Greater Arizona Country
Western Swing Music Association & Hall of Fame
A nice achievement Greater Az. Country Music Association has just been awarded. Our Internet Radio Station "GAC Radio" from here in Prescott Valley with past President Lee Power at the helm has propelled the signal to a world wide "Featured Station" in our genre. Congratulations Lee, and much thanks to former Academy of Country Music board member and Arizona's former KNIX / KMLE Country Radio personality Jim (disc-Jockey) West for giving us the network voice. Stay tuned for exciting things to come.
Some members of our Hall Of Fame are nationally known artist, while others are famous for their contributions to the world of western swing in the 40's and 50's. Your support is very important to us. Please open the Membership Application page and join the GACWSMA for monthly news letter and active participation. Also Just being a member is qualification for artist air play.
We are planning radio shows that will feature interviews plus live music from the far reaches of Arizona. Stay tuned and help expand as we evolve state and worldwide through GAC Radio.

We are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to promote the enjoyment and expansion of Country and Western Swing 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. Our Outreach Program is searching the far corners of our state to promote and support like minded enthusiasts. We are currently setting up chapters to strengthen our membership and offer guidance for recognition.
We induct into our Hall of Fame artists with National, or local and State success in support of Country Music. One of the GACWSMA's main criteria is to have had some connection to the great state of Arizona while in pursuit of a Country Music career. Tell us Who !
