2023 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame
Induction & Celebration
Thursday, October 26, 2023
Austin PBS is excited to announce the return of the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame Induction & Celebration on October 26, 2023. Now in its 9th year, the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame welcomes two extraordinary honorees: country music star and culinary mastermind Trisha Yearwood and folk music icon, the late John Prine. Featuring a star-studded line-up of tribute artists, this year’s ceremony will be one to remember.
Multiple GRAMMY®, CMA® and ACM® Award-winner Trisha Yearwood debuted on Austin City Limits Season 17 in 1992 and went on to make two additional headlining appearances in 1996 and 2000 and returned in Season 41 in 2015 as a guest of Don Henley.
Late singer-songwriter John Prine appeared regularly on ACL throughout his celebrated five-decade career. Prine made his first Austin City Limits appearance in 1978 with headlining appearances in 1988, 1992 and 1996 and returned for his eighth and final appearance forty years later in Season 44 in 2018.
All-star guests will handle induction honors on this epic night: Don Henley will induct Trisha Yearwood; renowned actor Ethan Hawke will induct John Prine posthumously. A parade of music luminaries including Henley, Jo Dee Messina, Ronnie Dunn, Tyler Childers, Allison Russell, Kurt Vile and Tommy Prine will take part in saluting the honorees with one-of-a-kind music performances and intimate tributes.
