Willie Nelson & Family, Kacey Musgraves, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real at ACL Live. Austin’s biggest New Year’s Eve draw just keeps getting more popular, to the point that it’s now a three-night affair. Willie is of course the big draw, and his “Family” band just might include unbilled ringers; last year, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons joined on guitar. A special guest is rising country star Kacey Musgraves, who took part in Willie’s Fourth of July Picnic at the Austin360 Amphitheater this year and shot a video with him for her song “Are You Sure” at the White Horse. Rounding out the bill is another extension of Willie’s family, with his son Lukas Nelson’s rock band Promise of the Real. $99-$157. 7:30 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com.

Also: More country options include Weldon Henson and Roy Heinrich at the Broken Spoke and Fingerpistol at Little Longhorn Saloon. … The Saxon Pub features local blues-rock royalty with Bill Carter and David Grissom. … Blues harmonica player Paul Oscher is the guest of the weekly Durawa show at 6 p.m. at Strange Brew.
