What’s new with CMA Close Up?

CMA Close Up has come a long way from its early days in the 1960s as a four-page, non-illustrated pamphlet. Starting with the April/May 2013 issue, the CMA bi-monthly membership magazine made its biggest leap ever, as a duo-platform (print and online) publication and resource.

The online edition of CMA Close Up is meant to be a companion to the printed magazine, which has always been an exclusive CMA member benefit.

You’ve probably noticed the capitalized “CU” in the navigation. Here at CMA, that has long been our abbreviation for CMA Close Up. “CU” has always been our platform for serving the Country Music community.

Content in the print edition corresponds to the navigation on this site:
