Lyle Lovett helps bid farewell to iconic ACL studio
It's a wrap. After 36 years, Austin City Limits retired its legendary Studio 6A last week (Nov. 8) with a performance by Lyle Lovett, whose first appearance was as a backup singer to Nanci Griffith in 1985. The series will start the 2011 season in the new—and much roomier—Moody Theater in downtown Austin, Texas. Here's a sample of the wide press coverage the event received, including remembrances from Scott Newton, the show's photographer, who started shooting the action in 1978.
