The songwriting collaborations of the Peach Pickers (Rhett AkinsDallas Davidson, and Ben Hayslip) have yielded dozens of #1 singles, including many recorded by fellow Georgian Luke Bryan. The writers have touched the Bryan hits “Country Girl (Shake It for Me),” “I Don’t Want This Night to End,” “Play It Again,” “Rain Is a Good Thing,” and “That’s My Kind of Night.” The Georgia-bred tunesmiths will perform and discuss songwriting in support of the exhibit Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary. The title comes from a song written by Bryan and the Peach Pickers. Akins, Davidson, and Hayslip have written hits for other artists, including “All About Tonight” (Blake Shelton); “All Over Me” (Josh Turner); “Gimme That Girl” (Joe Nichols); and “Put a Girl in It” (Brooks & Dunn).
