Not one to limit showing her gratitude to fans in a brief acceptance speech, Taylor Swift is going to devote an entire day to thanking her admirers.

At the June 13 CMA Music Festival, the country star will host a 13-hour meet and greet.

“My favorite thing about CMA Music Fest has always been getting to spend time with the fans,” Swift – whose Fearless tour wraps this Saturday at Boston’s Gillette Stadium – said in a statement. “So this year I waned to figure out a way to meet as many of them as possible.”

Her day will begin at 8 a.m. at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, followed by a short acoustic performance around 2 that afternoon. The event, which is free and open to the public, will wrap up at 9 p.m.

“Thirteen is my lucky number,” says Swift, 20, “and the 13th is during Music Fest, so I think spending 13 hours with my fans is going to be amazing!”
