While Kenny's musical career has been nothing short of phenomenal, his passion for cars easily matches his passion for guitars. To celebrate the release of LIVE! In Chicago, Roadrunner Records has posted a video of Kenny giving fans an exclusive look into his custom-built 1970 Plymouth Duster.

The brilliant cast of musicians on LIVE! In Chicago is evidence of Kenny's commitment to uniting older and younger generations of bluesmen on one stage. His reverence and awe for blues tradition is only made clearer by listening to the single “I'm a King Bee," a swamp blues song first recorded by the legendary Slim Harpo
