Chris LeDoux American Cowboy

Chris LeDoux is an iconic American Cowboy. By all accounts, he was bound and determined to become a world champion, which he did, then when he hung up his spurs for the last time, he decided to chase his dream of becoming a country music singer. Chris started writing songs long before he became the 1976 PRCA world champion bareback rider, but he felt like earning that gold buckle legitimized his rodeo cowboy country music. The first song he ever wrote, Bareback Jack, is still an anthem to today’s bareback riders. In this final installment of Wrangler Network’s tribute to Chris LeDoux, tomorrow’s legends of rodeo talk about the influence Chris had on their lives as professional rodeo cowboys. A brand new exhibit dedicated to Chris opens at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. For tickets and information about the exhibit, call (405) 478-2250.
