Another honor for the great Sheryl Crow. The country music icon is going to be inducted, along with Joe Ely, into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame.

Over the years, Sheryl Crow has been there for some great moments in ACL history. Her debut on the program was in 1997 and she came back in 2004 for another go-around. In 2014, to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the show, the singer-songwriter joined as a host.

Sheryl Crow is Excited

So, she’s been there for two of her own very amazing performances, and she’s been part of one of the biggest celebrations that ACL has ever had. That more than qualifies her for this. Besides, she has a real passion for the mission of bringing music to the masses on such a great stage.

“I have always loved Austin City Limits. Some of my favorite performances have been on that show,” the singer said. “I am so humbled to be honored by such an iconic and prestigious program. It is a dream come true for me to be inducted into the ACL Hall of Fame.”

This is just the second time that only two inductees have been chosen in a class. Sheryl Crow and Joe Ely will be celebrated at the induction ceremony on October 27.
