Alternative rock/metal band Sevendust is back in the recording studio, and lead singer Lajon Witherspoon proudly wore a Jayhawk during a couple days of recording. It turns out Witherspoon’s wife, Ashley Meyer Witherspoon, grew up in Baldwin City and later attended Lawrence Free State High School. His mother-in-law sent him the shirt.
” I wear KU apparel here and there,” he says. “I get a lot of questions about the Jayhawk. I go all over the world.”
Witherspoon and his family now live in Overland Park. The recording session took him away from home for several weeks.
“I was missing the family,” he says, “so I put it on.”
Below is a video from one of the days Witherspoon wore his KU gear.
