Billboard: Rhett Akins, Lee Brice & More Bring 'A Night of Georgia Music' to Nashville Charity Concert
Nashville powerhouse songwriter Dallas Davidson told Billboard there must have been something in the water in South Georgia, since three of the men who turned out to be some of his best friends and musical partners all hail from the area.
Georgia musicians dominate the country music charts and on May 12, 2015, the Peach Pickers have once again assembled a star-studded group of friends for the 2nd Annual “Jameson® Irish Whiskey Presents Georgia On My Mind.” For the second year in a row, ACM Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan joins a lineup featuring Lauren Alaina, Lee Brice, Craig Campbell, Tyler Farr, Four Wheel Drive (featuring Travis Denning, Jon Langston, Jordan Rager and Cole Taylor), J.A.M.P. Masters, Kevn Kinney of drivin ‘n’ cryin, Thomas Rhett, Maggie Rose and Cole Swindell with additional surprise guests expected. The concert, to be held at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn., benefits the Georgia Music Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports programs of music preservation, education and outreach. Tickets are $49.50 and $39.50 and available at ryman.com.
