The 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days™ celebration is dedicated to the legendary Chris LeDoux. In 2021 a Chris LeDoux bronze statue will be added to the sculpture collection on Frontier Park. This sculpture is by artist D. Michael Thomas from Buffalo, Wyoming; and memorializes the tie of Chris LeDoux to the rodeo and music worlds and his place in Cheyenne Frontier Days™ history.
A World Champion bareback rider in 1976, this accomplished Wyoming musician blended his love of rodeo and writing into a music career that celebrated the Western way of life. A veteran of both the rodeo arena by day and the main stage at night, Chris LeDoux was a beloved part of our celebration.
We are proud to honor Chris LeDoux and his performances during our event with the dedication of this bronze on July 23, 2021.
