Although Fan Fair doesn't officially start until Thursday, the parties have already begun.
The Wilkinsons Fan Club is throwing their annual party today at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville, starting at 7 am. The event includes a breakfast buffet, meet-and-greet, a question and answer session, and a special performance.
Right around lunchtime, Lorrie Morgan and Sammy Kershaw are hosting a picture and autograph session at Lorrie's HOTChickens.com restaurant. They will be there from 11 am to 2 pm with plenty of hot chicken for everyone.
As for the official Fan Fair festivities, Lee Ann Womack is scheduled to sing "The Star Spangled Banner" during the opening ceremonies on Thursday. Says Lee Ann, "I can't think of a better way to be a part of Fan Fair than by getting to help kick it off. Singing the national anthem and welcoming the country fans to my town is a pretty cool way to get this thing started."
