"Nothing Short Of Phenomenal"

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.

2010 saw the release of Live! In Chicago.  The long awaited live record his fans had been waiting for did not disappoint – debuting at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart.  This astonishing live record was recorded at The House of Blues in Chicago during the Legends Tour and received yet another Grammy nomination.  The record features Kenny and his band live in concert and has featured performances with some of the legends featured in the film, such as Hubert Sumlin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Bryan Lee and Buddy Flett.

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.
