Big hearts and big personalities dominate this weekend's entertainment lineup in Las Vegas.

Whether you're in the mood for contact sports or just a little country (after a little drive to Primm) or soul, there's something in store for everyone.

Here’s a look at our weekend best bets:

    • Dolly Parton performs the song "Hello God" with the help of a church choir at the 2002 Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2002, in Nashville.

      Saturday: Dolly Parton at Star of the Desert Arena

      Don’t miss your chance to see country’s living legend in person Saturday night, as Dolly graces Primm with her presence for an evening of entertainment as only she can deliver it. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $59 to $99 — after all, it costs a lot of money to look that cheap, as Dolly would say.

    • The USA Eagles rugby team outside Planet Hollywood on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, in Las Vegas.

      Friday - Sunday: USA Sevens Rugby at Sam Boyd Stadium

      Ruggers return to Las Vegas this weekend to go head-to-head — literally — on the field at Sam Boyd Stadium. Sixteen teams will face off in 44 matches in this fast-paced international competition. Ticket prices and match times vary.

    • The Civilians stay true to their roots—think influences like TSOL, The Damned and Cock Sparrer. They play Double Down on July 6.

      Sunday: Love Has No Bounds Benefit Concert at Hard Rock Live!

      Pinups, punks and patriots join together this weekend in this benefit show for military family nonprofit Operation Homefront. The event, which begins at 5 p.m., features local bands Love Vendetta and The Civilians, an art sale and a photo booth featuring the vintage-styled calendar girls of Pinup for Patriots Nevada. The festivities start at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $15.

    • Jay Mohr arrives at the 2010 NHL Awards at the Palms Casino Resort, Wednesday, June 23, 2010 in Las Vegas.

      Friday - Sunday: Jay Mohr at South Point

      “Jerry Maguire” star and “Saturday Night Live” alum Jay Mohr returns to South Point Showroom this weekend for three nights of standup and signature impressions — and maybe a little sports talk from the “Jay Mohr Sports” host. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $35.

    • Radiance Soul and R&B group

      Friday - Saturday: Soul Men and Lady Soul at Smith Center

      Soul vocal quartet Spectrum and their sister group Radiance return to Cabaret Jazz this weekend to lead two high-energy shows celebrating Motown and R&B. Fans can expect renditions of classics by the Temptations, the Supremes, the Four Tops, Donna Summer and more. Tickets are $34 to $37, and shows start at 7 p.m.
