Thirty five years ago, Austin City Saloon in Lexington, Kentucky, opened its doors. Each weekend, they have entertained central Kentucky with pure honky tonk music live on stage. This past weekend, they hosted their 2nd Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to give thanks to those that have helped Austin City Saloon continue a tradition. George Molton was inducted into the Austin City Saloon Hall of Fame, as well as performed Friday and Saturday nights.
