Willie Nelson and late blues legend Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Trouble will be the inaugural inductees into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame in Texas.

Organizers of the TV concert series have set up the Hall of Fame to mark the 40th anniversary of the Austin City Limits program.

Show creator Bill Arhos will also be inducted alongside Nelson and Vaughan at a gala on April 29.

Buddy Guy, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris and Nelson’s son Lukas will perform at the event.

The first Hall of Fame honorees all have Texas roots.

The 40th season of Austin City Limits will begin with a Nine Inch Nails concert, which will air in America on April 5.

Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor says, “We’ve waited a long time to do anything like this. We never thought we’d see the day when Nine Inch Nails would set foot on the ACL stage.”
