Greater Arizona Country
Western Swing Music Association & Hall of Fame
This years Anita Wells Scholarship Award goes to the;
Model Creek School in Peeples Valley
The GAC board and members also delivered a Set of Drums, Guitar, & Keyboard
The School had lost their musical program due to funding. But, the need of the students and desire from the facility were strong.
The GAC pronounced the area school would be the
2016-2917 recipient of our by-laws youth contribution.
President Gary Clemmons was voted another term 2017-2918 to help guide the association into the new year. His agenda will support an Outreach Program, Hall of Fame Exhibit, Physical Hall, and a Live GAC Entertainment production.
Goal's of the GACMA must include exposure with our home town of Prescott Valley as well as growth throughout the state.

Welcome to our website
Thanks for your interest in the Greater Arizona
Country Music Association and Hall of Fame. Our home base is in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
2017 - 2018 BOARD would like to remind all members that
it's your help all year long that we are able to put on an induction program like on September 10th of 2017. The membership & guests enjoyed a grand day of Country Music, Food, Auction items, and the traditional 50-50 draw. Live performances from many on the left column of this page gave a spirited 4 hour program that was considered much more than anyone anticipated.
We hold a monthly meeting, jam session. pot-luck on the second Sunday of each month from noon to 4 p.m. currently at C.A.S.A. 9360 E. Manzanita Circle in Prescott Valley. (Google this address to get directions.) We are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to promote the enjoyment and expansion of Country Music throughout the State of Arizona (and the world). We do this through our monthly meetings, outside events, fund raisers, advertising, competitive exposure, while offering scholarships to young people with an interest in Country & Western Swing music. Blue Grass, or Traditional.
Our membership is in abundance of Singers, Musicians, entertainers, dancers, and folks that appreciate Country music.
