THE MAVERICKS Earlier this year at Royale, the country-rock-Latin-pop crew threw one helluva party to celebrate their reunion and the solid fruits of said regrouping, the top notch “In Time.” Raul Malo stills sings like an angel, the band is still red hot. This show should be worth the drive to Webster. Aug. 18, 2 p.m. Tickets: $20-$55. Indian Ranch. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

KIM RICHEY Taking a break from her opening slot on tour with Nick Lowe, singer-songwriter Richey pops over to one of her favorite spots for a headlining show for her splendid latest release, “Thorn in My Heart.” Bring tissues in preparation to dab the tears of both joy and sorrow since Richey is adept at teasing out both. Aug. 19, 8 p.m. Tickets: $25. Club Passim. 617-492-7679, www.clubpassim.org

KENNY CHESNEY One of the best contemporary country bills of the summer, this should be a good show from stem to stern as rising star and ace songwriter Kacey Musgraves kicks things off, followed by heartland country rockers the Eli Young Band, the explosive Eric Church, and then the pirate king himself Chesney (above), touring behind one of his strongest records in some time in “Life on a Rock.” Aug. 23-24, 5 p.m. Tickets: $60-$285. Gillette Stadium. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com
