    I went and looked and I still have the email from the very FIRST fan club party in 2007, lol. It lasted from 2-6, there was a Q&A, and we got to vote on a cover song for her to sing (Alone was the winner). It was held in the Acuff Theater that year.

Yes, Donna and I have been members of the fan club since the day it opened, but I know that I, at least, am not active on the fan club forums at all. I'm a member for the M&G/fan club party opportunities and presale tickets and that's it (especially since Carrie doesn't post or blog anymore). And I echo what Donna said about M&Gs - some people have had multiple M&Gs and I've had one way back during the Love, Pain & Whole Crazy Carnival Ride Tour with Keith even though I've entered the M&G contests for every tour since then (and some tours I attended twice). Those chances are even more slim, because I think it's only around 10 fan club members that are chosen for M&Gs each show. It would be nice if they somehow filtered out people who had been awarded M&Gs multiple times until everyone has had the chance to meet her the same number of times, but it just doesn't work that way (for the fan club party either).

    Anyway, you can certainly be mad at the system if you want, but I don't think it will ever change from a system of complete luck of the draw to a more accounted for system where who wins is chosen based on who hasn't won before.
    Sorry if my post sounded harsh and angry.This whole process is really new to me because I just joined the fan club & I'm really not aware of how it really works & how the fan club party is conducted.I had to get that off of my chest &I feel badly about how it came out & I truly apologize for that.Pure chance still sucks,though.I just want this so badly for me and other fan club members that I've read on here and on Twitter than can actually make it to the party & have to sacrifice time and money just to get to the party.If it happens for me,that's great!If not,I'll have to live with it and deal with the disappointment of not getting to go to the party.As my dad says,it is what it is when it comes to not always getting what you want in life.

    I suspect the fcp will be back in Studio A again like the last 2 years.
    Any ideas as to why she'd have it in a smaller room and not the main Opry stage like in 2014? One would think she would like as many as her fans to be there as possible :( I was hoping to make my first ever trip to Nashville for this so I'm still super bummed!

    I remember that. Only fanclub party I have gotten to attend! I wonder I they will livestream the party this year like they did for one of the prior ones. Let’s hope they do!

    We probably won't know until the day of why they chose to have it in Studio A instead of the main Opry house and maybe not even then. She used to have it the same morning as the Tuesday night Opry, so I don't think it would be an issue with a conflicting event like rehearsals (which would have been true for the very first party where rehearsals were taking place at the same time as the party since it was in the afternoon). I really can't speculate why they would choose the smaller venue when it seems they are going back to the mini-concert format, but we'll let you all know more details when we get additional information or after the event.

    Edit: Edited to say that we actually don't know yet if it's in Studio A or the main Opry House. The venue hasn't been announced. We're just speculating that it's in Studio A due to the invitation saying very limited attendance.

    That was the BEST fan club party ever. I need to find my photo that was taken that day - didn't they print them on site for us to pick up as we left the party? I don't even know for sure where my M&G photo has gotten to from 2008. I'm pretty sure that's back when they took the M&G photos on your own camera. I have two photos with Carrie and no clue where either of them are at!

    The only thing that could make this one better is if she sings Chaser!

    Another round of invites went out, so check your emails.

    On another note: Is it possible that winning a Meet and Greet within the past year disqualifies you from getting an FCP invite?

    They did print them for us to pick us as we left and I still have mine. It was a great party! Here's hoping they go back to that this year.

    If anyone that was invited hasn't checked their email yet, they were sent earlier this evening.

    Also, if I am reading the email correctly, it says that there will be a "photo with Carrie for EACH INVITED MEMBER". I can't believe it! I think we're getting individual photo ops instead of a group photo! I have to make up for that M&G I had back in 2008 that was completely awkward, lol.

    I hope it does. I feel like the last couple of years they clearly said there would be a group photo, but maybe not.

    She also sang Chaser, Little Girl Don't Grow Up Too Fast, and CCA (because she said she felt like it was a fan fave, which it is!)! Between myself and Donna, we got videos of everything except Mexico. It was the first song and I did get some snippets of the high notes at the end, but that was it. I haven't decided whether or not to post the videos publicly since I'm sure we weren't supposed to be taking video.

    I'm not going to go into too much detail here. I'll post a thread with my Fan Club Party experience and some pictures when I have more time. Donna is at CMA Fest until Sunday, but I'm sure she'll post her pictures when she gets back home. I know she already posted some of the Opry shows.

    Btw I'm curious to know whether other artists have their fanclub parties at the Opry too or is it just Carrie who specially selects this as the place?

    as far as I know it's only Carrie


    as far as the lack of videos....they asked us not to video the fcp so I imagine most that have videos only share them with friends
