Rock singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, whose new album “Prisoner” has been widely acclaimed and entered the Billboard charts in the top 10 upon its release, has been added to the South by Southwest lineup as the 11 p.m. headliner of an ACL Live show on Friday, March 17.
It’s the second year in a row Adams has appeared at SXSW. Last year he shared a bill at the JW Marriott ballroom with the Avett Brothers, who also are returning to SXSW this year. (Their main showcase is also at ACL Live, on Wednesday at 11 p.m.)
