The COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION asked for photographs to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL and during the last few weeks, former attendees of the event (which started as FAN FAIR in 1972) submitted hundreds of photographs. Six photos were chosen to be used on the Festival tickets, but all submitted photographs will be included in an on-going photo archive. All six winning photographs will also be displayed on www.cmafest.com.
The grand prize winner was MANDIE PALCIC of INDIAN TRAIL, NC, for her photo with BIG MACHINE star TAYLOR SWIFT from 2008. The photo will be used on the Gold Circle Level tickets for this year's Festival. PALCIC will have the opportunity to autograph ticket blanks in the CMA Booth of the FAN FAIR EXHIBIT HALL at this year's Festival. She will also receive two Gold Circle four-day tickets to the 2012 CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, a plaque displaying a ticket containing her winning photograph and a merchandise prize pack.
The CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL will be held JUNE 9th through 12th in DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE and will be filmed for an ABC-TV special that will air later this SUMMER. Check out all the winning photos and get more details at www.cmafest.com.
