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,
