The Peach Pickers will play once again on May 10th to celebrate their home state Georgia at The 3rd annual Jameson Irish Whiskey Presents Georgia On My Mind concert which includes artists like Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, and Craig Campbell.
They will perform at the Ryman and do a special tribute to Otis Redding who would have been 75 years old. His sons, Dexter Redding and Otis Redding III will perform some of Redding’s songs. Starting off the concert will be Cole Taylor, Jordan Rager, Jon Langston, and more. This benefit raised $60,000 last year and the money was distributed to 12 schools and nonprofit organizations.
The Peach Pickers are composed of songwriters Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins, and Ben Hayslip who have teamed up for 60 No. 1s including “I Don’t Want This Night to End,” “It Goes Like This,” “I Don’t Dance,” and “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.” The song-writing trio have well-established their place among American songwriters and are truly one of a kind!
The Georgia Music Foundation supports programs such as music preservation, education and outreach. The 2016 Georgia Travel Guide features country superstar Luke Bryan on the cover. Georgia supports its long heritage with music and will continue to support The Peach Pickers.
Commissioner Chris Carr of the Georgia Department of Economic Development said, “Through their chart-topping hits, The Peach Pickers have proven they know how to tell a story and each concert they have curated truly tells an impactful story of Georgia music — past, present and future.”
I am excited to see what the Peach Pickers are up to next and this benefit concert will help schools and nonprofit organizations all around Georgia. This trio has changed country music and now they are changing Georgia! The concert will take place May 10 at the Ryman and you can purchase your tickets through ticketmaster.com, ryman.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
