The best guitarist in the state under the age of 20 lives in East Texas.

He's from Center, and he plays lead guitar for a band that is catching on both in person and online.

Cade Foehner is 17-years old, and is the lead guitarist for the band Johnson's Lost Crowes of Shelbeyville.  And he just won a competition at the Dallas International Guitar Festival where he beat out hundreds of other guitar players to earn the title of "Best Guitarist Under 20."

KTRE says the guys in the band all share a love for classic southern rock, and the chemistry in the band just sort of happened, and things fell into place.

Johnson's Lost Crowes formed about three years ago, and they're working on their second album which could be out this summer. You can keep up with the band on their Facebook page.  We'll be watching!
