Pop music: WPOC Weekend in the Country

Country fans can decide which day’s supporting acts work best for them, but the two headliners remain the same. That’s a good thing, because Brantley Gilbert and especially Sam Hunt (pictured) are stars leading the genre to intriguing heights. They regularly ignore at-times rigid conventions, and the results are as fascinating as they are catchy. 2:30 p.m. Oct. 3-4 at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. $55-$75. merriweathermusic.com.— WC
