Apply for Membership

If you would like to be a part of a society for the preservation of the dream and legacy of Mr. Hay of his idea and inspiration he had of keeping the music “simple as sunshine”, we would love to have you join us. Mr. Hay’s ideal has fallen by the wayside by those in the past years having changed his ideology.

It is our goal to bring the attention to the information of the origin of the inspiration of the Grand Ole Opry and the importance of Mr.Hay’s work in keeping the old time, mountain and country music in its purity as he wanted it. We are a historical Society and a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Missouri. If you would like to join, please use the form below. A membership certificate and a copy of our bylaws will be sent to you upon receipt.
