ACL offers viewers unparalleled access to a diverse range of artists in an intimate setting that encourages inspired and memorable full-length performances. The program is taped live before a concert audience at ACL Live at The Moody Theater in downtown Austin. At 41 years, ACL is the longest-running music series in American television history and remains the only TV series to ever be awarded the National Medal of Arts. ACL has also been designated an official Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Landmark and received a rare institutional Peabody Award in 2012.

ACL is produced by KLRU-TV and funding is provided in part by Budweiser, the Austin Convention Center Department, Dell and HomeAway. Additional funding is provided by the Friends of Austin City Limits.
