Thank you for joining Austin City Limits and Austin PBS October 26, 2023 for our biggest night of the year at the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame. A rollicking ol' time was had as country superstar Trisha Yearwood and late, legendary singer/songwriter John Prine were inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame over a very special night of heartfelt speeches, tribute stories and sing-a-long music that celebrated their art, their journeys and their impact on the Austin City Limits legacy.
