During Thursday night of RISE week a tribute to Lloyd Maines was held at ACL (it was unrelated to RISE – but hey – there is a lot of stuff going on in Austin – especially related to music). The concert was performed at the Austin City Limits – Lloyd has been on the ACL stage more than any other performer.

The Dixie Chicks also performed – Natalie Maines is Lloyd’s daughter!
