The AdS/CFT correspondence may offer new and useful insights into the nonperturbative regime of strongly coupled gauge theories such as QCD. We present an AdS/CFT-inspired model that describes the spectra of light mesons. The conformal symmetry is broken by a background dilaton field, and chiral symmetry breaking and linear confinement are described by a chiral condensate field. These background fields, along with a background glueball condensate field, are derived from a potential. We describe the construction of the potential, and the calculation of the meson spectra, which match experimental data well. We argue that the presence of the third background field is necessary to properly describe the meson spectra.
