On Jan. 2, 1975, Austin City Limits premiered on PBS. The show’s inaugural episode, which aired as part of a PBS pledge drive, featured Willie Nelson as its very first guest.

ACL‘s original first episode actually taped on Oct. 13, 1974, and included an appearance by B.W. Stevenson. But when that recording was found unusable, Nelson became the first guest on the now-iconic show, singing “Good Hearted Woman,” “Whiskey River,” “Okie From Muskogee” and “Will The Circle Be Unbroken.”

Austin City Limits was so popular that it was quickly made into a regular series. Although the show was designed to focus on Texas music, including Texas swing and Tejano music, it quickly became known as a place for talent of all genres to perform. The Foo Fighters, Alabama Shakes, Björk, Bruce Hornsby, Suzanne Vega and Nine Inch Nails are among the many, many artists who have graced the ACL stage.

In 2014, Austin City Limits aired a star-studded prime-time special in honor of its 40th anniversary, hosted by Jeff Bridges, Sheryl Crow and Matthew McConaughey. Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt and Kris Kristofferson were among the performers during the two-hour show.

“This is a huge milestone for us,” ACL executive producer Terry Lickona said. “This show captures the essence of what Austin City Limits is all about. We set the bar high for this celebration, and we exceeded it! The lineup of talent speaks volumes about the respect that artists have for ACL.”

Austin City Limits is the longest-running music program in television history to date.

Also in 2014, Austin City Limits launched the ACL Hall of Fame. Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Asleep at the Wheel, Loretta Lynn, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt are among the inductees so far.

More information on Austin City Limits, including a TV schedule, can be found on their website.

I miss getting to see these two amazing artists sing this song together, when the crowd goes wild when Willie comes on stage during Ray’s set at Picnic, just as it starting to cool down at end of afternoon, and everyone gets revived after being in the Texas sun all day. Magical and refreshing.
