March 9, 2005 - Chris LeDoux, singer/songwriter and rodeo champion and acclaimed sculpture, passed away this morning at the age of 56 in Casper, Wyoming. He had checked into the Casper Medical Center earlier this week following complications from ongoing treatment for cancer of the bile duct, and was surrounded by family and friends at the time of his death.

"All of us at Capitol Records and EMI Music are saddened at the passing of Chris," said Capitol Nashville President and CEO Mike Dungan. "In a world of egos and soundalikes, he was a unique artist and a wonderful man. We have always been proud to represent his music, and honored to call him our friend. Our thoughts go out to his wife Peggy and the LeDoux family."

LeDoux, a former world champion bronc rider, started playing music in his teens, while he competed in rodeos, writing about his life on the circuit. His songs captured the romance, the freedom, the dirt and the hurt of rodeo, and drew fans who demanded tapes of his songs. LeDoux had recorded 22 albums on his own, when Garth Brooks mentioned his name in the hit song, Much Too Young (To Be This Damn Old). As a result, LeDoux's music became more widely known, and he signed with Capitol Records Nashville in 1990. He released 15 since then, and sold nearly six million records.

In 2000, LeDoux was diagnosed with a liver disease, and successfully underwent a liver transplant. Within six months of the surgery, LeDoux was on tour again - throwing himself right back into the hard-driving, full-force stage shows he was known for. Late last year he was diagnosed with cancer and began undergoing radiation treatment.

A devoted husband and doting father, LeDoux spent his time off the road with his family at their ranch in Kaycee, Wyoming.

When you live in Wyoming, you almost have to know who Chris LeDoux is! I have followed him since the 70's. In those days we didn't have TV following rodeos or anyone from the rodeos. We had to rely on friends and newspapers to tell us the results of competitions. All of wyoming is glad for Chris and his accomplishments.

Then I ran across a tape of his...of course I had to have it...since then I have been buying everyone I could. I finally got a chane to see him live in Laughlin, Nevada. This was no normal was an event. I go every year now. Going to one concert only makes you want to see more. I hope all of you enjoy the photos I take of him.

I want anyone who has had his/her picture taken with Chris/or holding a picture of Chris to send me the picture for this site. Just click on the E-mail link, please include your name, state/country, town, and where the picture was taken at, and date/year.

Thanks..hope to meet some of you one of these days..there are things I am proud of; my family, being from Wyoming, all of the kids I have taught, and being a member of the Chris LeDoux Fan Club and Posse.
