Washington Rodeo Gets Ned Ledoux to Fill Father’s Shoes
The biggest rodeo in the state of Washington, the Ellensburg rodeo, has been around for about a century, but it hasn't had a concert in 20 years. Wyoming's own Chris Ledoux was the last person to rock the stage two decades ago. This year, they've decided to bring back live music, and to honor Chris, Ned LeDoux is headlining.
It turns out Washington loves Chris Ledoux and his son Ned almost as much as we do in Wyoming.
The Washington town of Ellensburg, population 18,000+, actually kind of resembles a place in Wyoming. The small town near the center of Washington state has hosted the rodeo for over a hundred years on Labor Day weekend. Let's see if Ned sparks the beginning of the next hundred years.
