On the air for over 40 years, Austin City Limits is the longest running music program on television. Originally intended to celebrate the Texas music scene—indigenous blues, western swing, Tejano, country, and rock—over the years the stage has been home to the best of everything from everywhere, including jazz, folk, and alts of every persuasion. Keith Maitland’s valentine to ACL goes behind the scenes to tell the story of the show’s evolution and features performances and interviews with the likes of Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ray Charles, Beck, Alabama Shakes, Radiohead, Bonnie Raitt, Wilco, Lyle Lovett, and many more.
