Live music beacon Austin City Limits (ACL) spotlights breakout Vermont singer-songwriter Noah Kahan in a special streaming event on Wednesday, December 13 at 8pm CT/9pm ET. Newly-nominated for a 2024 Best New Artist Grammy, Kahan makes a highly-anticipated ACL debut with songs from his acclaimed Stick Season. The full-set debut was recorded live on September 25, 2023 in Austin, TX and ACL is thrilled to offer fans everywhere the one-time-only opportunity to watch the performance in its entirety on ACLTV’s YouTube Channel ahead of Kahan’s broadcast debut on the legendary series premiering February 10, 2024. ACL returns with all-new episodes on PBS on January 13, 2024 as part of the second half of the series current Season 49.
The New England native delivers a revelatory performance with a 16-song streaming set, showcasing highlights from Stick Season including the double platinum-certified title track and the platinum breakthrough smash “Dial Drunk.” The hour-plus set is unedited and Kahan regales the Austin crowd with the stories behind his confessional lyrics. The 26-year-old singer/songwriter/guitarist has struck a chord with his legions of fans through highly relatable songs that resonate about contemporary life—viral smashes that erupt into crowd singalongs. The folk-pop phenomenon has had a banner year, fostering a connection with audiences to become one of 2023’s most talked-about live acts; he will soon embark on a U.S. stadium and arena tour in March 2024. A frequent collaborator, Kahan has worked with Kacey Musgraves, Zach Bryan, Post Malone, Joy Oladokun, Hozier and more.

Over the past year, GRAMMY-nominated Vermont singer & songwriter Noah Kahan has exploded from his New England roots into the global mainstream and has been touted as one of 2023’s biggest and best new artists. At the core of his music are vulnerable lyrics and an unfiltered yet relatable honesty, as the critically acclaimed artist pens songs straight from the heart and cracks jokes with his signature, self-deprecating sense of humor. Across his three albums and an EP, Kahan has garnered global renown for his singular mix of Folk, Americana, and Rock, landing more than four billion streams, a Double Platinum Certification for his hit single “Stick Season,” and collaborations with the likes of Post Malone, Kacey Musgraves, Hozier, Lizzy McAlpine, Zach Bryan, Joy Oladokun, and more. His widely adored, Platinum-Certified album, Stick Season, is inspired by his New England roots and earliest musical inspirations—from Paul Simon to Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)—conveying a vivid representation of what he loves, fears, and struggles with most passionately. Noah embarked on his sold-out “Stick Season Tour” across North America since the album’s release last year, selling over half-a-million tickets and performing in the biggest venues of his career, with stadium and arena dates already sold-out for his 2024 world tour. In June, he released an extended version of Stick Season (We’ll All Be Here Forever), which has gone on to surpass sales of the original and shows no signs of slowing down. His latest single, “Dial Drunk,” has already amassed millions of streams, a Platinum Certification, and a slew of critical acclaim, cementing Noah Kahan as one of the most successful breakout artists of the year.
