An Interview with JP Pennington of the Award-Winning Band, EXILE By Holly Dye

Holly Dye

Holly: It is great to have an opportunity to talk with you about the reunion of Exile and the upcoming opportunity for you to return to Lexington to play for a great cause.

Many people may not realize the historical significance this event has for you and the band. Your start as Exile began in the heart of the bluegrass and the collective decision to once again begin performing as Exile was made in Lexington just over one year ago. What does it mean to you to have the opportunity to come home again?

JP Pennington:

 

You know, its odd that Kentucky is one of the places we play the least. In fact, I live only about 15 minutes from the Singletary Center. Crazy, but its always great to come back and play here. It gives a chance to see old friends as well as showing the hometown folks that weve hopefully gained a step or two since they saw us last.

Holly: You have mentioned in past interviews that issues related to childrens issues and substance abuse are ones close to your heart. Do you mind sharing a bit about the National Drug Endangered Children Training and Advocacy Center and what about this organization’s mission spoke to you?

COUNTRY MUSIC LOSES ANOTHER ICON FERLIN HUSKY PASSES AT 85 YEAR OLD

Ferlin Husky

The world of music has lost another legendary icon. Ferlin Husky has passed away at the age of 85 years old. Ferlin as we all know, had been battling health issues for several years. His Master came to bring him home.

Ferlin was member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. As an entertainer, there were none better, and his list of hit songs included “GONE-WINGS OF A DOVE-I FEEL BETTER ALL OVER,” and so many more. Our industry will sadly miss his high-kicking show stopping music. I have been honored to know him as a great friend and human being.

Please keep Ferlin’s family in your thoughts and prayers during the time of sorrow in their life’s at this great loss.
MAY FERLIN REST IN PEACE AS HE TRAVELS ON THE WINGS OF A DOVE INTO THE HEAVENLY HOME OF HIS BLESSED SAVIOR. Continue reading COUNTRY MUSIC LOSES ANOTHER ICON FERLIN HUSKY PASSES AT 85 YEAR OLD
