Austin City Limits is only a couple days away from their lineup release and the speculation for the headliners couldn't be higher. One of the common rumors for Austin City Limits 2017 was that Sir Paul McCartney would be playing ACL for the first time. This is now no longer an option due to additional tour dates he has announced in Brazil. Technically he would still be available for Austin City Limits Weekend 1, but ACL doesn't do this with headliners. Sometimes there are acts who will play one weekend of ACL and not the other, but not someone of Paul McCartney's level. Sadly I would cross him off the headliner list for ACL 2017, sorry to disappoint folks (or maybe this cheers you up!). Austin City Limits will release their lineup early this Thursday morning so the wait is almost over!
