Kenny Wayne Shepherd

DERRY, NH – Tickets are on sale for the Aug. 20 Kenny Wayne Shepherd show at Tupelo Music Hall in support of his upcoming release, “Lay It On Down,” due out Aug. 4.  

“I’m proud of the album we have delivered to the fans and I think they’ll be excited by what they hear,” says Shepherd. “The band we’ve assembled did a fantastic job bringing these songs to life and conveying the musical message to the listener. Now we are looking forward to bringing this new music to the live show to watch it develop even more.”
Shepherd will celebrate the album’s release with a U.S. tour that kicks off August 9 in Westbury, NY, and makes its way to the Tupelo Aug. 20 for a one-night stand.  Tickets are $68-88 and can be purchased here.

“Lay It On Down” finds Shepherd two decades into a recording career that began when he was 16. Shepherd has sold millions of albums worldwide and, in addition to his five Grammy nominations, he has won two Billboard Music Awards, a pair of Orville H. Gibson awards, the Blues Foundation’s Keeping The Blues Alive award and two Blues Music awards. He’s had six No. 1 blues albums and a string of No. 1 mainstream rock singles, and his acclaimed documentary project 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads was the top-selling blues album of 2007. Shepherd’s last release, 2014’s Goin’ Home (Concord Records), debuted at  No. 25 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and spent several weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Blues chart.
