This One's for America. Whether you agree with this country's military decisions or not, the United States as we know it wouldn't exist without those who sacrificed their lives to give us the freedom we enjoy today. The Sean Hannity Freedom Concert celebrates this freedom at the BOK Center, 200 S Denver Ave., while giving back to the families of killed and severely disabled service members. Musicians Lynrd Skynyrd, the Charlie Daniels Band and Michael W. Smith will join conservative talk show host Sean Hannity for the show. Partial proceeds go to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund, which helps further education for the children of those who gave it their all. Doors open at 6pm, and the show starts at 7pm. Tickets are $51. For more information, visit bokcenter.com.
Country Tune. If you prefer old classic country to what you'll find this century, you might want to check out Robbie Fulks at the Tulsa PAC, 110 E. 2nd St., this evening.

Robbie Gjersoe and The Trishas join him in the John H. Williams Theatre for the show at 7pm. Tickets are $22. To find out more about the show, go to tulsapac.com.
