ROAD TO AUSTIN chronicles how Austin, Texas, became the Live Music Capital of the World, dating from 1835 to present day. The film highlights early 1800s Austin, the psychedelic movement, Armadillo World Headquarters and numerous iconic musical inflection points that shaped the American musical culture of today.

Vintage photos, rare posters and never-before-seen video footage are presented with a soundtrack that truly inspires and reveals why Austin is such a magical epicenter of music. This feature-length documentary builds to a climax as the storyline weaves its way toward an all-star live concert held in 2007. The panoply of celebrity headliners includes Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Delbert McClinton, Joe Ely and more.
