The Recording Academy Texas Chapter recently played host for GRAMMYs On The Road at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, held Oct. 12–14 at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. The Chapter conducted exclusive backstage interviews with artists performing at the festival, including folk/rock band the Avett Brothers and country/rock group Old 97’s.
The Avett Brothers’ Scott and Seth Avett discussed performing for larger crowds versus smaller audiences, their songwriting process and stories from touring, among other topics.
“It’s interesting figuring out how to process the energy of so many people and to try to provide for them an energy that matches it without just collapsing,” said Seth Avett on performing to larger audiences. “But I think we do that pretty well.”
