Jason Aldean has made a name for himself with down-and-dirty songs like "Hicktown" and "Big Green Tractor" that hark back to old-fashioned country and western. The first single off his last album, a defiant barnstormer called "My Kinda Party," follows that same formula. But the second single, "Don't You Wanna Stay," a duet with "American Idol" star Kelly Clarkson, shows off his softer side. He said it's something he plans to do more, starting with his next single. He'll perform that song and several others that are more up-tempo at his show Saturday at Jiffy Lube Live.

With a string of No. 1 hits at country radio in recent years, Jake Owen has earned the right to steer his career. So when it came to designing the set of his Days of Gold Tour this year, the 33-year-old singer-songwriter filled the stage with tiki bars, nautical ropes and palm trees. Owen wanted it to look like Riverside Cafe - a bar located on the Indian River in his hometown of Vero Beach, Fla. - for sentimental reasons, and not just because they cook “a good fish sandwich.” “It's the place that really embraced me when I started playing guitar,” Owen said on the phone recently from Missouri while on the road.

For the country singer Jason Aldean, success can be measured many ways: more than 8.5 million albums sold, 12 No. 1 hits on country radio and being named the 2013 Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music are a few examples that could work. Then there's the fact Aldean sold out Boston's Fenway Park last year faster than Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones and Justin Timberlake. But the easy-going 36-year-old from Macon, Ga., has a simpler view. Aldean says his Night Train Tour, which stops at Baltimore Arena on Saturday, is different from previous tours because he now has the resources to execute the concert experience he first envisioned.

Last week, Thomas Rhett walked with his wife through a Nashville Walmart in search of an electric dog fence. While strolling the aisles, the 24-year-old country singer-songwriter passed the music section and spotted his debut album, October's “It Goes Like This,” on the shelves. “There's a Walmart literally every five miles from here to Seattle, Washington,” Rhett said on the phone afterward. “Knowing that your face is on all those racks in Target, Best Buy and all those places, it makes you feel very, very small.” As his star has grown among the country ranks, Rhett - who plays a free Power Plant Live concert on Friday to celebrate the opening of new country bar Tin Roof - has embraced humility.

The second night of the intense Battle Rounds took place last night. Coaches Blake, Adam, Usher and Shakira were forced to make tough decisions while assembling the teams they believe hold "the Voice. " Night two held no punches as some judges praised some contestants and others not so much. I think Usher is still trying to figure what Jeff Lewis thought was so hilarious during rehearsals. *insert scowling Usher eyebrow* Team Adam: Michael Austin vs. Warren Stone, “My Kind of Party” by Jason Aldean It was the battle of the civil service men as Deputy Sheriff Michael Austin (and his black cowboy hat)

Jiffy Lube Live banned tailgating last spring over concern about endless tailgates and excessive drinking at its massive parking lot, Ambassadors. Fans were aghast, creating a handful of "Boycott Jiffy Lube" Facebook groups and online petitions. On Thursday, the venue, run by Live Nation, announced it would bring tailgating back starting with the new concert season under a new set of rules and increased supervision from police and staff. The Bristow, Va.-based venue describes the return of the tailgates not as a cave-in to fan demand, but a reconfiguration of a tradition the venue had been well known for. To keep the tailgating in check, the venue came up with a new set of guidelines in in cooperation with Prince William County Police; they are: -  "All parking is on a first come, first served basis and spaces cannot be reserved or held for other cars.  Each car must occupy only one space and all tailgating activities must occur directly in front, behind or inside the car.  Due to the space challenges and safety concerns, tents will not be allowed in order to keep all pedestrian and drive isles free from obstruction.

About five years ago, Jason Aldean would sing to a small knot of folks, maybe 20 or so, in out-of-the-way clubs. Those amateur shows in small Southern and Midwestern bars, sometimes filled with rowdy beer-guzzling college students, were great prep work for the big time: a national tour opening for Rascal Flatts, one of country's biggest groups. "Back then, you're singing somebody else's songs, and it's easier to get 20 people involved than 20,000," says Aldean, who plays 1st Mariner Arena tonight.
