Blake Shelton at Innsbrook Pavilion

comment
[image-1]If there's one thing a male contemporary country artist loves to sing about, it's letting everybody know he's still a cowboy-boot-wearing, beer-drinking, pickup-truck-driving, wildlife-hunting, American-flag-waving, backwoods good old boy. Making one of the biggest cases among champions of Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith is Blake Shelton's “Kiss My Country Ass.” With a litany of stereotype-accentuating lines, this lifestyle love teeters between demographic pride and redneck pandering. Sure to be in regular honky-tonk barroom rotation nonetheless, Shelton brings the song and the rest of his recently released “Six Pak” six-track EP, “Hillbilly Bone,” when he plays Innsbrook Pavilion on Wednesday, July 14, at 6 p.m. $17-$35. 423-1775. — Mike Hilleary
