It would be tempting to dismiss 16-year-old country singer Lila McCann, whose debut album is rapidly approaching gold status, as a LeAnn Rimes clone manufactured quickly by a record label. But it would be wrong. Though McCann's debut album, "Lila," was released within a year of Rimes' phenomenal breakthrough success in 1996, it was hardly rushed into stores to exploit the teen market unearthed by her 15-year-old rival. The native of Steilacoom, Wash.

During a season in which the Rose Bowl game will not automatically feature teams from the Pacific 10 and Big Ten conferences, Saturday's match-up between UCLA and Ohio State is a fair substitute. At least the Buckeyes believe so. "It's going to be very exciting for us," tailback Jonathan Wells said. "I'm really looking forward to it." Ohio State has played 13 games at the Rose Bowl. Each time, the game was the Rose Bowl game.

But that future seemed imminent at KZLA Country Bash 2001, a daylong festival Sunday at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater featuring nearly a dozen acts, most of which played Whitman Sampler-sized sets running barely longer than Warhol's allotted time span.

Love doesn't give you second chances. Betrayal sucks. KZLA-FM (93.9) is a great radio station. These were just some of the lessons imparted by the performers at KZLA's second annual Country Cookout on Sunday at the Universal Amphitheatre, a roundup of current hit-makers for fans with short attention spans. The organizers of the event clearly wanted to conjure a county fair vibe.

Standing 110 feet high, it was definitely a big wheel, but not the traditional Ferris variety--yet. Early on the day before the opening of the Ventura County Fair, the seats had yet to be hung. But everything was falling into place Tuesday as hundreds worked in a last-minute push--at tasks ranging from painting signs to assembling rides--to prepare for the 17,000 people expected for today's 11 a.m. opening.
