Peach Pickers Open Tickets For 4th Annual Georgia Benefit At The Ryman

gaonmymind-logo-mdTickets for the Peach Pickers’ May 16, 2017, Georgia On My Mind concert went on sale Tues., Dec. 20 at ryman.com and all Ticketmaster outlets.

The 4th annual event returns to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium with a yet-to-be-announced group of artist/songwriter guest appearances. Presented by Jameson Irish Whiskey, the event raises money for the Georgia Music Foundation, which distributes grants in music education, preservation and outreach programs. Each year during the concert, the foundation presents its Flamekeeper Award to a Georgia artist who preserves and promotes Georgia’s musical roots and traditions.

“I can’t overestimate the importance of Georgia to the Peach Pickers,” explains Dallas Davidson, “but the success of this event has proven how special our state’s music means to a lot of people. Last year, when Randy Houser told the audience what Otis Redding’s music meant to him before breaking into ‘I’ve Been Loving You Too Long’ was an awesome moment, especially with all three of Otis’ children standing backstage.”

Rhett Akins adds, “I was so stoked when Kevn Kinney played that I could barely introduce him for sharing stories about listening to [Kinney’s rock band] Drivin’ N Cryin’ when I was living in Athens.”

Dallas Davidson, who chairs the Georgia Music Foundation, says, “Sharing the Ryman stage with our friends and having Jameson Irish Whiskey and Georgia Tourism on board has helped us hit a home run for fans every year. But having the proceeds support the Foundation truly makes it an annual grand slam.”
