Tim McGraw, Toby Keith and Maxwell lead best concerts in Las Vegas for the week of Dec. 5

This week is known as rodeo week in Las Vegas because the cowboys (and girls) will be in town in full force for the National Finals Rodeo. As expected that means that some of country music’s biggest names will be gracing the bills, but there will be a little something for everyone to ensure that every tourist and local is entertained. So, cowfolk or not, come kick up your boots for a night (or two) on the town.
