The Peach Pickers is a songwriter team composed of Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, and Ben Hayslip.

Akins and Hayslip met while attending high school together in Valdosta, Georgia, before Akins signed a contract with Decca Records in the mid-1990s. Davidson began songwriting in college, where he was roommates with singer Luke Bryan. He and Akins met in 2004 when the two co-wrote "Kiss My Country Ass", which both Akins and Blake Shelton cut. After Akins brought Davidson to a songwriting session, the three began holding songwriting meetings every Wednesday.[1][2] Among the songs that they have written together are Shelton's "All About Tonight", Josh Turner's "All Over Me", Jack Ingram's "Barefoot and Crazy", Brooks & Dunn's "Put a Girl in It", Joe Nichols' "Gimmie That Girl", and Bryan's "I Don't Want This Night to End".[3] All three members of the team have also have co-writers' credits outside their collaborations.[1]
