Middle-age? Pfft! This year, Austin City Limits turned 40 and they are still as hip, relevant, and true to music as ever. From new country royalty like Tim McGraw to the softer emo sounds of Bon Iver to the Sunday-go-to-meetin' stomp of Mavis Staples and Bonnie Raitt, no musical genre is overlooked. Like a fine Texas Tempranillo crushed out of a special varietal grown in the Hill Country, Austin City Limits only gets better with age. Here's to the next 40: Cheers, y'all!
