Austin City Limits

Show Summary

Austin City Limits has established a reputation for showcasing great live musical performances. The show's studio allows for intimate and engaging performances by independent, mainstream, critically acclaimed, and popular artists. The show was originally created to display the emerging talents of the alternative country music scene in Austin, TX in the 1970s. Soon, however, the show branched out to include all types of music: alt country, pop rock, bluegrass and zydeco are just a few. Many television historians attribute MTV, CMT and VH1'a success to the contributions of this groundbreaking musical series. On Wednesday, November 12th, 2003; President Bush presented ACL with the National Medal of the Arts. ACL was the first television show (ever) to win the award.

    I cannot believe ACL doesn't get more viewers than it does. TO spend an intimate hour with some of the most influential bands and artists of our time FOR FREE!!!! This is a simple decision. No where else can you watch Beck one week, Radiohead, the next, and some band I've never heard of the next week. The sound quality is TOPs. It's never blaring. It's always clear sounding as it can be. Bands who are tight can get up there and come close to a near studio sound to their performance and if not studio we have some of the best recorded live performances from this show. I've always felt younger people always mistook like when I was young for a country mostly show, boy was I ever wrong years a decade ago or so ago and started to watch it. Just not long ago, Reznore and Nine Inch Nails opened up the season for them. It is both an honor for the celebs who perform and for the show and venue. People need to get the word out and let folks know about how much they need to watch this show and buy the DVD collections, awesome stuff like this free for all! Thanks for listening to me rant. be well and Good Care - MediaGodmoreless
