Carnival Music has extended its publishing deal with Jedd Hughes. The respected songwriter, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist first joined the Carnival roster in 2007, and returns to Nashville after a brief stint in Los Angeles.
A collaborator of legends and elder statesmen including Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Patty Loveless, and the late Guy Clark, as well as young bloods such as Dierks Bentley, Sarah Jarosz, and Ryan Bingham, Hughes is a bridge between giants of various generations and musical persuasions. In addition to co-writing Jarosz’s “House of Mercy,” which earned the 2017 Grammy for Best Americana Roots Performance, Hughes has penned and co-penned hits including Keith Urban’s “Put You in a Song,” as well as tracks for Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Charles Kelley, Josh Gracin, and more.
“Jedd’s talent is unmatched,” says Carnival Music’s Courtney Gregg. “Plenty of people know he’s a virtuosic musician and skilled songwriter, but what’s most impressive about Jedd is his restlessness. He is constantly growing. He’s the kind of artist Carnival was created to serve.”
“I have always been drawn to those living in the land of fearless creativity,” Hughes says. “I am at home and musically at peace at Carnival Music.”
