Kenny Wayne Shepherd


Saturday, June 28, 2014 at 8 P.M.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd has lived more than half of his life in the spotlight. At the age of 16, he was signed to a major record label. While a senior in high school, he recorded his first album and while most of his classmates were looking for a part time summer job after graduation, Kenny was embarking on a world tour. Now, twenty years later, he has sold millions of albums worldwide, received five Grammy nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville H. Gibson Awards, the Blues Foundation’s Keeping The Blues Alive Award, and two Blues Music Awards among many other accolades. He has had six No. 1 blues albums and a string of No. 1 mainstream rock singles and his cd and film project, 10 Days Out; Blues From The Backroads, not only received critical acclaim, but was also the # 1 selling Blues Album of the Year in 2007. He is widely considered to be one of the best blues/rock guitarists (James Brown once referred to him as “one of the wonders of the world”) and on September 1, 2008, Fender Musical Instruments Corporation released the guitar that Kenny designed – the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Stratocaster®.
Kenny has been featured on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Craig Ferguson and many other television shows. He has been featured in Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Maxim Magazine, Blender, Spin, USA Today and a host of other publications.
His musical career has been nothing short of phenomenal.
In 2007, Kenny released his most ambitious project to date. A full-length feature film documentary with an accompanying live album entitled 10 Days Out: Blues From The Backroads. The film follows Kenny and his friends, Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon (Double Trouble) and Noah Hunt embarking on a ten day trek into the heart of America visiting blues veterans in their homes, backyards and local juke joints. The film and CD features performances with some of the most renowned blues artists of all time, including B.B. King, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Hubert Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins and Honeyboy Edwards along with some of the blues lesser known, but towering talents. The CD/DVD earned him 2 more Grammy Nominations, The Blues Foundation’s “Keeping The Blues Alive Award, a Blues Music Award (formerly The W.C. Handy Award) and was Billboard’s # 1 selling Blues Album of the Year. The DVD was certified Platinum by the RIAA.
How I Go, Kenny’s most recent studio album, was released in 2011 and also debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart. The record features the singles “Never Lookin’ Back” and “Come On Over”. A year and a half long world tour took Kenny and the band to Europe twice, Australia, Canada and all over the U.S.
