On May 20, 2014, country stars, songwriters and fans gathered for “Georgia On My Mind: Jameson Irish Whiskey® & the Peach Pickers Friends Host a Night of Georgia Music.” The star-studded affair included performances by hosts Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip of the songwriting collective The Peach Pickers, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Daryle Singletary, veteran songwriters Pat Alger and Tony Arata and up-and-coming songwriters Brent Cobb, Sonia Leigh, Jordan Rager and Cole Taylor. The evening was a benefit for the Georgia Music Foundation, which supports programs of music preservation, education and outreach.
