NASHVILLE, Tenn. ( UTC/AP) — An exhibition honoring women who helped establish the foundation of Nashville’s music industry is slated to be unveiled at the city’s airport.

Arts at the Airport and the Metro Nashville Airport Authority along with SOURCE — a nonprofit group that supports women executives and professionals who work in Nashville’s music industry — will celebrate the opening of SOURCE Behind the Music on Wednesday.

The SOURCE Behind the Music exhibit highlights women honorees and their achievements. While many were not celebrated during their lifetime, they played a major role in creating today’s music industry.

Arts at the Airport’s Caroline Carlisle was the curator and producer of the exhibit, and Karen Edgin was the designer.
