High Lonesome

Just got done watching a Smokey and The Bandit double feature on CMT and realized that I haven’t really put any country music up. I don’t really have anything against country, but being from New York City, it doesn’t spring to mind that often. This song is the first single from Australian born Jedd Hughes solo album, Transcontinental. Lyrically, it’s a pretty conventional country track, a dude lamenting the loss of his great love; but, damn, this kid can play guitar. He’s not really a kid anymore, but I’ve got about 10 years on him, so it’s just a figure of speech. These days Hughes writes and plays for other artists like Sarah Buxton, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw.
