Things are getting just a little more exciting for country music fans heading to Nashville this year for the world’s biggest country music festival. CMA Fan Fest announced yesterday the addition of brand new features, including Fan Fair X, in the brand new Convention Center during the annual event from Thursday, June 6th until Sunday, June 9th.
Fan Fair X will be the new home for artist autograph signings, exhibits, live broadcasts, a marketplace, and the lifestyle home for country fans during the festival.
CEO Steve Moore shared:
“The relationship between our artists and the fans is at the very heart of what this event was founded on, and we continue to embrace that legacy with Fan Fair X. By moving to the Music City Center, we are able to provide more opportunities and activities to enhance this treasured experience for the fans.”
Country superstars Lady Antebellum are the first announced acts for Fan Fair X. They’ll perform the special ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 6th. Hillary Scott said:
“I’m looking forward to being in the new Music City Center. We’re really excited to be given the opportunity to merge our ‘PING PONG & SONGS’ event with Music Fest and this new fan experience CMA is creating. Now that fans from all over the country will be able to play ping pong against us, Charles and Dave are going to have to brush up on their skills! All the money we raise at our booth will go to LADYAID – it’s going to be so fun for us and for the fans!”
