A musical trivia

Chris LeDoux not only was a great entertainer, he was a real cowboy. If you listen to his music, you can hear it. His tales were spun about the rodeo trail, likely written on the rodeo trail. I met the man in the late 1990s at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson.

I was covering the rodeo for The Hutchinson News, and a day after Brittany Spears’ people tried to have the livestock removed from the grandstands infield before she’d take the stage, I leaned against the fence and chatted about rodeo with a legend. He watched the rodeo, telling me how much he liked Ike Sankey’s buckin’ horses. I listened intently. Who wouldn’t listen to a fantastic storyteller who wore a world champion’s gold buckle?

In what event, and in what year, did he win a PRCA world championship?

Congratulations to Denise, who posted the first correct answer. Chris LeDoux was the 1976 world champion bareback rider. There were a lot of correct answers, but Denise was the first to post. (I just got to the point where I could approve the comments.)

Keep coming back. TwisTED Rodeo will have more trivia questions, but you are welcome to post comments on any piece you wish.
