The Netherlands has a vibrant music community, attracting musicians from around the world to perform at venues and festivals throughout the year. The Dutch Country Music Association (DCMA) is composed of members who strive to grow and maintain the popularity of country music, particularly country music written and performed by Dutch artists.

Excerpt from the DCMA official website about the association (translated from Dutch/Nederlands):

url: http://www.dcma.nl/index.php/dcma-info/

The DMCA is the only association in the Netherlands dedicated to the promotion of homegrown country music in the broadest sense of the word. A group of volunteers is committed to (providing) artists, presenters, (and) organizers with information, promotional materials etc.
DCMA also organizes events to bring better country music to the attention of a wide audience.

The Netherlands gained worldwide notice as a place where country music was becoming more popular and mainstream when the Dutch country music duo “The Common Linnets” won the 2014 Eurovision song contest, (which had previously catered to pop music). According to Wallstreet News article “Europe Tunes in to Its Own Country Music Scene” (a. Ginanne Brownell, Aug. 11, 2014), country music is gaining in popularity, and artists local to the Netherlands and Europe are beginning to gain a foothold as established country artists, with some striking record deals in Nashville. The Dutch Country Music Association plays a role in making sure its artists and other members from the music industry stay connected through networking and by sharing information relevant to the country music industry. The DCMA also hosts the DCMA Awards in November in recognition of the achievements of Dutch artists and those who work in the Dutch music industry.

The DCMA is an organizational member of the trade organization Country Music Association (CMA) of Nashville, Tennessee.
