This is not a test, y’all. This is the Kenny Wayne Shepherd in your face with the most rollicking country-infused rock track you’ve heard in a long time.
It’s been almost twenty years since the release of the Louisiana native’s signature song “Blue on Black,” and in that time, he’s traveled the world and played with blues and rock legends, including B.B. King, the Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Eagles, all the while having garnered five Grammy nominations and seven No. 1 blues albums.
His newest release “Baby Got Gone” brings the blues-rock staple back to a more country side of life, seamlessly fusing the already blurred lines of blues and Southern rock. The song tells the tale of a beauty with a gypsy heart who can’t be tamed or tied down. It’s just about the perfect summer soundtrack for Southern rock enthusiasts and country fans alike.
“Baby Got Gone” is from Shepherd’s new album, Lay It on Down, which is due later this summer.
