If you're a fan of the blues, Shreveport or Kenny Wayne Shepherd, you better get excited. Kenny Wayne and the Kenny Wayne Shepherd band have a new album on the way.

"The Traveler" will be hitting shelves on May 31st. BUT, if you're a big big fan, right now on KWS' website, you can get something pretty awesome. If you pre-order the album right now through Kenny Wayne, Kenny will autograph the thing for you and guarantee you'll have it by the May 31st release date. Which is kinda awesome. You can buy a copy of the album here. 

And, even better than that, to support the album this summer, Kenny will be hitting the road with Blues Legend Buddy Guy.

Plus, on top of all that awesomeness, Kenny is involved in a pretty cool project at the moment. Kenny has teamed up with Metal band Five Finger Death Punch, Brian May from Queen, and country artist Brantley Gilbert to raise money for Veterans.

According to the press release:

The multi-platinum rock group FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has teamed up with the legendary BRIAN MAY of QUEEN and two of the biggest names in country and blues rock, BRANTLEY GILBERT and KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD to record a special version of the song “Blue On Black” mixed by Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain, Disturbed). Titans in each of their respective genres, the artists came together to merge country and mainstream rock to re-create the classic song originally recorded and co-written by SHEPHERD. Taking Country Rock to the next level, “Blue On Black” is out today worldwide via Prospect Park (North America) and Eleven Seven Music (ex. North America). The song is available HERE and the artists also premiered an official music video HERE for “Blue On Black” showing the creation of the song.

 The artists and their respective labels are donating all proceeds from the collaboration version of  “Blue On Black” to the GARY SINISE FOUNDATION which honors America’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.

Our boy Kenny has a LOT of cool stuff going on.
