Rodeo Songs "Old And New" (Liberty)
by Chris LeDoux
Released: Jan 1973
Label: Liberty Records
Chris LeDoux wasn't the best singer, nor were his songs overly complex. But with a gift for story-telling and a keen sense of humor, the rodeo experience comes to life in LeDoux's songs, and overflow on Rodeo Songs Old and New. Whether he's singing about the frustration of the road ("Photo-Finish"), getting thrown from a horse ("Re-Ride") or star-crossed lovers ("Someday Soon") LeDoux's songs paint such rich images, listeners feel like they are watching a scene unfold before their very eyes. And it's his ability to paint the every man in his rodeo adventures that endears him to his fans, whether they be real cowboys or genuine wannabes.
