Brooks & Dunn at Alltel

HONKY-TONKIN: Brooks and Dunn at Alltel.
  • HONKY-TONKIN: Brooks and Dunn at Alltel.
Get ready for some serious honky-tonk country when powerhouse duo Brooks & Dunn and their heirs apparent, Big & Rich, invade Alltel Arena on Sunday, Aug. 7, for the Deuces Wild Tour. They’ll be joined by special guests Warren Brothers and “hick-hop” country rapper Cowboy Troy when the concert starts at 7 p.m. “Neon Moon,” “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “Hard Workin’ Man,” “That Ain’t No Way To Go,” “Rock My World (Little Country Girl,)” “She’s Not The Cheatin’ Kind” and “Mama Don’t Get Dressed Up For Nothing” are some of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn’s biggest hits. (They’re second place only to Simon and Garfunkel in numbers of records sold.) For the tour, they’ll bring in a 576-square-foot LED projection screen that will play videos and footage shot especially for the tour during the music. “Big Kenny” Alphin (apparently no one refers to him by anything more than Big Kenny) and John Rich have made a name by wandering from the traditional country genre to make “American music,” as Alphin describes it. Their hit “Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)” pushed their CD “Horse of a Different Color” to number one on national and country music charts. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $41.50 and $51.50 through Ticketmaster (975-7575, www.ticketmaster.com) or the arena box office (975-9000).

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
