Carly Pearce's Fan Fair Experiences As A Kid Impact How She Engages With Fans

Carly Pearce has been a country music fan ever since she can remember, so naturally she has attended the annual CMA Music Festival, formerly Fan Fair, in Nashville over the years. In fact, Carly admits to spending a lot of time waiting in line to get autographs and pictures with some of her favorites. She tells us: "I stood in line for hours for people like SheDaisy, people like LeAnn Rimes, Lee Ann Womack. All I wanted was just a glimpse to see them, let alone say hi to them, and so I feel, now seeing the lines for me and seeing that the fans are taking the time out of their busy four days to come and see me, it’s a responsibility to make sure that the way that I felt when I met those artists that were my favorites when I was a young girl, that I give them the same respect, and time, and genuine heart that I wanted and got when I was little."

Carly's CMA Fest schedule includes a performance at the Grand Ole Opry tonight (Thursday, June 6th) as well as at the Chevy Riverfront Stage on Saturday (June 8th).
