EXILE TO PERFORM AT 4th ANNUAL ‘THE STARS GO BLUE’ CONCERT
WITH A SPECIAL APPEARANCE BY TRACE ADKINS

PROCEEDS BENEFIT THE COLON CANCER ALLIANCE’S BLUE NOTE FUND
WHICH AIDS PATIENTS IN NEED OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE


NASHVILLE, TENN. (February 2, 2012) – Iconic country/pop band Exile will perform on the 4th annual The Stars Go Blue benefit concert, Tuesday, March 6, 7:00 pm at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum in Nashville. There will be a special appearance by Trace Adkins and proceeds from the event benefit the Blue Note Fund, a Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) program designed to provide financial assistance to colon cancer patients in need.

The concert event and Blue Note Fund are the brainchild of Grammy-nominated producer, artist and musician Charlie Kelley who was diagnosed with colon cancer after a routine screening at age 40. Within months of successful surgery and treatment, Kelley began working to raise awareness about the prevention and treatment of the disease as well as funding for those going through treatment. He joined the board of the CCA and created the Blue Note Fund - an off shoot of The Stars Go Blue concert event - which puts money directly into the pockets of those in treatment for colon cancer. "When you're fighting cancer, the last thing you want to think about is a bill you can't pay,” says Kelley. “The Blue Note Fund is our way to help others who are going through tough emotional and financial times.” To date the fund has awarded $125,000 to 400 patients in need.

Adkins, a longtime fan of the band Exile, recently got together with the group to re-record one of their signature No. 1 hits, “Kiss You All Over,” for Hit Exchange, a television special created in part by Kelley, that aired on Great American Country. “It’s more than obvious that Trace and Exile have a mutual respect and chemistry and that certainly translates to the stage,” Kelley said. “I’m thrilled that Exile and Trace are generously giving their time and talents to our fourth concert event.”

Tickets for The Stars Go Blue are $100.00 per person and include the intimate concert at the Hall of Fame’s Ford Theater, a VIP cocktail reception and auction after the concert. For tickets or more information, log on to www.bluenotefund.org. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is located at 222 5th Ave. S. in downtown Nashville. Sponsors of the event include Lamar Brothers Productions, Nagy Guitars, Amgen and Genentech.

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
