Our members are awesome – come to fun events and get to know them (and us too).


Because the music industry is constantly changing, there’s no shortage of things to learn. Join our educational programming on topics like NFTs in music, avoiding burnout in your career, building your professional brand, and insights into the changing Country Music consumer. 


Our internal research team is constantly taking stock of what’s happening in the music industry and what trends are emerging. Whether it’s Gen Z consumption habits, annual streaming data, or the changing demographics of consumers, our team is hard at work finding actionable insights you can use every day.

Discount Programs

Who doesn’t love saving a little money? Save on everything from office supplies, to dining out, to your next vacation.

Mental Health

This industry has tough, taxing moments. We’ve lined up resources to help take some of the burden off of seeking help while offsetting the cost to make mental health accessible. Plus, we have a network of resources that can provide more intensive treatment should someone you know find themselves in crisis.



“[As a CMA member] I get to keep up with everything they’re doing and the initiatives they are working so hard on. I think the one I’m most excited about, though, is the Women’s Leadership Academy. As a young female in the industry who hopes to one day move into a leadership position, I’m thrilled there is a program in place to teach and guide us on how to be the best role models we can be for future generations.”
