Music Organization Links

These organizations are working hard to help Southern Gospel music grow across America, each in their own way. To find out more information about them, use the links to their individual web sites.


The Southern Gospel Music Association is an organization founded in 1994 that is dedicated to the preservation of Southern Gospel music's rich history through the construction and maintenance of a Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  Opened to the public on April 17th, 1999, the facility (seen above) is located just inside the front entrance at Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where millions of people can view interactive exhibits and learn more about Southern Gospel music. At the museum you will learn about Southern Gospel music's rich heritage, enjoy a lifelike "quartet" singing the way it was done in the early music schools, see an actual bus like the one the Blackwood Brothers first traveled in, enjoy interactive displays and much more.  Hall of Fame and Museum admission is free with regular Dollywood park admission. The SGMA is a private, non-profit 501-3C tax exempt organization operated by a board of directors selected from artists, industry participants and others.  The Association is actively seeking new members whose membership (just $20 per year) helps support the vital work of this organization. Separate donations are also being sought to help pay for the Hall of Fame and Museum.  Please visit the SGMA's web site for more information. (Paul Heil was inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2014.)


The Southern Gospel Music Guild is an active organization of Southern Gospel music industry leaders working hard to expand Southern Gospel music's awareness across America as well as to improve the professionalism of those already involved in any way.  The Guild has, in the past, fostered public awareness through the very popular "September is Southern Gospel Music Month" promotion each September.  And the Guild seeks to improve professionalism within the industry by promoting Southern Gospel involvement in the GMA's outstanding Gospel Music Week educational tracks each April (see below).  Paul Heil, host of The Gospel Greats program, served for nine years as the Guild's president.  For more information about the Guild, please visit the Guild's web site.  E-mail can be sent to info@sgmg.org.


     

The Gospel Music Association is the oldest and largest organization working for the spread of the Gospel through all forms and styles of Gospel music, including Southern Gospel.  The GMA is best known for the Dove Awards they announce each spring and for their Gospel Music Week in Nashville each April. Gospel Music Week's educational opportunities cover several tracks, for artists, radio, promoters, retailers and others who desire to increase their professionalism and knowledge about Gospel music.  Follow the links above for more information about the organization and the Doves.


The Southern Gospel Promoters Association was organized to help, encourage and provide information to all member concert promoters and work as a unified body to make a greater success of the concert arena. An SGPA Code of Ethics will be required and adhered to by each member promoter to insure that the association will be honorable, respectable and legal in all it’s presentations. More information about the SGPA is available on their web site: http://sgpromoters.com.
