Have you seen the news? Six lucky CMA Music Festival fans will get their personal photos featured on tickets at this year’s 40th anniversary Fest! Hats off to the lucky winners:
Mandie Palcic of Indian Trail, N.C., shared her shot with Taylor Swift at the 2008 event. And that photo took top prize! In addition to some other prizing, Mandie’s shot will be featured on all Gold Circle-level four-day laminates at this year’s Fest. Congrats, Mandie!
Second place winner Dianne Everett of St. Louis, Mo., will have her photo included on the Floor-level tickets this year. The shot, from the 1994 Fan Fair, features Dianne with Country Music icon Loretta Lynn. Very cool!
Ashland, Ky.-native Jamie Leslie attended last year’s Festival and got to meet superstar Jason Aldean. Jamie’s special moment with the “My Kinda Party” crooner led to a third-place win. Look for this shot of Jamie and Jason on the Lower-level four-day tickets.
Are you sitting in the Club-level at LP Field? Then be on the lookout for this photo of Albuquerque, N.M.-resident Jackie Brannan with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, taken at Fan Fair in 2000. Great shot, Jackie!
Michelle Ferullo of Westfield, Mass., had a chance to meet Carrie Underwood in the Fan Fair Exhibit Hall in 2008. This sweet photo will be featured on tickets within the Upper-level reserved sections.
And finally, the Upper-level general admission tickets will display a cool Country quartet – Lady Antebellum and fan Laura Kolor from Wappingers Falls, N.Y. Thanks for sharing your shot from Lady A’s fan club party last year, Laura. And congrats!
Congrats again to Mandie, Dianne, Jamie, Jackie, Michelle and Laura!
Thanks to all the fans who participated in our photo submission contest! It was a blast seeing all these great photos come through, and we appreciate you sharing your special moments from past Fan Fairs. Here’s to making plenty more memories this June, and in the next 40 years.
