In releasing "57th and 9th," all those public relations people and music reporters kept talking to Sting about how this was his first rock album in years. But to Sting, the former frontman of influential British export The Police, it didn't exactly feel that way.

Every touring artist panders to the city he’s performing in, but Sting seemed genuine when he called Austin “the hippest town in America” at the top of his set at ACL Live on Sunday. “I owe a lot to Austin,” he said, explaining that an Austin station “LBJ” (presumably KLBJ) was the first radio outlet in America to play the Police’s single “Roxanne” in 1979.
