History of the WMA
Purpose of the WMA
The Western Music Association and its chapters foster the professional growth of individual performing members. Our open membership policy encourages western music performers and fans to join and participate in the organization. The WMA publishes the quarterly "Western Way", the only professional magazine dedicated to the promotion of western music, and our website, provides a central focus for western music performers and links to their individual websites. Inclusion on the website is one of the membership benefits for performing members. Our Educational Outreach Program was started because we view it as important to acquaint students with the musical heritage of the American West, from traditional trail songs, through the era of the movie cowboy, to contemporary western songwriting.
Involvement in the WMA
The Western Music Association represents what is good and wholesome in our society. We all remember Roy Rogers and the other singing cowboys, and we’ve heard about the Code of the West. The WMA strives to remind folks of this legacy.
There are two ways for you to become involved: as a member of the WMA and as a sponsor. As a member, you may participate in or attend the annual Western Music Festival, where WMA members represent the true cowboy image while providing exceptional family entertainment. As a member, you might also choose to become part of our Educational Outreach Program, which takes the heritage and the music of the American cowboy to students.
