Since 1972, country music fans have been flocking to Nashville every June for country music's biggest festival, Fan Fair! For some unknown reason in 2004, this beloved annual event was renamed 'CMA Music Fest', but the sentiment remains the same, an opportunity for fans to interact with their favorite country music artists.

Some really huge stars that don't sing country music have made appearances throughout the years - Larry King, actor Danny Glover, Lenny Kravitz, Olivia Newton John, Bryan Adams, The Beach Boys, even Paul McCartney visited Nashville for the festivities!

In 1990 singer Wayne Newton performed at the Tennessee State Fair Grounds, and proved to be a big hit with fans, as he signed autographs and posed for photos. Check out the awesome video above, from Nashville entertainment reporter Jimmy Carter.

CMA Music Fest / Fair Fair is June 8 -11, 2017. You still have time to head to Nashville for the fun!
