Austin City Limits extends a hearty congratulations to ACL Hall of Fame legends Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow on being voted in for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year. Few artists have had the impact on music of Willie Nelson, who expanded the boundaries of country music – indeed, of American music. Outside of her bucket of hits, Sheryl Crow is simply one of the most respected singer/songwriters of the last thirty years, as beloved by her peers as by her fans. Willie Nelson was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame in the inaugural class in 2014 and Sheryl Crow was welcomed into the ACL Hall of Fame in 2022.
Shout-outs to their fellow inductees Kate Bush, Missy Elliott, George Michael, Rage Against the Machine, and the Spinners. Also being honored this year are guitarist Link Wray and DJ Kool Herc with the Musical Influence Award, Chaka Khan, producer Al Kooper, and songwriter Bernie Taupin for Musical Excellence, and Soul Train host Don Cornelius with the Ahmet Ertegun Award for industry professionals. The honorees will be celebrated in the Rock Hall’s induction ceremony and ceremony this fall in NYC. Congratulations y’all!
