CONCERT George Strait : They call him the "King of Country," yet they could also call him the "King of Baltimore." Huge crowds are a given when he comes to town. He brings a warm, easygoing style to his vast catalog of heartland-themed hits. The show, which also features Reba McEntire, starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday at 1st Mariner Arena. Web: www.baltimorearena.com COMEDY Cheech and Chong: This pot-smoking comic duo have been reunited after more 20 years. Part stoner yuckfest, part marijuana political rally, their tour had a shaky start, but it's picking up some steam after more than a year on the road.

When bitty little George Strait throws back his bitty little head and sings one of those sweet, sad cowboy songs of lost love or enduring friendship, "Pure Country" indeed achieves a kind of purity. Strait is instantly believable and instantly likable: little guy, looks as tough as brass ball bearings, his head almost gobbled up by a hat half the size of Texas, and the other half of him squeezed like toothpaste out of jeans so enameled to his scrawny frame you'd think he'd sing like a Vienna Choir boy. But he has a laid-back country grace and a hard little kernel of self-regard at the center of his presence, and that big old voice is as commanding as a blues saxophone.

This time it's Sting.The respected rock singer-songwriter is taking a cue from pop's self-avowed soul provider by making his Nashville television debut on tonight's 31st annual Country Music Association awards.Like Bolton, who performed with friend and country vocalist rTC Wynonna, the ex-Police-man will take the stage with Oklahoman Toby Keith to sing their duet version of "I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying."The tune, originally on Sting's "Mercury Falling," was recorded for Keith's current "Dream Walkin'" project -- though the singers taped their vocals separately.

Sarah Johns herself will tell you she's a "traditional kinda girl." For her debut CD, Big Love in a Small Town, the country-music newcomer didn't want too much pop polish applied to her sound. "Honey, I love Hank Williams, music like that - real country music," says the native Kentuckian. "If it was up to me, I would've put fiddles and steel all over [the album]. It would've been nothing but shuffles." In concert Sarah Johns and George Strait perform at 1st Mariner Arena, 201 W. Baltimore St., at 7:30 Friday night.

You never know what's going to happen when you sign to a major label: You could languish in obscurity as you did before, or you could turn into Miranda Lambert. Lambert hasn't quite hit household-name status, but the gritty country singer's getting there: Her major-label debut, Kerosene, has been a steady seller since its release last year, and after her appearance on the recent Country Music Association Awards (in which the stage was set on fire, literally), it's not like anyone's going to forget her anytime soon.
