New artist and guitar slinger Jedd Hughes, whose debut single, "High Lonesome" is climbing the charts, was invited to take part in Eric Clapton's "Crossroads Guitar Festival" this weekend in Dallas. He'll be performing as part of the VIP artist reception Friday, June 4. Jedd will also be at the Picker's Clinic on Sunday with Marty Stuart, James Burton (Elvis' lead guitar player) and Doyle Dykes. Jedd -- who was Patty Loveless' lead guitar player before getting his own record deal on MCA -- will be the youngest guitarist at the festival!
