Welcome to the official site of the "Southern Gospel Music Association." We operate the "SGMA Hall of Fame and Museum" inside Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN. We are keeping the memory and achievements of Southern Gospel music's pioneers alive for future generations. Come for a visit!
Along with the entire Southern Gospel music community, the SGMA is saddened to learn of the passing of
Dr. Jerry Goff. Dr. Goff was a founder and President Emeritus of the SGMA, and an ardent supporter of our mission. He was the epitome of class and dignity, and we would all do well to follow his example.
SGMA President, Arthur Rice, shares the following personal tribute...
"I will miss many things with the passing of Bro Jerry; encouragement, support, leadership, instruction, to name a few. But most of all, I will miss my friend."
On behalf of the SGMA Board of Directors, we are eternally grateful for the legacy he has left us. Our prayers are with Jan Buckner Goff and family.
