Georgia natives Luke Bryan, Phillip Phillips, Cole Swindell, The Peach Pickers and DJ Rock will host a benefit show in their home state on Oct. 3 at the Exchange Club of Albany in Albany, Georgia. Proceeds raised will be donated to The Heart of South Georgia Fund of The Community Foundation of South Georgia to support the ongoing natural disaster relief efforts as well as other needs within the community.
“My hometown is more than a place for me. It is a way of life,” Bryan said. “Growing up in South Georgia has had such an impact on me in so many ways and I’m so glad that this group of amazing artists and writers are able to come back home and help those who have been hit by such devastation over the past couple of years.”
“Albany is my home,” Phillips said. “I have traveled near and far, but always come back home. This is where my family is and where I planted my roots. I was home on Jan. 22, 2017, when the tornado ravaged our area and surrounding areas. I was able to get out that night and in the days following to serve alongside my community, seeing the true heart of our city. I am honored to have the opportunity now to play this special show.”
“When I was asked to be a part of this event I didn’t hesitate,” Swindell added. “Even though I get to travel the country doing what I love day after day there is nothing that gives me a sense of recharging than coming back home to South Georgia and being around the people who helped get me here. Being able to give back in some small way means the world to me.”
Dallas Davidson of The Peach Pickers said, “I’m extremely excited to be a part of The Heart of South Georgia show. It’s an honor to be able to give back to a town that gave me so much. No matter where I am I always take a piece of Albany, Georgia with me.”
