Perhaps no one has signed more autographs in the 40-year history of Fan Fair/CMA Music Festival than Country Music Hall of Famer Bill Anderson, who has missed only one Festival since it began in 1972. So when we sought out a master to give autograph-seekers some friendly advice, the choice was obvious. Here’s what he had to say:
I continue to be honored every time someone wants my signature. These are not marching orders, but a few serious and not-so-serious suggestions as to how you might get the most of out of your autograph collecting experience.
