Yeah. He was a huge influence for people like Garth brooks and wrote some great songs.

Has he done any recent stuff?

He was a rodeo cowboy, bronc rider to be specific. He sang cowboy and western music. He was well regarded in the rodeo circuit, and he had some mainstream success in the 1990s.

I really liked a lot of his stuff.

RIP

Liver disease.

He did a ton of self produced, self recorded albums that he sold at his shows on the rodeo circuit back in the 70s and 80s. He recorded Amarillo by Moring before Strait did. Not sure how easy those are to find these days.

Check out his Cowboy album from 2000 - after he got to be well known, he went back in the studio and re-did a lot of his older rodeo songs.

Other good albums that are probably easy to find are Western Underground, Whatcha Gonna Do with a Cowboy, Haywire, and Horsepower.

Check out his son, Ned LeDoux, on YouTube. Sounds exactly like his dad.

Neither he nor George wrote the song. They both covered it.

Hooked on an 8 Second Ride is up there with This Cowboy's Hat as his greatest. Might be the best rodeo song there is.
