Black Top Boogie 

BLACK TOP BOOGIE
2 p.m., Riverfest Amphitheater. Free.

An annual country concert sponsored by KSSN 96 FM, this year's Black Top Boogie comes courtesy of your local natural gas driller, Chesapeake Energy, always eager to engender goodwill. Boogie is the culmination of the company-sponsored “Music in the Park,” a two-week concert series at the Riverfest Amphitheater. A who's who of country music up-and-comers headline the all-day concert. The end of the night headliner is likely to be either country-pop pretty Chuck Wicks or contemporary country (read: NashVegas) singer Luke Bryan. Or you never know, maybe one of the ladies will get top-billing. Ashton Shepherd pairs Dixie Chicks-style folk-country with tough-woman lyrics, while former “Dancing with the Stars” winner Julianne Hough does big, beaming country-pop weepers. Tickets are free, but must be picked up at an outlet. Find locations at kssn.com.
