New Mexico’s newest country music star made a special stop in the Duke City on Sunday.
Sixteen-year-old Chevel Shepherd won ‘The Voice’ last month, and Sunday the Farmington native visited Albuquerque fans at the Buffalo Wild Wings on Montgomery and Wyoming.
Dozens of people lined up before the event even started, eventually getting autographs and photos with Shepherd.
“It feels great to see all the support from the people from my home state and to give back to them, because without them I wouldn’t be here and I want to meet them and thank them personally,” said Shepherd.
She also says she’ll have a concert at the Farmington Civic Center later this month, and then she’ll start working on a new album with her coach, Kelly Clarkson.
