August 1, 2015 - The songwriting collaborations of the Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Dallas 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 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).
