It will be a rare George Strait appearance in Lincoln, who last played the Capital City during a Nebraska State Fair concert at Bob Devaney Sports Center in the 1980s.

“As a group, we had always gotten together physically to write,” said Nobody’s Girl singer-songwriter BettySoo, who’s based out of Austin. “This (pandemic) definitely put our group writing on hold. We haven’t been in the same room since February 2020. Much of the music we write for our group is based on staggering layers of vocal harmonies or counter-melodies, and doing it in person and in real time is a big part of how that stuff comes together. Given the circumstances, we stayed focused on the songs we have, thinking through how we want to present them live once we were finally able to tour and sing in harmony again.” The trio’s full-length debut album, “Nobody’s Girl,” will be released on July 30. Fans may stay in touch with the group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/nobodysgirlmusic) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/nobodysgirlofficial).

Austin-based singer-songwriter Bonnie Whitmore has the kind of plaintive vocals that convey a song’s meaning as much as her introspective lyrics. On her new album “Last Will & Testament,” the musician deals with rape culture (“Asked For It”), gun-related rampages (“Time To Shoot”) and the importance of self-care (“Fine”). The daughter of an airline pilot and an opera singer — and the sister of Eleanor Whitmore of the band The Mastersons — Whitmore said there was always music in her household. And thanks to her father’s job, she grew accustomed to traveling constantly, which prepared her for a life of touring. To learn more about Whitmore, check out her website (www.bonniewhitmore.com).
