Austin City Limits has announced that nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow and Texas legend Joe Ely will be added to the latest class of the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame.
The 2022 ACL Hall of Fame inductees will be saluted at a star-studded ceremony to be held on October 27 at ACL’s studio home, ACL Live at The Moody Theater in downtown Austin.
More information about guest performers, presenters and additional guest stars will be announced before the event, according to ACL.
Musical highlights and inductions from the ceremony will air on PBS later this year.
Tickets to the public will be on sale on June 24 at 10 am CT at acltv.com/hall-of-fame. Sponsor packages are available at acltv.com/hall-of-fame.
All proceeds from the event will go to Austin PBS.
Sharing her reaction to joining the ranks of the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame, Crow said, “I have always loved Austin City Limits. Some of my favorite performances have been on that show. I am so humbled to be honored by such an iconic and prestigious program. It is a dream come true for me to be inducted into the ACL Hall of Fame.”
Joe Ely said he is really honored and humbled to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. He recalled that he first played Austin City Limits in 1980.
“It was more a local show then, but it kept getting a wider and wider audience,” Ely remembers. “It’s since become one of the most important live performance shows on television simply because they’ve always maintained the highest quality production and brought in great talent.”
