A collection of Georgia-connected artists will perform live online for the seventh annual “Gretsch Presents Georgia On My Mind” concert.
The show, hosted by Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls and musician/songwriter Brent Cobb, will take place at 8 p.m. ET on May 26.
Participating artists include Chuck Leavell, Amy Grant, Caroline Aiken, Tony Arata, John Berry, Kristian Bush's band Dark Water, Rutha Harris, John Driskell Hopkins, Indigo Girls, Kalen & Aslyn, Kim Michael Polote, Katie Pruitt, The War & Treaty, Channing Wilson, Jontavious Willis, Adam Wright and more to be announced.
Initiated by Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins, and Ben Hayslip – aka the Peach Pickers – the annual event benefits the Georgia Music Foundation, a non-profit that supports programs of music education, preservation, and outreach.
The trio turned hosting duties over to Ray and Cobb this year to “keep things fresh.”
"This is an unprecedented time, where we are united in our isolation and yearning to connect through music. For Brent and I to come together and host a lineup of artists from across the state of Georgia is a huge honor for both of us,” Ray said.
