Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s new video continues his blues-based guitar legacy.  Shepherd’s new, ‘Best of Times’ is a socio-political snapshot of the world we live in.  Trouble and hard times are buoyed by music.  The guitar slinger and his band are seen performing in a garage as scenes from everyday life are intercut.  ‘Best of Times’ is the first single from his new release ‘Dirt on My Diamonds Vol.1’. Recorded at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, ‘Dirt On My Diamonds, Vol. 1’ chronicles Shepherd’s journey of musical evolution, touching on stories of loss, redemption, and memorable melodies, all crafted by an elite team of songwriters. As Shepherd himself describes it, “Every record I make is a moment in time. And this is a really special moment.” ‘Dirt on My Diamonds Vol. 1’ will be available from Provogue Records on 7th November 2023. Shepard and his band will be touring extensively throughout the US in 2024, no word on UK dates just yet.
