Trisha Yearwood's induction into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame included a sweet reunion with an old friend.

The country music star performed "Walkaway Joe" with Eagles co-founder Don Henley during the all-star "Austin City Limits 9th Annual Hall of Fame Honors Trisha Yearwood" special set to air on PBS Saturday.

"I can't imagine being on this stage and being honored by Don Henley and not asking him if he would come up here and help me finish my portion of the show," said Yearwood in a clip of the upcoming episode released on YouTube.

After the special was filmed in October 2023, Yearwood shared on Instagram that "to say I had the time of my life in Austin is an understatement."

"I feel humbled to be honored on such a sacred stage. Live music can change people’s lives and what Austin City Limits has been doing for live music for the last 50 years is truly life changing, not only for the artists and the players, but most importantly for everyone watching and listening," her caption read.
