The Fan Fair X autograph signings are in the all-new Music City Center (entrance at Fifth & Demonbreun Streets).

Which autograph-signing sessions require tickets?
The schedule of signings will be posted to CMAfest.com in May. Signings requiring tickets will be designated on the posting.
How do I get autograph-signing tickets for sessions that require tickets?

How do I know if my entry was drawn?
Ticket winners will be notified by e-mail on Friday, May 31. The email will contain information on the autograph signing session (i.e. artist/time/location) and ticket pick-up times.
What if I don't win autograph signing tickets?
Only a select few autograph signings require tickets. The majority of signings DO NOT REQUIRE TICKETS, which means there are TONS of opportunities to meet and photograph artists and celebrities just by strolling through Fan Fair X!
What are "Fan Hopeful Lines?"
Fan Hopeful Lines will be featured inside Fan Fair X. These areas are like overflow lines, and they are where fans may gather to wait for a chance to meet an artist whose tickets have already been distributed. If the artist has additional time to sign after all ticketed fans have gone through the line, then fans in the Fan Hopeful Line will have the chance to join the artist signing.
