Chris LeDoux, A True American Cowboy
Chris LeDoux (1948-2005) was inducted into the Museum’s Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2006 after a career as a world champion bareback rider. His legacy endures through his success as a cowboy, music entertainer, songwriter and artist.
A decade after his death, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum pays tribute to this American icon through an exhibition developed to showcase his personal memorabilia, some never before displayed to the public. Included are two bronze sculptures LeDoux created, Wild Horse Fit and Eyeball to Eyeball. Both are on loan to the exhibition from his friend and fellow musician Garth Brooks. The temporary exhibition opens during National Day of the American Cowboy on July 25 and will be on display through October 18th, 2015.
