Austin City Limits Cancels Hall of Fame Inductions, but 46th Season to Start on Schedule

-

Austin City Limits has announced it has canceled its 2020 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame Induction & Celebration, slated for October, but will host the gala fundraiser for the long-running series and Austin PBS (KLRU-TV’s new name), on Oct. 28, 2021. Inductees for 2020 had not yet been announced.

The live-to-tape TV show, which holds the record as the longest-running music series on American television, will begin its 46th season this fall with a mix of new, already-taped episodes and selections from its archives.

Producers are also compiling “The Best of Austin City Limits Hall of Fame,” a special episode slated to air nationally on PBS stations this winter. Since starting its Hall of Fame in 2014, Austin City Limits has inducted a range of artists including Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel, Flaco Jiménez, Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble. The event is held at ACL Live at the Moody Theater, the downtown Austin venue where the TV show is taped.
