Lucinda Williams and Wilco join Austin City Limits Hall of Fame

Austin City Limits has announced the 2021 inductees into its Austin City Limits Hall of Fame which include Americana icons Wilco, Lucinda Williams, and Texas singer-songwriter Alejandro Escovedo. There were no 2020 inductees because of the pandemic but a ceremony this year with still-unannounced live performances will take place on October 28th from the city.

Both Williams and Wilco have each appeared four times on the long-running live-music series, ACL, while Escovedo has appeared five times. Williams made their debut appearance on the show in 1990; Wilco in 2000; and Escovedo in 1983 with his band Rank and File.

The honour follows the news earlier this year that Williams is recovering from a stroke she suffered in November 2020. She’s thankfully expected to make a full recovery and recently played at a tribute concert to ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons in Nashville. She is hitting the road for a US tour with Jason Isbell this summer.
