Atlanta airport displaying singers' styles

Some travelers passing through Atlanta's sprawling airport soon will have some famous duds to gaze at on their way to the gates.

Cowboy boots worn by Alan Jackson, a leather jacket signed by the two members of OutKast and a silk jacket worn by Ray Charles are going on display at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The 300-foot-long display will include highlights from the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. The exhibit will be finished within a week and will stay up until July 2005, officials said.

The hall of fame, which has struggled to attract big crowds to its Macon home despite Georgia's rich music heritage, is hoping a high-profile display at Hartsfield will boost visits.

"Our idea was how to get maximum exposure for the museum," said spokeswoman Jessica Walden-Griner.
