The first Austin City Limits Hall of Fame Induction ceremony brought the show back to its original venue for one night: KLRU’s Studio 6A on the University of Texas campus. … Held on Saturday, April 26, … the Hall of Fame’s first class of inductees included Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, famed UT football coach Darrell Royal and show creator Bill Arhos.
… The stage heated up with a series of impressive guitar solos from artists honoring Vaughan & Double Trouble. Double Trouble’s Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon and Reese Wynans shared the stage with Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Mike Farris, Doyle Bramhall II, Robert Randolph, Eric Zapata and Buddy Guy. Stevie Ray’s brother Jimmie, who is on tour in Australia, appeared in a video honoring his younger brother.
