Bona fide country star Luke Bryan is no stranger to these shores, having played in Arkansas a handful of times over the last several years, most recently at the inaugural Thunder on the Mountain country 'n' campin' festival up on Mulberry Mountain.

Since getting his start, Bryan's gone from the tradition-grounded (if contemporary-sounding) earnest country of his first album, "I'll Stay Me," into total party mode with his last two long-players, 2011's "Tailgates & Tanlines" and the recent "Crash My Party." And then there was the four-EP run of spring-break-themed releases that started back in '09, collected earlier this year on "Spring Break ... Here to Party." Sample song titles: "If You Ain't Here to Party," "Sorority Girl," "Just a Sip," "Wild Weekend, "Cold Beer Drinker," and the closer, "Take My Drunk Ass Home."

It's like, how much more clear could he make it for us? Bryan is here to do one thing and one thing only, y'all: party. Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line open the sold-out show.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
