Watch Chris Stapleton Make His ‘Austin City Limits’ Debut
Chris Stapleton will make his Austin City Limits debut on Monday night (Oct. 23), and lucky for fans, the whole show will be streamed live on YouTube. Fans can press play on the above video when the event goes live at 9PM ET to watch.
Stapleton's Austin City Limits taping will take place at the Moody Theater in downtown Austin, Texas. After being streamed on the ACLTV YouTube channel, the performance will be featured on PBS as part of Austin City Limits' 43rd season; an exact air date has not been released, but fans can expect to see the episode early in 2018.
Austin City Limits is the longest-running TV music series in American history; the show is also the only TV series to ever be awarded the National Medal of Arts. The program, according to ACL's YouTube channel, offers its viewers "unparalleled access to featured acts in an intimate setting that provides a platform for artists to deliver inspired, memorable, full-length performances."
Stapleton recently released a brand-new song, "Millionaire," that is the lead track on From A Room: Volume 2, what will be his second record of 2017. The project features nine tracks, seven of which were co-written by Stapleton; in addition to "Millionaire," the other non-Stapleton-penned song is “Friendship," originally sung by Pops Staples and written by Homer Banks and Lester Snell.
From A Room: Volume 1 dropped on May 5, and Volume 2 is set for release on Dec. 1. More information about Stapleton's Austin City Limits performance can be found on the ACL website.
