    Appearing on the list as the second best moment of ACL is Gary Clark Jr.

    No. 2, Best Reason to Care About the Blues Again: Gary Clark Jr.

    Gary Clark Jr. opened up his set with a little bit of virtuosic noodling, as if to inform the audience that, yeah, he's got chops. As soon as he'd established that, though, the Austin native rode a riff that didn't quit into "When My Train Pulls In," a stomping blues that owed at least as much to the Black Keys as it did to the memory of Stevie Ray Vaughn. As a guitarist, he's not afraid to solo, but it never feels like showing off. And Clark's songs, especially the uptempo throwback "Don't Owe You A Thing" and the heavyweight set-closer "Bright Lights," are just too damn good to ever get boring. We'd love this guy even if he didn't make his guitar sing the way that he does.
