Featured Live Stream News Taping Announcement

ACL taping: Brandy Clark

Austin City Limits stellar summer of Season 47 tapings continues with the highly anticipated debut taping of acclaimed singer/songwriter Brandy Clark on August 3 at 8pm CT. The taping will also be live streamed, as ACL offers fans worldwide a unique opportunity to watch the ACL taping live in its entirety at this location.  

An eight-time Grammy nominee and CMA Award-winner, Clark is one of her generation’s most respected and celebrated songwriters and musicians. Her most recent Grammy-nominated album, last year’s Your Life is a Record, was produced by Jay Joyce and features Clark’s most personal songwriting to date. The widely-praised record landed on several best of the year lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Variety and Slate, who declares Clark, “one of the greatest living short-story-songwriters in country (which really means in any genre)…I don’t think there’s a 2020 country or country-adjacent album that outdoes Clark’s,” while The New Yorker declares, “No one is writing better country songs than Brandy Clark is…Your Life is a Record is the best-sounding album that she’s released,” and Variety proclaims, “one of the very best singer-songwriters contemporary country has.” The hitmaker, whose songs include Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two” and Hailey Whitter’s “Ten Year Town,” also recently released a special deluxe edition of Your Life is a Record in honor of the album’s one-year anniversary, which features six new songs including “Remember Me Beautiful” and collaborations with Brandi Carlile and Lindsey Buckingham. In addition to being nominated for Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance at the 63rd Grammy Awards, Clark was recently awarded Outstanding Music Artist at the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards. Clark adds another accolade to her shelf with her ACL debut. 

Join us here on August 3 at 8pm CT for this performance by Brandy Clark. The broadcast episode will air this fall on PBS as part of our upcoming Season 47.

Due to implemented safety measures and the ongoing uncertainty from COVID-19, there is currently no public giveaway for access to attend upcoming ACL tapings. With the safety of the artists, crew and guests top of mind, the limited studio audience will be prioritized to our donors who make Austin City Limits possible and who have continued to support the show during this challenging time and beyond. We will expand the audience as safety measures allow and will post giveaway opportunities on as available. Thank you for your patience as we work to reopen safely. We can’t wait to get back to the music with our supporters and fans. We have more exciting tapings coming up as part of our Season 47, and more information on those shows will be forthcoming.
