CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

Born in the small town of Quincy, Florida, Billy Dean started his music career at the age of eight, singing with his father’s band, the Country Rocks. After touring the Gulf Coast circuit in his late teens and early twenties, Billy’s first big break came in 1988 when he won Best Male Vocalist on Star Search, hosted by Ed McMahon.  His success on the show led to signing with Columbia Records and the release of his debut album, “Young Man,” in 1990. Buoyed by the singles “Only Here for a Little While” and “Somewhere in My Broken Heart,” that early album became Billy’s first of many gold records.

His second and third albums, “Billy Dean” and “Fire in the Dark,” were also certified as gold records and featured the Billboard-charting singles, “You Don’t Count the Cost,” “Only the Wind,” “Billy the Kid,” “If There Hadn’t Been You,” “Tryin’ to Find a Fire in the Dark,” “I Wanna Take Care of You,” “I’m Not Built That Way” and more.

Over the course of his 25+ year career, Billy has released 11 albums and has been recognized with several awards and nominations.  In 1992, he was nominated for a Grammy for Song of the Year for “Somewhere in My Broken Heart,” which went on to win Song of the Year at the American Country Music Awards. That same year, Billy was named Top New Male Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music awards and nominated by the Country Music Association for the Horizon Award.  Four years later, Billy won a Grammy for Amazing Grace, A Country Tribute to Gospel, an album featuring Martina McBride, Allison Krauss, the Charlie Daniels Band and others.

A modern-day American Troubadour, Billy Dean has performed and toured with some of the industry’s biggest country music stars including the Judds, Kenny Rogers, Clint Black, Alan Jackson, Wynonna Judd and others.

After making a home in Nashville for decades, Billy has returned to his Florida roots and now lives in Quincy with his wife, Stephanie.  Billy continues to perform and write – doing what he does best – telling the stories that have become the soundtrack of our lives.

On September 30, 1978, the award-winning band that had initially set out to play small clubs in Richmond, Kentucky back in 1963, skyrocketed to worldwide fame with their multi-week chart-topper “Kiss You All Over.”  In fact, it made Billboard’s Year End Hot 100 Singles of 1978 (Top 5) and later placed in Billboard’s “The 50 Sexiest Songs of All Time” (Top 10) category.  The iconic song has been showcased in multiple motion pictures.

In the early 1980’s, Exile began to focus on country music.  During their run on the country charts Exile had ten number one singles including “I Don’t Want To Be A Memory,” “Give Me One More Chance” and “She’s A Miracle.” The band wrote their own songs, played on all their recordings and also proved to be prolific songwriters composing hits for other artists such as Alabama, Restless Heart, Huey Lewis, Diamond Rio, Janie Fricke and many more.  During this country phase of their career, Exile received eleven nominations including Vocal Group of The Year and Best Instrumental Performance for the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music awards.

The five original Exile members teamed up again in 2008 with J.P. Pennington, Les Taylor, Sonny LeMaire, Marlon Hargis and Steve Goetzman. The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame members continue to perform for legions of fans around the world, and have appeared over 100 times on the Grand Ole Opry.  The ultimate country/pop crossover band has sold over eight million records worldwide including three gold albums.
