Tonight, PBS will air Nashville 2.0: The Rise of Americana, an hour-long documentary on one of our favorite genres of music. They’ll keep the party going on Saturday with Austin City Limits’ ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival 2013, featuring musical highlights from this year’s Americana Honors and Awards.
We’ve been given permission to spoil the ending — an all-star, celebratory rendition of Rodney Crowell’s “Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight” featuring Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Ketch Secor, Rosanne Cash, Shovels and Rope, Tift Merritt, Billy Bragg, and the Civil Wars’ Joy Williams. They’re backed by an impressive house band (Don Was, Larry Campbell, Buddy Miller, The McCrary Sisters) and host Jim Luaderdale.
Read our recaps of this year’s Americana Music Festival, and check out the set list for Saturday’s show (note: for those who live in Nashville, PBS will debut the episode tonight).
