BRAD PAISLEY
7:30 p.m., Alltel Arena. $32-$46.50.

Brad Paisley's
on quite a roll. Last year, the West Virgina-born picker and grinner took home both the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year Awards. Earlier this year, he garnered his ninth consecutive number one single with “Start a Band,” a duet with Keith Urban. It's a record unmatched in the 20 years Nielsen's been keeping track of such things. The fresh-faced performer might be the biggest star in country music these days. Adding to the appeal, Dierks Bentley and Darius Rucker appear as openers. Look for Bentley, who's a rising star in country music with a neo-traditionalist streak, to debut some new songs. He's got an album coming out in February. Rucker, of course, is the former front man of Hootie and the Blowfish, who's found new life on the twangier side of things.
