God Gives A Song!

In recent months, we have witnessed trying times for our nation.  Most economists are painting a grim picture for the future.  Historically, when times are hard, there is always a song that comes along to lift us above the struggles.  If we really are facing hard times, I can only say “what an awesome opportunity for us to touch a troubled world with our music”!  Let God give you a song!  Then sing it with all your might!  Sing for all the world to hear!


History of the ICGMA

This is the 56th year of existence for the ICGMA, making it the oldest Country Gospel Music Organization in America.  Throughout these many years, Artist, Fans, and Industry alike have found the ICGMA a wonderful place of fellowship, friendship, and ministry, as we worked together to advance this great musical art form, and to build the kingdom of God.

Over 50 years ago, Dr. W. Lindsey Thompson and Billy Holcomb founded the I C G M A (International Country Gospel Music Association). They had a strong vision to unite those who loved and ministered in the Country Gospel Music field. They felt by uniting and working together with artists from all over the world, they could form a bond and build a music industry that could truly spread God's message of salvation through the Country music that so many love. They knew that good Christian music can sometimes reach a soul when nothing else can. They had a vision to have a music ministry association with great integrity, high moral standards, and that would be open to everyone, not just an elite few. All these things have been accomplished along with many more over the last 50 years.

Country Gospel and Christian Country music are now at the top of the many Christian music formats. Climbing so fast that many of the major record labels, such as Curb, MCA, Sony, and RCA are releasing great and exciting cuts with brand new talent. Why not ? It has always been one of the world's favorite music genres.

For over 50 years the I C G M A and its members have presented its prestigious Gold Cross awards to some of the most outstanding artists and servants to Christ in the Country Gospel field. Artists such as: Walt Mills, Judy DeRamus, Willie Nelson, Del Way, Chuck Day, Fox Brothers, Dottie Rambo, Dr. Joe Price, Billy Walker, Barbara Fairchild, Jimmy Jones, Kenny Hinson, LaVerne Tripp, Jimmy Fautheree, Roland Wright, Stewart Hamlin, Jody Miller, Shelia Lewis, Tommy Smith, Betty Jean Robinson, Claude Gray, Joe Paul Nichols, Otha Geeslin, W C Taylor, Barry Wayne, Johnny Mathis, Light Crust Doughboys, Dolly Parton, Gina White, Clifton Jansky, Gene Reasoner, James Marvell, Lawton Williams, Wanda Jackson, Gary R. Smith, Margo Smith, Mary Faye Jackson, Gayla Earlene, Gene Crain, Mike Manuel, David Patillo, Susie Luchsinger, Cal Denison, Bruce Haynes, Cross Country, Morgan & Morgan, The Singing Nichols, Family, One A Chord, Steve "Rabbit" Easter, The Babcocks, Red Foley, Ken Holloway, Pete Whitebird, Steve White, The Texas Girls, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Glorya Wilson, Billy Jack Davis, Mike Culpepper, Melanie Walker, The Chuck Wagon Gang, and many, many more. Too many to list.

The ICGMA is proud of what it has accomplished in over 50 years. We would also like to say that we do not feel as though we were totally responsible for the great leaps and bounds that Country Gospel Music has made in the last decade. We know that many of our great and treasured friends in other organizations such as GMA, CGMA, TIMA, CGMG, CGMC, and CCMA have played a major role in the development of this genre of music. We are all there to encourage and support each other in our ministries. We all have but one purpose, to spread the word of our Saviour to a lost world through music.
