Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel will tape a segement for Austin City Limits tonight in Austin. 

In 1975, the Austin City Limits pilot hit the PBS airwaves. This pilot, taped in late 1974, starred Texas country hero Willie Nelson.   In 1976, the first full ACL season debuted, with a premiere episode featuring Austin’s Western swing revivalists Asleep at the Wheel.   Now we bring the two pioneers together in studio 6A to kick off our 35th anniversary taping season.

Because Willie and the Wheel have so many friends, we won’t be able to offer any Space Available tickets for this taping.
