VA GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION BRINGS TOGETHER ARTISTS, AND FANS

LYNCHBURG, VA, February 1, 2010 – The VA Gospel Music Association has been established to promote Southern Gospel, Country Gospel, and Bluegrass Gospel music in VA.

“We started a web site in 2007 to promote Southern gospel concerts and reach a younger fan base.” said Jeremy Bell, co-founder and webmaster.  The web site, www.vasoutherngospel.com, has concert dates, photos from recent shows, and links to artist web sites and industry information.  In November 2008, a blog was added in partnership with Aaron Swain of http://swainsmusings.blogspot.com/, one of the top bloggers in the Southern Gospel industry.

“When we began receiving Emails and calls from promoters and artists on a regular basis, we knew it was time to create an association to bring everyone together” adds co-founder Mike Cook who serves as afternoon host for Joy FM WTTX in Central VA.

The VGMA will be the hub for fans, artists, promoters, gospel radio stations and other media professionals that support the gospel music industry in VA.  The association will begin by using the current web site and adding links to promoters throughout VA and a place where fans can join free by entering their Email address.  A new web site will be created by fourth quarter 2010.
