Personalities | Chris LeDoux | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, guitar, songwriter, 1948–2005)

Chris LeDoux lived out many people’s fantasies of being a genuine cowboy and touring rodeo shows as a musician. Garth Brooks paid tribute to him in the song ‘Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)’, and was backing vocalist on LeDoux’s Top 10 single, ‘Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy’ (1992), LeDoux made well over 30 albums, and would have been an even bigger star had he not been diagnosed with cancer less than 10 years after his major breakthrough.
