NACMAI – North American Country Music Associations International ” KEEP COUNTRY, COUNTRY!”

NACMAI – North American Country Music Associations International  ” KEEP COUNTRY, COUNTRY!”  For all of us at NACMAI, it is essential to the heart of the lyrics of a country music song, a gospel song, or for bluegrass to maintain the essence and spirit of the intent and inspiring elements of the original story tellers to promote their ideals with music that touches others.  How do you take that out of the closet, or the shower stall and bring it to those waiting and anxious to hear your unique composition?  Recognition, it isn’t a secret; but it has a way of traveling fast and far; so make it yours, make it real, and forever Keep Country, Country! The inspiration starts from those who came before and take a look at those in theNACMAI Hall of Fame past roster as we await the final list for this coming year!  Stay nearby, put your feet up and visit this site often to see what is new as the preparations are made for the Annual Hall Of Fame and Awards Show which is in March 2019 and we are so anxious to bring you the newest news as it unfolds leading up to one of the best not to miss shows this next spring in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in the beautiful blue Smoky Mountains!

Our Story

“to promote the development of the Country/Gospel Music Industry in each state and country through an International Association to promote and inform members of the industry and the public about resources available in the various states and countries for Country/Gospel Music production.” This can be accomplished by bringing together the various State/International Country Music Associations and/or Foundations in an organized method.
