R.I.P. Chris LeDoux

Just pile it on. The week from hell continues.

One of my all-time favorite singers, Chris LeDoux, has passed away from liver cancer.

I realize most people have no idea who Chris LeDoux was, but I am a huge fan of his. I have at least 10 or 15 of his tapes and cds. Most of them I bought on a trip to Montana a long time ago. You could not find anything from him around here in the Northeast but when I was out visiting The Big Sky Country, I found a bunch of his tapes in some old record store and bought pretty much every one they had.

I used to listen to 'Old Cowboy Classics' every night to fall asleep and one of my favorite albums of all time is 'Western Underground'.

Whenever I am in a bad mood I still like to put on his tapes. The stuff he sings about always seems to help me get in a better mood. His songs are always upbeat and positive and he sang a lot of songs about places I love like Montana and Wyoming.

I'm gonna miss your voice Chris.

I'm sure wherever you are there is a prarie with a river winding through it, good, strong coffee and a beautiful sunset every night.

Later Cowboy.
