2017 Georgia on My Mind Concert Lineup Announced
The fourth annual Georgia on My Mind concert will return to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on May 16, boasting a heavy lineup of Georgia natives.
Stars on hand to perform on the famed stage include Lauren Alaina, Chris Janson, Kip Moore and Michael Ray as well as T. Graham Brown, Drivin' N Cryin', Jimmy Hall, Dexter Redding and Otis Redding III.
The Peach Pickers, who include Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip, will host the evening and the concert will benefit the Georgia Music Foundation.
"This is as close to a Georgia homecoming as you are going to get in Tennessee," Davidson says in a press release. "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."
Tickets are available via Ticketmaster outlets and Ryman.com and cost $52.50 and $42.50. Additional performers will be announced at a later date. The evening also includes a special performance by students from the Georgia Pick and Bow Traditional Music School in Dahlonega, Ga., who received a grant from the Georgia Music Foundation in 2016 from concert proceeds.
"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,'" says Sebastien Borda, director of Jameson, Pernod Ricard USA, which sponsors the event.
Previous performers at the concert include Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Big Boi of Outkast, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, Kevn Kinney, Lee Brice, Craig Campbell, Tyler Farr, Maggie Rose, Daryle Singletary and Brent Cobb, among others.
