Cee Lo Green has come over all Howlin’ Wolf on ‘Walkin’ Blues’, a track from the Footloose soundtrack. It’s a collaboration with Louisiana-based guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, who explains:
It was a pleasure collaborating with Cee Lo. I enjoyed it because it gave me a chance to strip things down and play some basic Mississippi Delta slide guitar, while Cee Lo delivered a very authentic Blues vocal. His diversity as an artist is apparent on this track.
