Jason Michael Carroll

Saturday 2 P.M. CATCH IT IF YOU CAN Jason Michael Carroll. (left) Carroll's recently released first album became the highest-charting country debut since Billy Ray Cyrus' in 1992 — and there wasn't even a dance attached. Instead, Carroll made the most of his resonant and woody baritone to break through with an oblique tale of child abuse, "Alyssa Lies." (Mane Stage, 1:50-2:25) The Grascals. A favorite of Dolly Parton's, the Grammy-nominated group took just a year to move from being the International Bluegrass Music Assn.'s emerging artist of the year to its top honor, entertainer of the year. (Appaloosa Stage, 2:30-3:20) Cowboy Nation. See "Critic's Pick." (Mustang Stage, 1:50-2:20) ALSO: Jamie O'Neal. Before Keith Urban clicked in the U.S., O'Neal came out of Australia with a couple of No. 1 hits, "There Is No Arizona" and "When I Think About Angels." She's been chasing angels ever since.(Mane Stage, 2:45-3:30)
