Welcome


Welcome
Welcome to The ICGBMA site. We are a not for profit organization (GMCI IRS GROUP#7198) that supports traditional country , gospel and bluegrass music. We honor those who give their hearts and soul to preserve this music. We believe each songwriter, performer who does it for the love of music should be recognized for their efforts. No politics involved , just a genuine love for traditional music. We believe the independent artist have paved a way through the years to keep this music alive and well. As a member of The Genuine Country Music Association, The Country Gospel Music Association, & The Josie Music Awards and Independent Country Music Hall of Famer we understand how important it is to keep the artist honored and the music playing. We strive each year to recognize those artist who play this music to be honored in The Independent Country Gospel Bluegrass Music Association Hall Of Fame. Lets continue the legacy given by those who have shown us what real music is all about, Merle Haggard, Lefty Frizzell, George Jones, Hank Williams, Leona Williams, Stonewall Jackson,The Whites, The Hinsons, The Lamar Sego Family ,Bill Monroe , Doyle Lawson, Dailey & Vincent and others. Thanks for your support. The ICGBMA family. As of January 1,2018 working alongside The Independent Country Music Hall Of Fame we will induct two artist, groups in the Gospel and Bluegrass catagories each year at the Josie Awards. The Independent Country Music Hall Of Fame will induct two Traditional Country artist or groups. Its a great agreement between both organizations that will benefit these great musicians.  Get on board and support these two great organizations. It also put us in the national spot light as a true dedicated organization for the artist.
