After a sold-out show earlier in 2014 at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley, songwriting trio The Peach Pickers (Dallas Davidson, Ben Hayslip, and Rhett Akins) will return to host the second annual Jameson Irish Whiskey Presents Georgia On My Mind: Peach Pickers and Friends Host a Night of Georgia Music, on Tuesday, May 12, 2015.
The show moves to a larger venue next year, at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 12, with proceeds benefiting the Georgia Music Foundation. The benefit’s first show at 3rd & Lindsley featured surprise appearances from Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Cole Swindell, along with Georgia songwriters Pat Alger, Tony Arata and Brent Cobb.
“Ben, Rhett and I were so humbled to have so many friends come together last year,” explains The Peach Pickers’ Davidson. “All of us in Nashville today who are from Georgia share this bond that’s connected to the land, but also to the deep musical roots in our state. As chair of the Georgia Music Foundation, I had the opportunity to see the students from the James Brown Academy perform this fall, I was so moved to see what a profound impact that programs that provide music education and teach about music heritage have on students.”
Tickets are $49.50 and $39.50, and will be available at Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com, ryman.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
