2021 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame

Induction & Celebration

Presented by

PNC Bank.

Thursday, October 28, 2021

Following last year’s pandemic-related pre-emption, we’re beyond thrilled for the return of our biggest event/party of the season: the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame Induction & Celebration Presented by PNC Bank on October 28, 2021. We couldn’t be more proud to induct three longtime ACL favorites, all trailblazing artists who have all appeared on the show multiple times: renowned alt-country band Wilco, Austin rock icon Alejandro Escovedo, and the truly legendary singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams.

We had a grand time celebrating some of our favorite performers on our favorite night of the year. Joined by a diverse and impressive line-up of musicians - Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Doe, Sheila E., Lenny Kaye, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner, Rosanne Cash, Bill Callahan, Terry Allen and Alex Ruiz took to the stage to pay tribute to these fantastic figures. Read more about the evening’s celebration here.

As part of the celebration, we’re also excited to announce the formal unveiling of PNC Plaza at ACL Live. Our new partner PNC Bank has made a five-year commitment as the Official Bank of Austin City Limits.
