Outlaw is NOT a genre of music. It is an attitude, a refusal to compromise one’s music for the money. A belief that the music is what’s important and any success comes from a large fan base agreeing.
Who is Gary Sargeant , and what motivated him to start an Outlaw Country Music Hall of Fame?
I’m a lifelong fan, 55 years old, of Outlaw music, independent artists and labels, and just firmly believe in people who stay true to themselves and their music, and don’t compromise.
It all started at a David Allan Coe benefit that I attended back in June. He was in an accident and wasn’t able to tour. I was kind of upset that David Allan Coe required a benefit. That at 73, he had to tour just to pay his bills because back in the day, things happened and he doesn’t own his catalog. And I was trying to think of a way we could support legends, and recognize people like David, or any number of people that have contributed so much to this music, and have never compromised. I wanted to make sure we had a place to recognize those folks who will never get recognized by anybody else, and then also be able to support today’s Outlaws—the Pete Berwick’s, the Gurf Morlix’s. Its time has come, and we’re going to do this.
MISSION STATEMENT The Outlaw Music Association’s mission is to provide a place for artists, labels, and fans to come together to love, support, promote, and lift each other up for the common cause of promoting the music we love and to grow its audience around the world. Real Country music is alive and well and will not die on our watch.
Outlaw Music Association (OMA) consists of artists who have made a commitment to their music, to each other and to their fans. The list includes members of the Outlaw Music Hall of Fame inductees who receive an automatic lifetime membership to the OMA.

Unconventional, and unconstrained by others’ opinions, Kara Clark and her badass Alt Country/Rock sound just hits the stage running. She doesn’t care where she “fits in” cause when she’s out there, it all falls into place. Kara’s always worn her heart on her sleeve and her written word is the woven tapestry of troubled times, hidden passion, injustice, haunting ghosts, hypocrisy, regret, the worst love we seem to want, empowerment and the gritty, storied truth. Her first album, SINNIN,’ released in 2010, set the ball rolling. Visit Kara Clark on FaceBook ReverbNation
