Rest in peace Chris Ledoux, you are awesome!!
Remembering you on this day, Cowboy. 11 years ago... seems like yesterday. Thanks for the memories and may you rest in peace. -B
I got to know Chris' music in the late '80s with the Garth Brooks mention in "Much too young". After hearing the first LeDoux song I was hooked. I was born and raised on a Midwest cattle farm and have since taken it over from my folks. I even tried to be a bull rider before I married my high school sweetheart. I've always had Chris's songs in my heart. I was able to see Chris once live at "Little Bit of Texas" in Indianapolis. Possibly the best live show I have ever seen. I was able to sing "Look at you Girl" to my wife when we got married in 1996. Best day of my life, not only did I marry the girl of my dreams but I was able to use one of my hero's words to tell her how much she meant to me. I still, to this day put on one of Chris's CD's and feel like I'm 17 again living out my own rodeo dreams. And luckily I can pass down the stories, and music to my son and daughter on how the right way, the cowboy way, this life is to be lived. Chris was taken from all of us way too early. To the LeDoux family, thank you for sharing Chris with all of us fans. Just through his words in song, in interviews and the way he carried himself in person. It taught me how to be a better man.
Saw Ned at the Grizzly Rose last weekend. What a performance! So glad I talked my wife into going. Met both Ned and Will LeDoux at the merchandise table. Both are very nice young men. Keep on keepin' on, Ned!
Y'all are awesome. I never got to see Chris LeDoux live but I've heard the stories. Wish I would have been born sooner. I LOVE CHRIS LEDOUX!
JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE GIFTS I PURCHASED FROM THE STORE WENT OVER GREAT WITH MY KIDS AND IN LAWS. WILL BE MAKING A LOT MORE ORDERS FROM YOU ALL IN THE FUTURE! THE SIGNED CD WAS THE KICKER! HOW COOL!
I knew Chris in his rodeo days as I rode many rodeos with him and sat many nights listening to him sing. I had most of his collection from his eight tracks on. I'm sorry to say that they were stolen from me and I know I can never replace them. The best friend I ever had was taken from me. Ido my best to remember him and wish his family the best of the holidays. Preacher
Just placed my Christmas gift order! I even threw a couple things in there for ME!! Shhhhh...
We are so blessed to have lived so close to your amazing family. I seen Chris venture down our way when he came and watched you kids play basketball! He was the most down to earth, loving Father I've ever had the pleasure of being in the company of.
Chris is truly missed but lives on in our hearts and memories!
Merry Christmas and God Bless......
Home Sweet Home
Hearing Ned sing at the Gala gave me chills; he sounds so much like Chris. I was disappointed that you all weren't at the table reserved for you; I so wanted to wait on you and chat.
