BUDDY JEWELL
8 p.m., Juanita's. $15.

After winning "Best Male Vocalist" on a handful of early-'90s episodes of Star Search, recording more than 5,000 demos in Nashville and a couple of independent releases in the early 2000s, Osceola native Buddy Jewell finally hit his stride in a big way when he won the first season of "Nashville Star" in 2003. Soon, the Nashville star became a bona fide country superstar with a proper, Clint Black-produced debut that stayed in rotation on the airwaves for months. Seven years later, the roadhouse workhog is still at it, gigging around the country and winning over audiences with his signature good-ol'-boy charm and leather baritone. Doors open at 7 p.m.; the hometown boy-done-good hits the stage at 8 p.m.
