Festival season is BACK.

We’re finally rounding the corner on the music-less, festival-less, concert-less waste of an existence we’ve had to endure for the past year or so.

Concerts are back, live music is back, festivals are back, and more importantly for the good people of Texas… Austin City Limits Festival is back.

And they’re bringing THE KING.

Austin City Limits has officially announced the 2021 lineup slated for this fall, and it’s anchored by the King of Country Music, the King of Texas, the tequila sippin’, ropin’ and ridin’, starched jeans wearin’, baddest SOB to ever walk the face of the Earth… Mr. George Strait.

George Strait in Austin, Texas…. hold onto your asses people.

Other headliners include Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish and more, but we’re also gonna get a little Jon Pardi, some Tanya Tucker, Charley Crockett, and more.

It goes without saying, but the announcement just about broke the internet.

I mean, Twitter went bonkers:

And you occasionally have a bozo like this…

Get it together, man…

And for old time’s sake, let’s throw it back to Austin City Limits 1989.
