Eric Church and Other Country Acts Make 2013 ACL Festival Lineup
Austin City Limits Music Festival has been a go-to music fest for 12 years, but for the first time ever, the festival will expand to two weekends this year, with more than 120 bands performing. 2013 ACM Album of the Year winner Eric Church will step up along with several other bands to represent country music on the 2013 ACL Festival lineup.
Church has been announced as a headliner for the festival taking place in Zilker Park this fall, and his name is alongside of other world-famous entertainers, including MUSE, Kings of Leon and Lionel Richie.
Also on ACL's lineup of country acts are Court Yard Hounds -- which is the side project of Dixie Chicks' Martie Maguire and Emily Robison -- Holly Williams, the Mavericks, the Lone Bellow and Asleep at the Wheel, among others.
The festival is set for October 4-6 and 11-13, making it the perfect autumn activity. The 'Like Jesus Does' hitmaker is also representing country music at Lollapalooza this summer, and is used to being one of the sole country acts on mostly non-country bills.
With Church's amazing live performances, it's not surprising that he's so often the face of country music. After he rocks the stage at ACL in October, he'll probably make country music lovers out of many of the attendees! See the full lineup here.
