Eight musicians gathered casually on a gear-strewn stage Saturday night at the Trocadero. They turned knobs and tuned while the classiest act in country music, dressed in jeans and a hooded black sweatshirt, stood with them and watched. He leaned, actually, on an equipment case, and when the crowd cried out he smiled. Vince Gill set a mood and made a point. This was no ordinary show - such would have been held in a much larger hall - but an informal, almost rehearsal-like "listening party," as he called it, of Next Big Thing (MCA)

There's a herd of new cowpokes coming out of Nashville these days, and a whole lot of them sound like they spent the better part of their adolescence working up a Merle Haggard impression. Vince Gill doesn't. But the newly crowned Country Music Association male vocalist of the year does have a lot in common with Haggard. It's not that Gill fashions himself as a rebel or a fugitive - on stage he comes across as perhaps the most genuinely humble star on a circuit in which false humility is a major selling point.

Among country music stars, Vince Gill has never been a supernova. A sweet-voiced ballad and harmony singer, a guitarist esteemed by those in-the-know, and an affable guy who for years served as host of the Country Music Association awards, he's mainstream country's Mr. Reliable. Not Mr. Audacious. So what was he doing onstage at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square this week, leading a big band through a startlingly good three-hour show in support of These Days (MCA Nashville . 1/2)

'This is a very, very nice honky-tonk," said country star Vince Gill, gazing up at the burnished wood interior of the Kimmel Center Thursday night. "I had to go buy some new clothes. " As it turned out, Gill, who wore a black suit and open-necked shirt for the occasion, needn't have dressed up at all. As classical music aficionados in evening dress filed into the Kimmel's intimate Perelman Theater to see pianist Richard Goode, Gill's fans strode past them to the symphony-scaled Verizon Hall clad in Western wear and Brad Paisley tees.

It was Vince Gill all the way. The 36-year-old sensitive balladeer and consummate musician cohosted the 27th annual Country Music Association Awards show, which was broadcast live last night on network TV from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and won four awards. Gill nabbed the night's first trophy - winning song of the year for "I Still Believe in You," which he cowrote with John Barlow Jarvis. And he won the last - and biggest - when he took home the entertainer-of-the-year award.

From the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River, Camden Mayor Arnold Webster yesterday heralded what another honcho called the "new dawn of concert promotion in the Philadelphia area. " And he did it with a Symbol. Or rather, Symbol Man. At a news conference to announce artists booked at Camden's new Waterfront Entertainment Centre this summer, Webster began his list with a surprise: the Artist Formerly Known as Prince. TAFKAP - who last played Philadelphia as plain old Prince in 1988 - won't be the first to play the 25,000 capacity indoor-outdoor facility, which opens on Memorial Day weekend.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - For a guy who sang so many sad songs, George Jones left behind a lot of laughs. There was more humor than sadness at Jones' funeral yesterday at the Grand Ole Opry House as thousands gathered in Nashville - some arriving hours before sunrise - to pay their respects to the man whose voice has defined country music for more than half a century. Friend after friend related stories of Jones' kindness, his love for his widow, Nancy, who's credited with helping him survive his personal demons later in life, and the funny little moments that will stick with them always.

    AUSTIN, Texas - Every year, it seems the South by Southwest music festival can't possibly get any bigger - and each year it does. In 2012, Bruce Springsteen came to SXSW, and to keep attendees from lining up a day in advance, a lottery was held. This year, that distribution system is being employed for at least three shows: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds on Wednesday (also featuring Waxahatchee, the nom de rock of Philadelphia songwriter Katie Crutchfield)

When Rodney Crowell first teamed up with poet and memoirist Mary Karr, he figured the collaboration might yield a couple of songs he could use on an album of his own. "But it caught on so fast and we produced so much in such a short time, I said, 'You know, we're making an album here,' " the 62-year-old singer and songwriter says over the phone while heading east from Columbus, Ohio. Indeed, they were. The terrific result is Kin: Songs by Mary Karr and Rodney Crowell . Produced by Joe Henry, the 10 songs are sung by Crowell, Norah Jones, Vince Gill, Lucinda Williams, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, and Crowell's former wife Rosanne Cash.

Bruce Springsteen Like the titular wrecking ball of his latest album, Bruce Springsteen's tour seems to be gaining momentum and power the farther it has traveled - starting in the States, moving to Europe, and now swinging back to North America. By most accounts, and video evidence, the Wrecking Ball material has been well integrated into a show that packs a lot of fan favorites and, at its best, manages to be both tight and freewheelingly loose. For the outdoor shows he's now playing with his mighty E Street Band (we still wish he was indoors)

WHILE the outdoor summer concert season starts up in May, many of us aren't in the mood to get out and party till July — when school's out, the workload gets lighter and vacation time rolls around. And this summer, the concert pickings are so good and plentiful, we've been forced to boil down our "best-of" selection to a dozen shows and destinations, thereby allowing us to slide in some multiple night 'n' day entries. Showgoers — start your engines!   Drive a little, groove a lot When the concert setting's right — wide open and leafy green — you can't beat the superior sound and (otherwise)
