Paula Nelson may not look like her daddy, the king of the Lone Star State's bio-herbal brigade and creator of some of the most legendary country ever, but she's got him in her voice. There's the shrill twang of Willie and a natural stage presence...mixed in with a bit more marketing and styling than the elder Nelson would surely care for. See how the daughter (and her band) fares when she takes on the House of Blues 8 p.m. Thursday (doors at 7) to pimp her album Lucky 13. Tickets are $10. Call 214-373-8000 or visit ticketmaster.com.
