Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, Thomas Rhett 

When: Fri., Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2013

What: Aldean's melodramatic ballads and arena-sized anthems are heavily influenced by '90s country—heck, his single "1994" is literally one Joe Diffie shout-out after another—though his unaffected vocals don't match the overblown sentiments and arrangements. Attempts to break from his formula—like his rapped verses on "Dirt Road Anthem"—are awkward at best. He plays Walnut Creek with openers Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett.
