It was a picking party of epic proportions! And two of country music's favorite guitar slingers, Vince Gill and Keith Urban, were there to throw down.

Eric Clapton hosted the Crossroads Guitar Festival April 12 and 13 at New York's Madison Square Garden and Vince was one of the many pickers showcased.

On Friday, April 12, Vince performed with fellow guitarist Andy Fairweather Low and Eric on the monster hits "Lay Down Sally" and "Wonderful Tonight."

On Saturday, Vince and his band, along with Keith and guitar icon Albert Lee, performed "Ain't Living Long Like This," "Leave My Woman Alone," the Rolling Stones classic "Tumbling Dice" and Eric's "Set Me Up."

And it wasn't just fun, games and guitars. The event served as a benefit for Eric Clapton's Crossroads Center—a drug treatment facility in Antigua.
