Country music fans are known for their loyalty — they'll support almost everybody in the genre. So when officials at CityPlace in West Palm Beach booked a series of three concerts for summer/fall weeknights, you can't blame them for bringing acts with at least a hint of a twang.

And the fourth annual series has some pretty good talent, especially considering admission to the shows is free. Jerrod Niemann ("Lover, Lover," "One More Drinkin' Song") is first up, at 6 p.m. Tuesday. While Niemann's songs play on country radio, he's more the type who appeals to iPod Shuffle crowd, folks who have merged a buffet of various styles of music into one playlist. The 33-year-old Kansas native's 2012 album, "Free the Music," includes wisps of reggae, Dixieland jazz and honky-tonk, in addition to the country and country-rock.

The Samantha Russell Band, a group from Jupiter, will open the show.

Like Niemann, the two other main performers have had some success: Joe Nichols ("Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off," "Gimme That Girl") will play July 24, and Chris Cagle ("What Kinda Gone") will perform Oct. 22.
