Kenny Wayne Shepherd has a lot going on. between concerts, family, and getting high-powered muscle cars delivered to his house, his plate is full!

I ran into Kenny a few weeks back in Nashville. I posted about that trip and a little about running into Kenny, here.

Onto what Kenny has going on. He’ll be playing at the Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts in Detroit on May 17th. For tickets, click here.

Kenny doesn’t always hang out in Nashville, his home, but he did a few weeks back. I ran into him two nights in a row, at two comedy shows, so we talked about going to those shows.

As far as his shows go, he’s always playing somewhere. I asked him the longest he’d gone without playing, and the answer was pretty easy, during the pandemic.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd Has Lots Of Music In The Can

He told me he already has four albums in the can! He says he’s ready for the record label to ask him for new music. “Thankfully because I have all this material kind of stocked up, I haven’t been under the gun to write lately, and that’s kind of the point.” He went on to say that he felt like he was constantly under pressure to write, and now he’s relieved of that with these albums ready to go.

We talked about his monster hit “Blue On Black” and the latest cover of it from Five Finger Death Punch, Brian May, and Brantley Gilbert. He says he thinks a country artist could make a hit out of that song as well.

Kenny Wayne On Jimi Hendrix

He’ll be heading out on the Hendrix Experience this fall with some great guitarists. He said the family of Jimi loves it. He’s been a part of this since it became a thing in Seattle. “I’ve done a lot of Hendrix songs over the years and I feel that I do them justice.”

Now, onto cars. He’s a huge car guy, as am I. When I saw him a few weeks back, he was waiting for the arrival of his latest muscle car. Well, it came, and it sounds insane!

He got a Dodge Demon 170 1170HP. He did the “Jailbreak” program, with a one-of-kind paint job. He said there’s a little more to it which we’ll find out about soon.

Always great to talk with Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
