Leadership Music’s 26th class will be composed of 46 industry leaders from across the country. Founded in 1989 by eleven music industry alumni of Leadership Nashville, Leadership Music has graduated more than 1000 leaders. The annual program is designed to create a forum for established music community leaders to identify and explore issues currently affecting the music industry, as well as providing once-in-a-lifetime experiences and meeting people one would not ordinarily meet with whom one builds lasting relationships.
