Georgia is on the minds of music lovers as the first round of talent is announced for the “Fourth Annual Jameson Irish Whiskey Presents Georgia On My Mind” concert on May 16, 2017 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Hosted by the Peach Pickers – Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, and Ben Hayslip –the concert benefits the Georgia Music Foundation.

Tickets, which are available now, are $52.50 and $42.50 and will be available via Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com, ryman.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

Friends of the Peach Pickers scheduled to perform include current chart-toppers Lauren Alaina, Chris Janson, Kip Moore, and Michael Ray; Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter T. Graham Brown; Georgia Music Hall of Famers Drivin’ N Cryin’ and Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie; and back by popular demand this year, Dexter Redding and Otis Redding III, sons of the legendary soul icon Otis Redding. Additional announcements and surprise guests are expected. The evening also includes a special performance by students from the Georgia Pick and Bow Traditional Music School in Dahlonega, who received a grant from the Georgia Music Foundation in 2016 from concert proceeds.

The lineup is a who’s who of Georgia-bred singers and songwriters and those who wish they were raised in the Peach state. Organizers liken it to a family reunion, assembled and hosted by the Peach Pickers.

“This is as close to a Georgia homecoming as you are going to get in Tennessee,” explained Davidson, who also chairs the Georgia Music Foundation Board of Directors. “The popularity and success of this event is so rewarding because it celebrates our homegrown talent and allows us to give back to deserving music education programs.”

“At Jameson we believe music has the power to make a community a family, and we are excited to celebrate and be part of the Georgia-bred music family for the fourth year with ‘Georgia on My Mind,'” said Sebastien Borda, Director, Jameson, Pernod Ricard USA.

The Georgia Music Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 1994, has distributed more than $150,000 in grants to deserving music education, preservation and outreach programs across the state in the past three years from “Georgia On My Mind” proceeds. Each year during the concert, the Georgia Music Foundation presents its Flamekeeper Award to a Georgia artist who tirelessly preserves and promotes Georgia’s musical roots and traditions.
