https://smarturl.it/Shemekia-KWS “Hit ‘Em Back” was written at the urging of Shemekia Copeland who asked her manager/lyricist John Hahn to write a song to address divisiveness and anger within the greater blues community. She reached out to Kenny asking if he would write music for the lyrics and join her to record the song. Kenny, came up with the music, demo’d it, and sent it to Shemekia who just days later met them in a Nashville studio along with @Robert Randolph and @Tony Colem.
All proceeds from the “Hit ‘Em Back” will be donated to the Music Maker Relief Foundation, a non-profit whose stated mission is “to preserve the musical traditions of the south by directly supporting musicians who make it, ensuring their voices will not be silenced by poverty and time.”
