The purpose of the SGMA is
to maintain a Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum for the
historic preservation of the accomplishments of our music, its people and
We believe Southern Gospel Music is the musical arm of our Lord's
evangelist church, without regard to denomination. Therefore, it is our
job to use all means available to us to praise and spread the name of
Jesus Christ through Southern Gospel Music.
On April 17, 1999, the
Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum opened in Dollywood in
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Thanks so much for all the

Charlie, it's Friday morning and I wanted
to say "thank you" for the great honor given to my father,
Doyle, at the SGMA Hall of Fame awards show. I appreciate
your hard work to put together that wonderful video of
him. I didn't even know that there was such a video. My
sister and I would love to have a copy. At present, we
have nothing on tape or dvd and if that could be available
to us, I would be grateful.
Thanks again for all you did. I hope it
went well for you.
