Tim Sweetwood has been a staple of Atlanta's music scene for more than a decade. He started out as a music promoter.  Now he's a major player as the founder of the annual Atlanta music festivals known as Shaky Knees and Shaky Beats.

Producer Trevor Young caught up with Sweetwood during the Shaky Knees festival last month. We asked him to nominate two songs to our Georgia Playlist, our ever-growing, essential list of songs written or performed by Georgians. Press play to hear his picks.

Shaky Knees is officially underway, and the Friday lineup is killing it. Sure, it’s hot and there’s a lot to see, but you tend to forget about the overwhelming nature of music festivals a few bands in.
