2007 - 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads

10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads is the fifth studio album from American blues band Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. This documentary film was directed by Noble Jones and produced by Phillipa Davis. It was Executive Produced by Kelly Norris Sarno, Devin Sarno and Ken Shepherd. 10 Days Out was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video at the 50th Grammy Awards and won the 2008 Keeping the Blues Alive Award under the category of Film, Television or Video.

The documentary portion of the album features a 10-day venture of Shepherd meeting blues pioneers with the intent of spotlighting veterans of the music genre.
