I grew up listening to and singing Chris Ledoux’s songs. My kids grew up listening and singing Chris Ledoux songs. I would have to say of all the cowboys I look up to he probably is the number one. He had gone to college in Casper several years before I did and they still talked about what a great cowboy and person he was. I was inspired by how much try he had as a singer and bareback rider.
I went to a concert of his in Nebraska and they had a bucking machine come up on stage with him spurring the heck out of it and singing “Bareback Jack”. I’m not much of a concert goer, but I sure enjoyed that one. I remember he introduced his son Ned as one of the drummers in the band.
Well that was a long time ago. I listen to Pandora and one of my favorite stations is Ian Tyson. I heard a favorite Chris Ledoux song but it sounded different. I looked at it and it was Ned Ledoux. He is so good.
So now it is working the other way. I have become a big admirer of Ned Ledoux so that family has been entertaining my family for over forty years.
I hope you enjoy it and will listen to some of both Father and Sons songs.
