Listen to “Gonna Hurt Like Hell” feat. Kenny Wayne Shepherd here:
“When I was trying to figure out what to write for Kenny Wayne to record with us ,I just figured it all comes back to the blues and let’s both of us go back to our roots. Musically it’s where we both come from. So this is a straight-ahead shuffle and I think he and I really complement each other in our playing. This cut was really fun to record , and I think it’s smokin’ !!”
Walter Trout is the beating heart of the modern blues rock scene. Respected by the old guard. Revered by the young guns. Adored by the fans who shake his hand after the show each night. After five decades in the game, Trout is a talismanic figure and the glue that bonds the blues community together, at a time when the wider world has never been so divided. He’s also the only artist with the vision, talent and star-studded address book to pull off a project on the scale of We’re All In This Together. “It was quite a piece of work to get this record together,” he admits. “But I guess I have a lot of friends, y’know…?”
