The show is usually held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The city is a home-away-from-home for numerous Georgia-born singers and songwriters including former hosts The Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, and Ben Hayslip), who turned the reins over to Cobb and Ray this year. Concerns for public safety and COVID-19 prompted organizers to reimagine the event this year as an online concert.

Gretsch Executive Vice President/CFO Dinah Gretsch, who is also a member of the Board of Directors for the Georgia Music Foundation explained, “The proceeds fund the Foundation’s annual grants for music programs at schools and non-profit organizations all over the state. My husband, Fred, and I believe that the music industry and non-profit organizations like this one will need our support now more than ever, and we’re proud to make it possible to take this concert online and share it with even more people.”
