Hundreds Line Up For Brooks Bottle Signing

Hundreds of people lined up at Keeneland early Friday morning to get their Maker's Mark Commemorative Bottles signed.

Many people camped out Thursday night, Alonzo Shirley, who was first in line.

This year's bottle featured U.K. Head Football Coach Rich Brooks. The bottles went on sale last week, and sold out in record time.

Coach Brooks was out around 5:30am to autograph the bottles for the excited fans and collectors waiting in line. Nick Nicholson, who's the head of Keeneland, and Bill Samuels, the president of Makers Mark, also signed the bottles.

Proceeds from this year's bottle sales will go benefit the UK Symphony Orchestra. They'll use the money towards a program that puts classical music back into local schools across the state.
