Hall of Fame | Western Music Association

Western Music Association Hall of Fame

In August 1988, a group of Western Music performers and fans met in Las Vegas, Nevada to organize an association and present a festival.  They incorporated the Western Music Association as an Arizona non-profit corporation in 1989 and the organization has had an annual gathering every November since then.  Since its inception, the WMA has expanded to include twelve state and regional chapters, and it’s been among the forces that are responsible for the current popularity of Western Music around the world.

The Western Music Association is an organization that encourages and supports the preservation, performance and composition of historic traditional and contemporary music and poetry of The West
