Kenny Wayne Shepherd to release Live In Chicago on September 28

Kenny Wayne Shepherd has made quite a name for himself since releasing his first album, Ledbetter Heights, at the age of 16.  Now, a seasoned veteran and all-out guitar hero, Shepherd is preparing to release a live album, Live In Chicago, on September 28 on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records.

Recorded in Chicago’s House of Blues during the critically acclaimed 10 Days Out: Blues From The Backroads tour, Live in Chicago showcases Kenny and his band, Noah Hunt, Chris Layton, Scott Nelson and Riley Osbourn, along with special guests, Hubert Sumlin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Buddy Flett, Bryan Lee and Tommy Shannon (of Double Trouble).

Though an illness nearly kept Kenny from performing that night, his heartfelt commitment to the music (and quite a lot of adrenaline) ensured that he took the stage, sharing with the audience one of the most spectacular performances of his career, and one that fans can now hear on Live in Chicago.

Here is a video from another live performance with Shepherd performing Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child”.

Kenny has already earned two platinum albums and one gold album, six Top 10 singles. Released in 1997, Trouble Is… holds the distinction of being the longest running album on the Billboard Blues Charts, hitting the 2 year mark.  Over the course of his career, Shepherd has received four Grammy nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville H. Gibson Awards, the Blues Foundation’s “Keeping the Blues Alive” award and a Blues Music Award.  In 2008, Fender released the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Signature Series Stratocaster.

2007’s CD/DVD 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads was nominated for two Grammy Awards, aired on PBS television nationwide and has been certified RIAA Gold as a Long Form Video.
