For years fans have lined up in long lines to get autographs from their favorite country music stars at CMA Music Festival in Nashville. Those long lines may be going away.

In an effort to eliminate the long wait for fans, autograph seekers will now sign up at to enter a random drawing to determine which artists they'll meet. The hope is that this will allow festival goers to enjoy other events and concerts during the week.

Sign-up begins May 14 and runs through May 28. Fans will be notified on June 1 which artists they'll get to meet. Tickets for each signing booth will be handed out the day before the appointed time.
