On this day 13 years ago, Wyoming lost Chris LeDoux, a rodeo and western music icon. Chris lost his battle with Cancer on March 9th, 2005.

Today, Chris' legacy live on through his son Ned LeDoux who has a budding music career.  We also get a chance to celebrate Chris' life through rodeo and music at the festival in his honor at Chris LeDoux Days in Kaycee, Wyoming in the middle of June each year.

Chris was taken from us way to early, but his music and his legacy lives on!
