For you contemporary country music fans, don't forget this week's Trace Adkins concert - Friday (May 4) in the Johnny Mercer Theatre.

Meanwhile, here's some more news you can use:

Singer Josh Gracin (who rose to fame as a finalist on American Idol) will appear May 24 at Saddle Bags, a new country club in Savannah. Two days later, Trent Tomlinson will sing at Saddle Bags.

On May 11, Josh Thompson appears at the other new country music club in town, Desperados. The club spotlights Texas teen Morgan Frazier, who records for Curb Records, July 6 and 7.

Hey now: The Beaufort Water Festival (that's in South Carolina, y'all) runs from July 13-22; this year's musical headliner is country singer James Otto.
