Sad News...

Yahoo! News - Country Singer Chris LeDoux Dies at 56

"CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Chris LeDoux, a world champion bareback rider who parlayed songs about cowboys he knew on the rodeo circuit into a successful country music career, died Wednesday from complications of liver cancer. He was 56.
LeDoux died Wednesday in Casper, according to Judy McDonough, spokeswoman for Capitol Nashville, LeDoux's recording company."

...Always one of my favorites...there were few of my playlists that didn't have a Chris Ledoux song on them. Just goes to show how you gotta Live, cause it never goes on long enough. So here's to a dying breed, and a real life Cowboy...Vaya Con Dios...

"Now there's one less tornado in Texas
And a saddle that's empty tonight
There's one hell of a cowboy in Heaven
At that big rodeo in the sky
Ohh that big rodeo in the sky"
(One Less Tornado, by Chris Ledoux from the album Horsepower)
