Austin City Limits presents highlights from the Americana Music Festival’s 15th Annual Americana Honors & Awards at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

Hosted by Jim Lauderdale, the show features the Americana All-Star Band — led by Buddy Miller – and showcases some of the biggest stars and rising talents of Americana today.

The episode features once-in-a-lifetime moments as artists pay tribute to their lost heroes. The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir performs in honor of the late Merle Haggard and Alison Krauss leads a moving homage to the late Dr. Ralph Stanley. Steve Earle honors Guy Clark, another Americana icon lost earlier this year. Performances by George Strait, Bonnie Raitt, Jason Isbell, Margo Price, The Lumineers, Dwight Yoakam and more round out the hour-long episode.
