Popular country music of today has evolved to something that probably makes Johnny and Hank turn over in their graves, and Merle just cringe really intensely. Funny that these exact individuals are the legends who most country superstars credit as their musical influences. That said, however pop-esque his sound may be, you have to give Brad Paisley credit for being creative. Who cannot relate to--if not even laugh at--one of his more popular hits, "Alcohol"? We've all been there and he has found quite a humorous way to musically interpret even some of the more unflattering things in life such as online dating and a woman's tendency to take an exorbitant amount of time getting ready. This summer, on his H20 World Tour, Paisley is teaming up with former Blowfish-turned-country-star Darius Rucker and new country up-and-comer Justin Moore. They make their stop in DFW 4 p.m. Saturday at the Superpages.com Center. Even if you aren't the biggest country fan, a set from Brad and another from a guy who probably thought his career tapped out in the '90s should make for an entertaining evening.
