Merle Haggard's First Annual UFO Music Fest is an addition to the Roswell UFO Festival 2003 "Experience the Unknown." The UFO Festival is in its ninth year and draws more than 10,000 people annually to Roswell to revisit the site of the infamous 1947 "Roswell Incident." Festival highlights include the Plateau Wireless UFO Electric Light Parade, Classic Sci-Fi Film Festival, the Alien Costume Contest and the 10K Alien Chase Fun Run.
Singer, songwriter, remarkable musician, bandleader, and historian Merle Haggard may well be the most well-rounded country talent ever to take the stage in front of a microphone or an audience.
He is best known for his hit songs "(All My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers," "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive," "The Legend Of Bonnie And Clyde," "Okie From Muskokee," "Yesterday's Wine," "Sing Me Back Home," "Silver Wings," "That's The Way Love Goes," and literally dozens of other hits produced since he scored his first hit, "Sing A Sad Song" in 1963.
