There are few men I have respected more than Chris LeDoux. Chris was a real man, a real gentleman, a real cowboy, a real family man and a real country singer. He never asked for any of the fan fair or glory, he just rode his horses and sang his songs while the rest of us reaped the rewards of his work. All artists and people for that matter, could learn a lot by how Chris lived his life. I am still waiting for them to make a movie about his life. I think it would be one heck of a story.

Chris would have been 70 years old today. He was born on this date in 1948 in Biloxi, Mississippi and left us way too early in March of 2005. We are paying tribute to Chris today and in fact I am going to start giving you some Chris every single Tuesday around 650 am. I am going to call it LeTuesday. I have loved him and his music for years and we will be sure to keep it living on in Northern Colorado. God Bless Chris LeDoux! Good ride cowboy...good ride.
