Strait into Alltel 

7:30 p.m., Alltel Arena. $54.50-$64.50.

Nobody draws better in Central Arkansas than George Strait. On Saturday, the country legend will try to best the Alltel attendance record he set last year (18,004). For 25 years, Strait has been one of country music's sturdiest stars. With Marlboro Man looks, a knack for choosing material and an effortless ability to make traditional country sound fresh, Strait comes to town touring behind “It Just Comes Natural,” his latest Grammy-nominated album. With more than 30 records and 400-plus songs, Strait has more albums certified gold and platinum in the U.S. than anyone but Elvis and the Beatles. He's a prime example of someone in pop music who has found his niche and is content to stay true to it until the cows come home. His fans certainly seem willing to stick with him. Better buy your tickets early.
