The legendary keyboard player, who played with Rolling Stones star Wood in the Small Faces and the Faces, died at a hospital in his adopted hometown of Austin in December (14) after suffering a stroke at the age of 69.

MCLagan was remembered at the music prizegiving in the city in an hour-long tribute segment, which featured performances from stars including Van Zandt and Griffin, and a video message from Wood.

MCLagan's son Lee attended the event on his father's behalf and received a standing ovation as he told the crowd, "My dad would be thrilled to be (here)... He loved this place with all his heart. I hope he gave you a good time, 'cause you gave him a home."

Other performers at the ceremony included Gary Clark, Jr., while the night's big winner was Austin native Gina Chavez, who won four prizes for her Latin-style music.
