Chris LeDoux, hall of famer.

.: Albany Democrat-Herald :. Archives: Chris LeDoux, for whom the 2005 Linn County Fair concert series is dedicated, was inducted posthumously last Saturday into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colo.
LeDoux and his band, the Western Underground, were popular around the rodeo circuit and performed nationally with Garth Brooks, Bon Jovi, Toby Keith and Charlie Daniels, among others. Daniels said he treasures the gift of a bronze sculpture hand-crafted by LeDoux.

On July 30, the governor of Wyoming will declare Chris LeDoux Day during the annual Cheyenne Frontier Days celebration.

Even cowboys like a little rock-n-roll heaven.
