PBS' ACL TO AIR AMERICANA AWARDS

Set your VCRs, kids: A special edition of Austin City Limits featuring performances from the Americana Honors & Awards ceremony will air 11/19 on PBS stations.

The hourlong ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival 2016 will feature performances by George Strait & Jim Lauderdale, Bob Weir, The Lumineers, Bonnie Raitt, Jason Isbell, Steve Earle, Dwight Yoakam, Margo Price and others from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

“If you can taste the dirt through your ears, that is Americana,” says Americana Music Association Executive Director Jed Hilly while taking a healthy swig of local artisnal moonshine. “It is music that is derived or inspired by American roots traditions.”

High Five Entertainment co-produced the show with Martin Fischer and ACL Executive Producer Terry Lickona. The new season of ACL starts in January.
