CARRIE UNDERWOOD
7 p.m., Verizon Arena. $35.50-$55.50

No one epitomizes the goodness to be found in "American Idol" quite like the small-town girl from Checotah, Okla. — just a bike ride away from Fort Smith — who drove to "Idol" auditions in St. Louis on a whim, became a hometown hero after making the cut, and authoritatively won the season, becoming, arguably, the biggest female country star around today. You don't have to look any further than Carrie Underwood's multi-platinum albums, Grammys and Grand Ole Opry member card for proof. Now the megastar is stopping off in Little Rock for her "Play On Tour." She's supported by country rocker Billy Currington and the bluegrass-tinged brothers of Sons of Sylvia.
