Please remember that autograph guidelines have changed for this year’s CMA Fest. Here is a highlight of how the new procedure works:

Fans will now enter a random drawing for the opportunity to meet various artists appearing in the Fan Fair Exhibit Hall. You will be able to enter the drawing at CMAfest.com. between May 14 (starting at 10:00 AM/CT) and May 28 (ending at 5:00 PM/CT). You will enter in your contact information and then select from the list of participating artists singing autographs in the Hall. You may select as many or as few artists as you’d like to meet. Once you submit your entry, you will not be allowed to go back in and change it so choose carefully! Duplicate entries will not be considered and all winners will be notified by Friday, June 1 via email.

CMA will also have a limited number of tickets on-site at the Festival for those who can’t get to a computer to register ahead of time. For more information on this, please see the Fan Fair Hall page at CMAfest.com.

Not every artist participating in the Fan Fair Hall will be part of the autograph drawing. There will be many opportunities for patrons to obtain multiple autographs from artists by just walking around the Fan Fair Hall. So don’t lose hope if you don’t get picked!

FAN STORY: Arleana & Billy Gilman!

arleana

I’ve been crazy about Billy Gilman since I was 10! I’ve seen him in concert 3 times and met him 4…best days ever! The last time I saw him was in 09′, we drove 6 hours to get there and it was amazing. My friend had extra tickets that she won from MDA and so I bought them off her, and when we got there we found out that they came with a special back stage meet and greet! I almost passed out! When me and my friend got backstage I thought I really was going to pass out!
