Luke Bryan will be celebrating his home state of Georgia when he joins the star-studded lineup slated for the 3rd Annual “Jameson Irish Whiskey Presents Georgia On My Mind” show, benefiting the Georgia Music Foundation on Tuesday, May 10.
Returning to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, the concert will not only feature Bryan and hosts The Peach Pickers, but also Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Craig Campbell and Maggie Rose, who will be joined by Big Boi, one-half of Atlanta duo Outkast and New Orleans-based hip-hop artist, producer and DJ Mannie Fresh. Opening the show will be singer/songwriters Cole Taylor, Jordan Rager, Jon Langston, Travis Denning and Trae Landon, with some special surprise guests joining the show.
“Not only has the event quickly become like a family reunion for the artists, fans and sponsors, it is already making an impact in Georgia,” said The Peach Pickers member Dallas Davidson. “With proceeds from last year’s concert, the Foundation launched the Georgia Music Preservation, Education and Outreach program and distributed more than $60,000 to 12 schools and non-profit organizations.”
“In 2016, which we are calling the Year of Georgia Music, the spotlight has been put on our state as a destination for live music and music heritage,” said Commissioner Chris Carr of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “Through their chart-topping hits, The Peach Pickers have proven they know how to tell a story and each concert they have curated truly tells an impactful story of Georgia music—past, present and future.”
The evening will also include a special tribute to Macon, GA legend Otis Redding. His sons Dexter and Otis Redding III, will be on hand to help perform some of the late singer’s hits.
