More than any other genre save rap, country music artists love working together. Whether through touring together, writing songs for each other, or even throwing a pal a verse or two, no group is closer than country's new gang of Georgia boys. These fellas bring a raucous brand of party rock to the Nashville scene.
Whether they're stars like Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard, or up-and-comers like Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell and Brantley Gilbert, these Georgians are making their home state proud. But at the center of it all is Leesburg's own Luke Bryan, the co-host of April 6's ACM awards. In advance of the ceremony, explore the ties that bind these Peach State superstars.

Wednesday is country music's biggest night as the industry's top stars step onto the red carpet and the Nashville stage for the 47th annual CMA Awards.
Up for the show's top honor as entertainer of the year are three male stars, one country icon and one female singer with a penchant for roping her own personal dramas into the lyrics of her songs.
But who will take home the big prize? Take our poll below!
Jason Aldean has had a tough year with a divorce in the works and a recent tour bus accident that killed a man, but the Georgia native's career continues red hot with his latest record, "Night Train."

Jason Aldean's tour bus hit and killed a man on an Indiana highway early Monday morning.
The country singer, 36, made a statement about the event on his Facebook page.
"With a heavy heart, I'm sad to say that a man passed away last night after stepping out in front of my bus in Indiana," he wrote.
"In all the years I've been touring and all the miles we've driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen," Aldean said. "I'm praying for Albert Kennedy's family and friends today and ask that you do the same."

What a difference a year makes.
In 2012, country music newcomer Hunter Hayes was thrilled to introduce Carrie Underwood as one of CMT's Artists of the Year – now he's been given the same honor himself.
The 22-year-old is one of five country music stars who've been named CMT's 2013 Artists of the Year.
"This year has been amazing, and I thought it couldn't get any better, and then they told me this," the "Wanted" singer tells PEOPLE exclusively.

It's a country music tradition.
Hosted by Little Big Town – who hit up all the festival hot spots, from Zac Brown's tailgate to Lady Antebellum's Ping Pong tournament benefiting their LadyAID Fund – the annual CMA Music Festival sees 80,000 fans converge on Nashville in June and rock out to country music's biggest names: Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean, as well as the most-buzzed about newcomers, Kacey Musgraves and Brett Eldredge.
This year was no different.
