...If they ever saw a sunrise on a mountain morning
or watched those cotton candy clouds go by
then they'd know why I live beneath these western skies

I got peace of mind and elbow room
I love to smell the sage in bloom
Or catch a rainbow on my fishin' line
We've got county fairs and rodeos
There ain't a better place for my kids to grow
Just turn 'em loose in the western summer time...

Chris LeDoux, Western Skies

I had heard of Chris but,hadn't heard much of his music.
The song that stands out the most to me is the one where he talks about his hat and the memories that it held for him.


Rest in Peace Chris Ledoux

Hmmmm, that is a little sad. I used to have a Chris Ledoux tape when I was younger. He had a song called "Hooked on an 8 Second Ride" that was uncharacteristically heavy for a country boy. He was classic country, and I know Garth Brooks had worlds of respect for him. He'll be remembered as a good one.
