The winner has been chosen for the Boxcar Music Festival Talent Contest.

Bodfish local Joshua Wade Aigner will be opening for Ben and Noel Haggard at the Haggard Boxcar Music Festival on Sunday, April 22.

The final leg of the competition happened Friday night, when the last string of contestants poured their hearts out for a chance to perform at the festival.

As the declared winner, Aigner will be the opening act, receive a one-year membership to the Bakersfield Music Hall of Fame and have the opportunity to compile a three song EPK.

Country musicians gave it their all on stage when the first round of the competition kicked off earlier this month. Eyewitness News Mornings gave you a taste of what the competitors had to offer in March.
