The Country Startpage brings you a collection of country music association from all over the world. You will find out that many countries do have their own association and site! An association is an organized group for a joint purpose and is usually non-profit.
In most cases you do have to pay a small fee but they will help you in the Country Music industry. Some will organize events / festivals, others will give you access to a network of like minded country and western artists. Being member of an association is usually a good start to make new contacts in the Country Music industry for both male and female singers, managers, record labels and other interested parties.
