KENNY CHESNEY/PAT GREEN/ SUGARLAND 

Country acts come to Little Rock.

No one does pop-country like Kenny Chesney. And certainly, no one sells it like Chesney. “She’s Got It All,” “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy,” “The Good Stuff” and “There Goes My Life” are just a few of his Number 1 hits off albums that went platinum two, three and four times over. While he’s been likened to Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley, both family men, the Knoxville native’s songs follow more of a single-and-free-to-mingle path. To add to that cocktail, Chesney is well on his way to becoming this generation’s Jimmy Buffett, mining the beach-bum persona for all it’s worth. In most of his music videos, you’ll find him barefooted and bare-chested, drinking and sunning on some Caribbean getaway. Seeing him live might be cause to don your Hawaiian shirt and scare up a margarita. Country crooner Pat Green and singer/songwriter duo Sugarland play in support, but might draw just as big of a share of the crowd. Green, a three-time Grammy nominee, released “Cannonball” last year and has steadily developed a strong following from ceaseless touring through the years. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are Sugarland, a Nashville duo who write stripped-down yet somehow still anthemic country-tinged pop hits.

7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19.
Alltel Arena. $54.50-64.50. 975-7575,

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.
  • You want tort reform? Try this.

    The nursing home industry and the chamber of commerce finally defeated the trial lawyers in the 2017 legislature. The Republican-dominated body approved a constitutional amendment for voters in 2018 that they'll depict as close to motherhood in goodness.
  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
  • Raw feelings in the Arkansas Justice Building over workload, pay

    Strained relations between the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals broke into public view this week. I expect more to come.
