Listeners across the country will enjoy SiriusXM's live broadcast as the GRAMMY® and seventeen-time Latin GRAMMY® winning guitarist, singer and songwriter takes the stage at Austin City Limits to perform many of his popular hits-including "Es Por Ti," "Mala Gente," and "A Dios Le Pido."

His most recent album, "JUANES MTV Unplugged," debuted at #1 on the "Top Latin Albums" chart and in 18 countries throughout Latin America.
