Harris to Be Honored by Nashville’s Leadership Music

Emmylou Harris has been named the 2006 recipient of the Dale Franklin Leadership Award from Leadership Music, a nonprofit organization that promotes communication among professionals working within the Nashville music industry. The award was established in 2004 “to recognize a music industry leader who exemplifies the highest quality of leadership and leading by example.” In making the announcement, Leadership Music board president Van Tucker noted, “No other artist in our industry has so personified, in action and in music, such an appreciation for Nashville’s musical heritage across all genres as Emmylou Harris.” She will be honored Sept. 19 during a tribute banquet at the new Schermerhorn Symphony Center in downtown Nashville.
