CHRIS CAGLE
9 p.m., the Village. $15-$30.

Southern rock feeds into Chris Cagle's sound more than honky-tonk touchstones like Hank Williams and George Jones. Still, in today's popular country landscape, where big, bright pop artists like Big and Rich and Carrie Underwood rule the roost, Cagle almost figures in as a traditionalist. Even amid guitar rave-ups, the Louisiana native knows how to get at the heart of the new country landscape. He's got a coming-of-age track called “Wal-Mart Parking Lot” and another, lest you don't get the message, titled “Country by the Grace of God.” With a new single, “What Kinda Gone,” steadily climbing up the charts, and a forthcoming album with the same name, Cagle comes to town to perform with Chuck Gatlin, a Benton-reared country singer whose star seems to be rising. Like Cagle, Gatlin's sound rests firmly on Southern rock and old-fashioned Southern values. Sponsored by KSSN, the concert is Bob Robbins' annual “Toy Hill” event for Toys for Tots. Admission is $15 with a toy.
