Exile will return to Franklin Theatre for Dec. 17 performance

Country rockers Exile will celebrate the Christmas season with a new album, Wrapped Up In Your Arms for Christmas, as well as a concert Thursday, Dec. 17 at the historic Franklin Theatre which will feature new holiday music and the band’s decades of hits.


After celebrating more than 50 years as a group, Exile will release their first Christmas album in late-November. “We’ve been talking about doing a Christmas album for years and we’re excited that we finally have been able to reach that goal,” said keyboardist Marlon Hargis.

Exile’s CD release concert will benefit the Southern Alliance for People and Animal Welfare (SAFPAW), a non-profit organization in middle Tennessee helping the homeless community face the daily challenges of living in poverty with their pets.

This will be the second year in a row that Exile has performed at the Franklin Theatre to benefit the organization. They have generously donated their time and talent to help raise funds and awareness for the mission of SAFPAW. In addition to the concert, there will be a silent auction featuring autographed memorabilia and hand written lyrics by Sonny Lemaire and Pat Boone.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of Exile and the awareness and financial support this event provides for the important work of SAFPAW in Middle Tennessee,” said Lee Ann Dichtel, SAFPAW Chairman of the Board. “This is the second year for this great event and it truly will be a great night of entertainment for a great cause!”

Exile has a history with the historic venue. The band recorded a live album at the Franklin Theatre, released last year, and a DVD They are excited to do the event again this year after successfully raising thousands of dollars last year for SAFPAW.
