June 14, 2010 at 8:22 AM (PT)
BIG MACHINE star TAYLOR SWIFT met with fans for almost 15 hours at the BRIDGESTONE ARENA in NASHVILLE on SUNDAY (6/13) during the CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL. The meet-and-greet was scheduled to be 13 hours but when it became clear that SWIFT could not meet all the fans with wristbands in line by 9p (CT), she extended the session to 11p (CT).
More than 10,000 people came through BRIDGESTONE, and SWIFT spent time with almost 2,000 fans. At 2:30p (CT) SWIFT performed some songs with her band in the BRIDGESTONE ARENA.
SWIFT told THE TENNESSEAN: “I’m hearing so many amazing stories from people. And I’m seeing a lot of tattoos: Not like biker tattoos, but girls with little ankle tattoos that say ‘Fearless.’”
Stage props and outfits from the “Fearless” tour were set up on the arena floor on SUNDAY, so that SWIFT’s fans could see them up close. Fans were admitted into the building at no charge and they received wristbands that gave them a meeting time with SWIFT.
