George Strait's successful country music career has spanned more than three decades. The native Texan, who in 2006 was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, has more than 50 No. 1 hit singles and has won dozens of awards, including honors from the Country Music Association and the American Music Awards. Strait, a current Grammy nominee, performs Saturday at 1st Mariner Arena. Country music group Little Big Town will also perform. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $54.50-$64.

HOLLYWOOD - "Awards shows have to be of the moment now," says Dick Clark, a shoo-in for a lifetime achievement award if they ever had an awards show for awards shows. Clark's 32nd annual American Music Awards air at 8 tonight on ABC. The early years of the show may have been like yearbooks reflecting on the previous year's hits, but this new edition is very much November 2004 in its staging, with Gwen Stefani making her national TV solo debut, and cast members of Desperate Housewives and Lost among the presenters.

If anybody knows awards shows, Dick Clark does.Clark, after all, has spent years helping to make trophy-giving an industry in itself. Since creating the American Music Awards two decades ago, he has churned out a dizzying array of similarly star-studded bashes, including shows devoted to the Golden Globe Awards, the Daytime Emmy Awards and the Academy of Country Music Awards. All told, he has probably contributed more to the tuxedo-rental business than any man in Hollywood.Even so, Clark's view of these shows isn't quite what the average viewer might expect.

Even the broadcast networks, I guess, deserve a vacation every once in a while. That's the only explanation I can muster for tonight's programming in prime time, which is so far from prime it's not even funny -- and certainly isn't worth watching. Cable offers virtually the only offerings worth sampling, and even there it's slim pickings -- Thanksgiving weekend holiday leftovers.* "The American Music Awards 20th Anniversary" (8-10 p.m., WJZ-Channel 13) -- Still scurrying for weekly replacements for "The Paula Poundstone Show," ABC tonight settles on this quickie special from Dick Clark Productions, which is a scary "innovation" for a TV awards show.

If they ever gave an award for producing awards shows, Dick Clark would win in a walk.It isn't just that he has the American Music Awards airing live from Los Angeles tonight at 8 on ABC (WMAR, Channel 2). As it turns out, Clark has one awards show a week from now through the end of February."We did the Golden Globes last Saturday," he says, over the phone from his office in Los Angeles. "We'll be doing the Daytime Soaps shortly after this one, then the Daytime Emmys, followed by the Academy of Country Music thing."

COOLNESS USED to be displayed in unflappable self-confidence, swagger supported by refined skill, and graceful charm conveyed through wit. Now it seems to require only a lack of rudimentary sensibility and an easy rapport with vulgarity. So I expect that Everybody Loves Raymond co-star Patricia Heaton will be viewed as lacking in cool. She chose to walk out on the American Music Awards Jan. 13, leaving before she was scheduled to appear on stage to introduce a video presentation of the show's history.

Hey, the Super Bowl was yesterday. Let's get back to reality."The American Music Awards" (8 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- For the 24th time, a random sampling of average Americans (did anyone ask you?) picks their favorites from the world of music. Tonight's ceremony promises a salute to "The Year of the Woman," including a look at the year's most prominent female singers (with Garth Brooks as host) and a performance by Leann Rimes. Other artists scheduled to appear include Toni Braxton, Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, NAS, New Edition, Rod Stewart and Keith Sweat.
