Saturday To-Do: Kenny Chesney / Miranda Lambert

Posted By on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 2:03 PM


7:30 p.m., Alltel. $25-$89.50.

If it'd stop raining long enough for the sun to come out this would be perfect. 'Cause, if you hadn't heard, country music's most popular performer (really, he's got a 2009 Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year Award to prove it) loves him a boozy, beach anthem. On his “Sun City Carnival” — previous tours have been called things like “Margaritas 'n' Senoritas Tour” and “Guitars, Tiki Bars & Whole Lotta Love Tour” — Kenny Chesney comes to town in support of his “Greatest Hits II” album, out May 19. So look for a sizeable helping of songs from 2002 to the present, the range the album covers. One of Nashville's finest shares the bill. With hits like “Gunpowder & Lead” (“I'm goin' home, gonna load my shotgun / Wait by the door and light a cigarette / He wants a fight — well, now he's got one/And he ain't seen me crazy yet”), Miranda Lambert's the undisputed queen of the woman-scorned song — and maybe the most empowering woman working in country music. Augusta, Ga.'s Lady Antebellum opens.
