Introduction In recent times, Country Music, an American music born out of the Blues, has enjoyed mainstream acceptance. However, representation in country music is void of the contributions and participation of Blacks to the genre. While Deford Bailey, Charley Pride, and Ray Charles though not classed as country, enjoyed some acceptance, the doors of country music remain shut to other performers and musicians. In our efforts to enhance the participation and acceptance of Blacks in Country Music, in January 1989, the Black Country Music Association ™(BCMA) was formed in Texas. BCMA is committed to increasing the number of performers in Country music, through talent showcases, educational seminars and aggressive marketing. We will provide the necessary tools for artists to pursue his or her individuality. Our mission is to become an organization of excellence in leadership, professionalism, creativity and contributions of all musicians in Country Music. Our goal is to recognize and promote the heritage, and contributions of Blacks in Country music. We will continue the spirit of community and respect all musicians, create opportunities for artists to gain entry into mainstream Country.
Interests Our interest is to promote and educate the market about Blacks in Country Music and the many contributions they have made to the success of the genre. Additionally we provide opportunities to recognize the artists through award shows, commercials and educational research.
