"FAN FAIR" GETS A NAME CHANGE

The last night of Fan Fair 2003 was the last time, Fan Fair was used as an official name. The Country Music Association has changed the name of the event to the "CMA Music Festival." The name change was due in part to reflect the bigger size and status the event now commands.

CMA spokeswoman Wendy Pearl noted the change has been in the works over the last two years since the venue has changed from the Tennessee State Fairgrounds to downtown Nashville and the sponsor list and event underwriters have grown in size.

Since the tickets for next year's festival started selling on Saturday 6/7, the producers wanted to dispel any confusion with getting a place at next year's event -- so make a note to look for the bigger and better "CMA Music Festival"!
