A Song For You: The Austin City Limits Story

Featuring a bevy of pivotal performances by everyone from Willie Nelson and Beck to Ray Charles and Radiohead, A Song For You: The Austin City Limits Story is the ultimate backstage pass to the longest-running music show in television history, recounting ACL's 40-year evolution from local outlaw country Texas showcase to a required stopping point for superstars, cult bands, and up-and-comers from just about every corner of popular music. The film gives an inside look at the people who built the series into the institution it is today and features interviews with many of the music innovators and legends who have made history on the ACL stage. Set against the colorful backdrop of Austin, Texas, A Song For You provides a candid look at central moments in the program's four decades, including the challenges and highlights in the evolution of the Peabody Award-winning series. Following its world premiere at South by Southwest, the GRAMMY Museum is pleased to present a special sneak peek of A Song For You: The Austin City Limits Story, followed by an intimate panel discussion with  ACL Executive Producer and GRAMMY Awards telecast co-producer Terry Lickona, hosted by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation.
