Carnival Music songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Jedd Hughes has joined ASCAP as a writer member.

ASCAP Creative Director Robert Filhart said, “​Jedd and I first met in 2006, when I started working for the publishing company where Jedd was signed. We have been friends ever since and have always talked about working together, and I could not be more excited to have the opportunity to work with Jedd now. Along with his playing, producing and writing for other artists, Jedd has incredible new music that will be coming out this summer. The entire Nashville team is honored to welcome him to the ASCAP family.”

Hughes is a bridge between giants of various generations and musical persuasions, having collaborated with legends including Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Patty Loveless, and the late Guy Clark, as well as current hitmakers Dierks Bentley, Sarah Jarosz and Ryan Bingham. He co-wrote Jarosz’s “House of Mercy,” which earned the 2017 Grammy for Best Americana Roots Performance, and he has co-penned hits including Keith Urban’s “Put You in a Song” and tracks for Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Charles Kelley, Josh Gracin and more.
