Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Peach Pickers & More to Headline Benefit Concert in Georgia

Georgia natives Luke Bryan, Phillip Phillips, Cole Swindell, The Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip) and DJ Rock will host a benefit show—dubbed The Heart of South Georgia—in their home state on Oct. 3 at the Exchange Club of Albany in Albany, Ga.

Proceeds raised from the concert will be donated to The Heart of South Georgia Fund of The Community Foundation of South Georgia to support the ongoing natural disaster relief efforts as well as other needs within the community.

“My hometown is more than a place for me—it is a way of life,” says Luke. “Growing up in South Georgia has had such an impact on me in so many ways and I’m so glad that this group of amazing artists and writers are able to come back home and help those who have been hit by such devastation over the past couple of years.”

“When I was asked to be a part of this event I didn’t hesitate,” said Cole. “Even though I get to travel the country doing what I love day after day there is nothing that gives me a sense of recharging than coming back home to South Georgia and being around the people who helped get me here. Being able to give back in some small way means the world to me.”

Tickets are on sale now.
