Music In The Kitchen from the Author: Glenda Pierce Facemire. "Through her passion and tireless efforts, Glenda Facemire, our long-time makeup artist/stylist, has unearthed a bounty of unique and original recipes that are as creative, eclectic, and adventurous as the artists who have shaped the ACL legacy and made it the longest-running popular music series in American television history. You may not be able to play any instrument, write a hit song, or bring an audience to its feet, but there's a good chance you'll be able to recreate one of these treats in your own kitchen. Be brave, be bold . . . and let's eat!" --Terry Lickona, Producer, Austin City Limits, from the foreword With a musical mix that free ranges from progressive country to rock'n'roll, jazz, Texas swing, Latin, blues, pop, bluegrass, and world music, Austin City Limits inspires and entertains millions of fans around the globe. Created by Austin's PBS television station KLRU in 1974 and winner of countless awards (including the National Medal of the Arts from the National Endowment for the Arts) since, ACL is now the longest-running show on PBS, as well as an annual music festival that draws tens of thousands of music lovers to the "Live Music Capital of the World." As the show celebrates its thirty-fifth anniversary in 2009, Music in the Kitchen offers a unique, highly flavorful way to connect with ACL through the favorite recipes of some 130 artists who've appeared on its stage. From Willie Nelson's "Willie's Tequila-Mango Salsa" to Roseanne Cash's "Roast Lemon Chicken with Carrots and Onions," Joss Stone's "Veggie Lasagna," My Morning Jacket's "Quinoa Eggs with Cheese, Please!" and Shawn Colvin's "Swedish Pancakes," these are some of the most authentic family recipes for everything from zesty appetizers to scrumptious desserts. Not surprisingly, the recipes reflect the diverse national and international roots of the performers, who tell interesting and flavorful stories of what these dishes mean to them and their families. Glenda Facemire introduces the recipes with brief biographies that highlight not only the artists' musical careers and achievements but also their contributions to society beyond music, as well as their favorite charities. Striking color photographs of the performers make this book a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Music in the Kitchen's tasty mix of food, family stories, photos, and backstage insights collected and compiled by an ACL veteran will make you feel like you're right there on the set as you whip up these recipes in your own kitchen. Good entertainment, good eating, and good listening, y'all!

The Improbable Rise Of Redneck Rock from the Author: Jan Reid. Musical magic hit Austin, Texas, in the early 1970s. At now-legendary venues such as Threadgill's, Vulcan Gas Company, and the Armadillo World Headquarters, a host of country, rock-and-roll, blues, and folk musicians came together and created a sound and a scene that Jan Reid vividly detailed in his 1974 book, The Improbable Rise of Redneck Rock. The breadth of talent still astounds—Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, Jerry Jeff Walker, Doug Sahm, Delbert McClinton, Michael Martin Murphey, Willis Alan Ramsey, Kinky Friedman, Steve Fromholz, Bobby Bridger, Billy Joe Shaver, Marcia Ball, and Townes Van Zandt. Reid's book even inspired the nationally popular and long-running PBS series Austin City Limits, which focused attention on the trends that fed the music scene—progressive country, country rock, western swing, blues, and bluegrass among them. In this new edition, Jan Reid revitalizes his classic look at the Austin music scene. He has substantially reworked the early chapters to include musicians and musical currents from other parts of Texas that significantly contributed to the delightful convergence of popular cultures in Austin. Four new chapters and an epilogue show how the creative burst of the seventies directly spawned a new generation of talents who carry on the tradition—Lyle Lovett, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earle, Jimmy LaFave, Kelly Willis, Joe Ely, Bruce and Charlie Robison, and The Dixie Chicks.
