One way fans at CMA Fest were able to escape the heat was by heading to Fan Fair X inside Music City Center.
Some of country's top acts signed autographs, took pictures, and met fans.
Garth Brooks even showed up at one point for a Question and Answer segment, and he surprised fans by also playing a few songs.
Fan Fair X gives fans the ability to get up close and personal with their favorite acts. It costs $10 to get into Fan Fair X, and those tickets are still available. Learn more about it here .
