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,among many other accolades.
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 Fender Musical Instruments Corporation released the guitar that Kenny designed – the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Stratocaster.
