The Americana Music Association is auctioning off two passes for the taping of  Austin City Limits’ 35th Anniversary show with Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel, on February 24, 2009, in Austin.   Willie appeared on the original pilot, which aired in 1975, and he will be joined with Ray Benson, and  Asleep at the Wheel, who performed on the first official episode of the show.  They will perform together and celebrate release of their new album Willie and the Wheel.   

Willie and the Wheel will be touring together next month following the release of their album.   They have a show scheduled at Carl’s Corner on 2/24/09, so I don’t know how he will be in two places at once, but we’ll see.  Maybe they will tape earlier in the day.
