Eight-time Grammy-winning artist Dan Auerbach makes his solo debut on Austin City Limits performing tunes from his newest release Waiting On A Song, which NPR calls “a batch of sparkling pop songs that’s sweet, breezy.”

Auerbach has performed on ACL twice before with his band The Black Keys. He will be backed tonight by some of Nashville’s finest musicians — Bobby Wood, Gene “Bubba” Chrisman, Pat McLaughlin, Dave Roe, Russ Pahl, Ray Jacildo, Ashley Wilcoxson, Leisa Hans, Nick Bockrath from Cage the Elephant — and featuring legendary bluesman Robert Finley.

Waiting On A Song is Auerbach’s follow-up to 2009’s Keep It Hid and is his love letter to Nashville. As such, he recruited some o Nashville’s most respected players to write and record his latest. “Living in Nashville has definitely changed the way I think about music and the way that I record it,” he says about working with his heroes. “I didn’t have all of these resources before. I am working with some of the greatest musicians that ever lived.” The always-understated musician is happy to have his own version of the Wrecking Crew at his Easy Eye Studio in south Nashville. “Even with the success I’ve had, it’s only just now that I’m finally finding myself,” Auerbach says. “I called the album Waiting On A Song because I’ve been waiting my whole life to be able to do this. And now I have. And none of us ever want it to stop.”
