Lyle Lovett, Buddy Guy and Shawn Colvin will be inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame for the long-running television program's sixth annual induction ceremony at ACL Live on Oct. 24, executive producer Terry Lickona announced before Gary Clark Jr.'s taping of the show on Tuesday evening.

Established in 2014, the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame honors “the legacy of legendary artists and key individuals who have played a vital part in the pioneering music series,” per the program’s official press information. Details about guest performers and presenters at the October concert will be announced later.

Counting guest spots, Lovett has been on the show 13 times, more than any other artist except Willie Nelson. His first appearance came in 1987; the most recent was for the 2010-2011 season and was the last episode taped at the show's original Studio 6A home on the University of Texas campus.

Guy has been on the show four times, the first in 1991 and the most recent just this past year. Both Guy and Lovett took part in the first ACL Hall of Fame show, saluting inaugural inductees Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Colvin also made her first "Austin City Limits" appearance in 1991 and has done two other episodes in addition to appearing as a guest vocalist on many other artists' shows.
