It's funny how special memories come back to you at unexpected times. 18 years ago, I had the legendary Charlie Daniels on my radio show. It was during that visit that he revealed he had received a gift once from another legend - Wyoming's Chris LeDoux and he kept it forever.
If you were at Cheyenne Frontier Days over the past weekend, you know just how amazing the past weekend has been. And judging by how much love Cheyenne was shown on social media over the first few days since the start of the festival, plenty of people definitely took notice.
Rolling Stone Magazine, arguably the most popular and celebrated music publication of all-time released an article that speaks volumes to the talent of the legendary musician and rodeo star, Chris LeDoux. This comes just before the late LeDoux is to have the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days dedicated to him, along with a new bronze statue that will be unveiled today (July 23rd) at Frontier Park.
Cheyenne Frontier Days is just about a month away to the day as we are in the final countdown to the 125th anniversary of the 'Daddy of 'em All'. Not only does that make this year so special, as does the fact that it will be the first one since 2019, but also because this year, we celebrate the legendary world champion rodeo cowboy and country music singer, Chris LeDoux.
