Weekend watch: Roots and Boots Tour


Three big country voices, all with different styles, share one stage Friday night at Shooting Star Casino, Mahnomen, Minn. Joe Diffie’s humorous crooning in hits like “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die),” “Pickup Man” and “Bigger Than the Beatles” play off Sammy Kershaw’s charm in “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful” and “Cadillac Style.” Aaron Tippin’s blue-collar anthems “You’ve got to Stand for Something” and “Working Man’s Ph.D” adds another dimension, but they should all join together for the new single “All in the Same Boat.” Music starts at 8 p.m. for this all-ages acoustic show. Tickets are $15, $25 and $35. (800) 313-7469.
