Western Underground Hangs up Their Hats at Chris Ledoux Days
This year's Chris LeDoux Days in Kaycee, Wyo., will have a very special last musical performance of the band that helped put our state on the musical map--Western Underground.
Western Underground has announced they are officially stepping out of the spotlight and handing the reigns to Chris' son, Ned, as he continues the legacy.
Ned been playing drums in the band since 1998. After his father had passed away in 2005, Ned followed his boot steps by picking up the guitar and singing a few songs. He continued to grow as an artist of both his father's music as well as writing his own songs. Some of the songs in his repertoire are unfinished pieces written by Chris that Ned helped complete.
Although the band's website says Western Underground is out of the spotlight, they say they will continue to be a part of Ned's music along his journey.
Chris LeDoux Days may be one of the "most Wyoming" small-town festivals you can do this summer.The summer event hosted in partnership with the LeDoux family that features a variety of rodeo, music and dancing.
In addition to Western Underground and Ned, this year's event will feature musician Corb Lund. There are rodeo events and a trick riding act called the Daredevil Darlings.
Kaycee is located about 70 miles north of Casper and about 45 miles south of Buffalo. It's a small town that is know for agriculture and minerals.
