Four Seasons Hotel, Austin
As the title implies, the ACS Gala was a night of musical celebration. From six year-old violinist Sydney Chung to Academy of Country Music award winner Jack Ingram, musicians filled the Four Seasons ballroom with music. Four hundred and sixty guests joined us for this musical celebration that included 10 year-old Grace London and 15 year-old Jaemin Bael. An intimate circle of singer-songwriters
featuring local artists Noelle Hampton,
Randy Weeks, Austin Collins and Erin Ivey took the stage later in the evening followed with dancing to the group Stonehoney.
But what brought the crowd to their feet was a moving speech by Gigi Bryant who shared her very
personal and poignant story of triumph over tragedy and growing up in foster care.
Please check back for photos of this memorable evening. In the meantime, check out Michael Barne's column on austin360.
