Members of the Southern Heritage Music Association, must be willing to agree with the following statement: "I agree to use the art of music for the purpose of furthering a positive image of traditional Southern heritage within the music industry and among the general population."
Members are expected to promote our unique Southern heritage by applying the highest professional, moral, and ethical standards to the music industry; all of our efforts are to be viewed as a cumulative educational process for Southerners and the rest of the world. Any disparagement of the South's traditional history, heritage, or symbols would be grounds for the expulsion of one's membership in the Southern Heritage Music Association.
Southerners who are properly educated in Southern heritage and culture know in our hearts that Dixie, with our people and land, is truly the greatest place on earth!

The only exception is that individual members may post music of a group of which they were a member but which no longer exists, provided that they affirm that they own the legal right to sell the music of the previously-existing group.
