The new studio will be in ACL Live at The Moody Theater , located in the W Hotel at 310 Willie Nelson Blvd.
The theater will be home to SiriusXM shows, musical performances, interviews and special broadcasts.
The grand opening event will feature special guests Willie Nelson, Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell and others.
Nelson’s SiriusXM channel, “Willie’s Roadhouse,” channel 56, will broadcast with host Dallas Wayne live from the new studio weekdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET, in addition to a live broadcast from the opening event.
“Radio Margaritaville,” channel 24, and “Outlaw Country,” channel 60, will also broadcast from the new Austin studio.
“Austin is one of America’s most vibrant music cities, and we are excited to expand the SiriusXM footprint there with our new studio,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM president and chief content officer. “The unpredictable but influential music scene of Austin, its artists and its style, will be represented by the amazing array of artists, and the shows and channels that will broadcast from there. Willie is an iconic and much-loved artist, who has been part of the SiriusXM family for years, and we are thrilled to have him help us open the studios.”
