The City of Roswell and their event management company, In Depth Events, has released the name of the headlining act for the 2021 Roswell UFO Festival. New Mexico’s own Chevel Shepherd will grace the stage with her band for the headliner slot of the July 3 concert.
Chevel Shepherd first made international news for winning the 15th season of The Voice at the young age of 16, nurtured by none other than coach Kelly Clarkson. Since this stunning breakthrough, Chevel has opened shows for Clarkson, as well as other international talent like Little Big Town, Lee Brice, and more.
In addition to Chevel’s talents, attendees of the concert on July 3 may get more than they bargained for! The first act will be a community choice – the Roswell Community Little Theatre is hosting a Battle of the Bands on the night before the Main Event, and the winner will get to perform on stage as the first opener.
In addition to the lucky winners of the “Battle of the Bands”, a second opening act called Straight Tequila Night, billed as a “90’s country tribute act”, will have a slot and appearance for the Main Event.
