Flashback Friday: Reminiscing About Chris Ledoux

What better way to spend a Flashback Friday than reminisce about the late great Chris LeDoux.

LeDoux was a five-time qualifier for the National Finals Rodeo in bareback riding in 1970-71, 1973-74 and 1976.

In 1976, LeDoux won the PRCA Bareback Riding World Championship, edging out Jack Ward Jr. for the world title in Oklahoma City, Okla.

After his rodeo competing days were done, LeDoux went on to have a highly-successful career as an award-winning country music artist.

LeDoux died of cancer on March 9, 2005, at age 56.
