My husband and I love Chris LeDoux. We have had the privilege of seeing him twice in concert. He really pours his energy and heart out to his fans. We now pour our heart out to his family for their great loss. He will be missed! God Bless you Chris!

Chris was the epitome of "true" cowboys and country music. A friend introduced me to his music several years ago with a cassette tape she had actually bought from Chris at a rodeo. I had a chance to meet Chris several times, and he was such a sincere and humble man. There will never be another man like Chris!

GOD BLESS CHRIS LEDOUX!

Chris will surley be missed. I am glad I had several chances to see him and also meet him and chat awhile. Country music is going to miss a true country & western singing cowboy.

This has been one of the toughest pills to swallow. My wife gave me the bad news tonight and we send you our sympathies of the lost of your husband, father and brother.

It doesn't take long for the memories of Chris LeDoux to come flooded back. And I'm sure that you will have millions of emails saying the same, but that was the power of the man.

Our journey began when I started the rodeo circuit. He was in the truck, he was in the stands, he was in the chute, he was in the stock, and further more he was in our heart. I molded my life by his projections of how life was to be. I had the opportunity to meet him early in my career and found out that he not only sang about how to live, but lived like he sang. In the world of celebrities that is truly one in a million. And after that I was hooked on a longgggg eight-second ride.

Mr. LeDoux continued on my path through college. I was on the NCSU rodeo team and every party was blasting Chris LeDoux over and over. And I found it funny how I can get the women giggling when I explain the truth to Copenhagen. I met my wife towards the end of my college career and all I did was woo her with his love songs. Our first date was to the NC State Fair, where I was fitting cattle for show, and I sang County Fair, while we were stuck on the Ferris wheel. She laughed the whole night. She even told her mother by the second date that some cowboy labeled her the Copenhagen Angel. By the way her mom was not impressed. But she was.

We got married and she insisted on Mr. LeDoux song Two in a Million to be sung. That was the story of our life. The stars lined up for us to meet. I saw her sitting in front of her dorm, stuck there on fall break because she was a Resident Advisor, I was there for the State Fair. I went up to talk to her and we haven't been apart since.

My career ended shortly after we wed, not because of marriage but because of morals. I saw the rodeo circuit in a different light. My wife supported me, but I was loosing the feeling in the new breed of cowboys. They became the exact opposite of how a cowboy was to be. I wouldn't say that Mr. LeDoux told me, but he was like the Indians that would passed down tradition through songs and stories. I know that he still had a rodeo following, but they didn't live the cowboy way. I'm the type that if it isn't done right, I don't want to be a part of it. I ended up managing cattle for several companies and keeping Chris LeDoux in my heart. He wasn't only rodeo, but how Americans should live.

My wife and I have expanded our house with a boy and a girl. It is funny to me, looking back on life, thinking about how "Dad's Music Was Horrible." My children live for Mr. LeDoux. My son is one and all he does is grin and laugh when I play the tapes. He hasn't identified that reaction with any other music. And My Daughter who is five is a pistol. About four years ago, our family founded Harris Acres Farm. We are a 100% grass raised operation. My daughter is my little cowpoke. Thought it was a sin that she had to start school this year. She told me that cattle can give her an education. But the song that sits with her is Sons of the Pioneers. The radio can't go high enough. And she tries to live by the riding and roping and that she is a daughter of a pioneer. She knows that we were the first in NC to raise and market cattle this way and she is proud of it. After hearing the song Blue Bonnet Blues, she asked me what Blue Bonnets were. After telling her, she had to have some. We have a corner of the yard, full of blue bonnets that she planted. And Mr. LeDoux's words on how to live has been passed to her.

I would like to say thank you to your family for sharing the legend.

I would like to say thank you to God for giving us the gift of knowing Chris LeDoux.

And I look to the heavens and say thank you to Mr. LeDoux for shaping my life.

I know that the man has passed on, but one thing is for certain, the legend will never die.

Sincerely,

Patrick Robinette

I had the chance to see Chris LeDoux in concert in Pheonix, AZ a few years back. I have always enjoyed his music, but to see & hear him in concert was quite the experience! I'll never forget it.

I was so shocked when I heard the news on our local country station yesterday. I grew up in Seminole, OK listening to Chris LeDoux. I never saw him in concert, but have always loved his music. He will be greatly missed by all of his friends and fans!

Never had a chance to see Chris live in concert, but I really did like his music. His lyrics really hit home. We'll miss Chris
