The Western Music Association was incorporated in 1989 to promote western music as well as the history and literature of the American West.

The WMA stages the International Western Music Festival every November during which it announces winners in several different categories; including Traditional Western Duo/Group of the Year, Traditional Western Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Male and Female Performers of the Year, etc.

It also publishes The Western Way, said to be the only professional magazine dedicated to the promotion of western music. The song "Western Way" by Kata Hay was inspired by the magazine's title and was featured in the summer comedy of 2009 Coyote County Loser.[1]
