The songwriting team the Peach Pickers — Georgia natives Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip — will host the show with proceeds supporting the Georgia Music Foundation. Together, they’ve written some of the biggest hits in today’s country music including Luke Bryan’s “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” Blake Shelton’s “All About Tonight,” Joe Nichols’ “Gimmie That Girl” and Brooks & Dunn’s “Put a Girl In It.”
T. Graham Brown, Drivin’ N Cryin’, Wet Willie’s Jimmy Hall and Otis Redding’s sons Dexter Redding and Otis Redding III will also perform.
Over the last three years, the Georgia On My Mind benefit has developed a reputation for hosting some surprise guests. Bryan, Jason Aldean, Big Boi of Outkast, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, Kevn Kinney, Lee Brice, Craig Campbell, Tyler Farr, Maggie Rose, Daryle Singletary, Brent Cobb and others have all joined the Pickers live onstage at the event.
