 No. 1 songs on the country chart alone. They are known for hits including “Kiss You All Over,” “Give Me One More Chance,” and “I Don’t Want to Be a Memory,” to name a few.

“We’ve known Tony for decades, back from when Exile was just another struggling Kentucky band. It’s a real pleasure to finally get to work with someone we’ve respected for years, and more importantly, consider to be a friend!” said Marlon Hargis of Exile. “It’s also great to work with Bob and all the Kinkead staff – good people, doing a wonderful job, particularly helping us through the 2020 Covid-19 disaster!”

“Exile was the first band I promoted when I was a sophomore in high school. Some people and music come into our lives, leave footprints, touch our hearts, and we are never the same. Exile is one of those amazing groups of talented musicians , songwriters and entertainers,” stated Ontourage Management’s Tony Conway. “We look forward to working with them to expand the brand and legacy of Exile that they have created for the past 57 years.”

“My team and I, here at Kinkead Entertainment, have represented Exile since Nov 2019. It has been a great ride lining up all the shows and events throughout the USA, until the COVID-19 virus hit our nation in March. We managed to move most of their dates into 2021. We are excited to get Exile back on the road, and in front of their fans, performing their biggest hits,” shared TKEA’s Bob Kinkead. “Exile will kick-off their tour in January 2021, starting in Texas, pending no more spikes or setbacks with regard to the virus. We are extremely excited to be in business with the Conway Entertainment Group, the new management company for Exile. 2021 looks bright!”
