There really are a lot of similarities between the two � and at the heart of both industries is a dedicated fan base. It is a pleasure to welcome them to our premier concert event."

"We're thrilled to participate in this year's CMA Music Festival to reach out to our fans and to meet new ones," said Brian Frons, president, Daytime, Disney-ABC Television Group. "Many of our actors cross over into the music world on Broadway and in Country, and we share many of the same fans."

"One Life to Live" -- Kathy Brier (Marcie McBain), Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer), John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex Balsom)

They'll be busy! The actors will be in the ABC Booth 234 in the Fan Fair� Exhibit Hall, where they will meet fans, sign autographs and take pictures (schedule and actors subject to change).

Friday, June 8 (all event times CT):

Their most anticipated appearance will be at ABC's "Fun in the Sun," a free fan event Saturday, June 9 (1:30-3:30 p.m.) at the Wildhorse Saloon. During the event, fans will have an opportunity to be on TV and get up-close and personal with their favorite stars. "Fun in the Sun" will include interviews, performances, dance lessons and many more activities for the fans and stars.

"Connecting fans with the celebrities they love is at the heart of what the Festival is all about � and ABC's �Fun in the Sun' continues that tradition," Genovese said. "It will be a great afternoon of entertainment."

The actors will also make a stop at the ABC Block Party, which takes place on Saturday from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the stage facing Fifth Avenue South between the Nashville Arena and the Hilton Hotel. Fans will enjoy performances, giveaways and special activities at this free event.
