Hook and Ladder Country Music Festival 

HOOK AND LADDER COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL

11 a.m., North Shore Riverwalk. $30 adv., $35 d.o.s.

 

Slather on the sunscreen, country fans. A strong line-up has been assembled in North Little Rock to benefit the Fallen Firefighters Memorial Fund. John Anderson, the '80s favorite who hit it big with songs like “Wild and Blue” and “Swingin,'” mounted a comeback last year with the funny, charming “Easy Money.” Since the late '80s, Confederate Railroad has churned out album after album of Southern rock-infused country. DeQueen native Collin Raye is known for slick, sweeping ballads. Canadian act Emerson Drive made its bones with Richard Marx-produced country-pop; the band's latest album, “Countrified,” twanged the sound up a bit. Nashville's Diamond Rio blends modern country, bluegrass, high harmonies and a taste of rock 'n' roll. Little Rock's own Riverbilly also performs. Tickets are available at RAO Video, Arkansas Record and CD Exchange, the Record Rack in Pine Bluff and online at www.celebrityattractions.com.
