American blues rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD has released new track ‘Baby Got Gone’ the first track launched from a brand new album ‘Lay It on Down’ out July 21 via Provogue/Mascot Label Group.
“The point of [the] album,” he says, “was that I wanted to put a heavy emphasis on the songs themselves and the writing behind them. I wanted each song to really stand on its own with the songwriting, the music, the words…”
Lay It On Down began when Kenny headed South to write alongside the cream of Nashville. “I’ve been pretty busy over the past several years, between my band and The Rides,” he adds.
“But when I got gaps in my schedule here and there, over the last year-and-a-half, I’d make trips to Nashville to write songs for this new record. Some people I’ve written with my entire career, like Mark Selby and Tia Sillers. Then there were some new people, like Danny Myrick, Dylan Altman and Keith Stegall and my co-producer — Marshall Altman.”
