Events

The Georgia Music Foundation's outreach activities are focused on digital and experiential platforms that foster an awareness not only of Georgia's musical past, but also its present and future.

GAOnMyMind-Logo-SMSAVE THE DATE! The 4th Annual ‘Georgia On My Mind’ hosted by the Peach Pickers and friends to benefit the Georgia Music Foundation will be held Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. Ticket info coming soon…

For the past three years, the Peach Pickers (songwriters Dallas Davidson, Ben Hayslip and Rhett Akins) have hosted “Jameson Irish Whiskey Presents Georgia On My Mind,” a family reunion of sorts featuring chart-topping, yet often-unannounced, Georgia artists and songwriters. Proceeds benefit the Georgia Music Foundation and are distributed through the Foundation’s Georgia Music Preservation, Education and Outreach Grant.

Artists who have performed for “Georgia On My Mind” since 2014 include Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, Big Boi, Craig Campbell, Lauren Alaina, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Tyler Farr, Maggie Rose, Dexter Redding, Otis Redding, III, Daryle Singletary, Tony Arata, Pat Alger, Cole Taylor, Jordan Rager, Sonia Leigh, Brent Cobb, Travis Denning, Jon Langston and Mannie Fresh. In 2014, a special performance by students from the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils stole the show and kept the audience—and artists watching from backstage—on their feet and cheering.
