The Arkansas State University Convocation Center is proud to present a night of entertainment that dates back to 1963.  On Friday, September 29 Kentucky’s own Exile will bring their timeless talents to the stage at The Convo.  Bringing a music career that has spanned over four decades, Exile is still performing at a high level and entertaining their audience.  The band’s mantra to this day is “It’s about the people who bought the tickets.  Never forget your audience.”  Something the late great Dick Clark shared with the band when they were opening his Caravan of Stars show.

A group that not only spans time, but music as well charting country and pop #1 singles over the years.  Exile still brings energy and passion to each performance and headlines a night of stars.

Being born the daughter of a country star in Nashville, Lorrie Morgan has been in the spotlight of country music for her entire life.  In 1984 she became the youngest singer ever to join the Grand Ole Opry.  Morgan has had multiple #1 singles and was voted as the Female Vocalist of the Year in 1994 by TNN’s Music City News Awards.  An honor she would win three more times in the 90’s.  She continues to produce new music and her latest full album, her fourteenth, was released in 2016. 

Darryl Worley first signed with DreamWorks Records in 1999 and released four albums for the label.  In total, he has released six full albums with his most recent in 2009.  Over the years he had three #1 singles including I Miss My Friend, Have You Forgotten and Awful, Beautiful Life.

Rounding out the evening is Kree Harrison.  Harrison as best known for her Season 12 Runner Up performance on American Idol.  The show aired on May 16, 2013.  She traveled with the American Idols Live! Tour in 2013 after the show.  Her debut album was released on July 8, 2016.
