ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ned LeDoux is a musician and the son of singer-songwriter and rodeo icon Chris LeDoux. He got his start as a drummer in his dad’s band, Western Underground, in 1998, and he knew from an early age that he no Plan “B”—he had to play music. When Chris passed away in 2005, Ned continued to tour with his father’s band and picked up the guitar and tried his hand at some of his dad’s songs. He has continued where his dad left off, finishing songs that Chris started and recording and performing. With Ned next in line, there is a new voice to carry on the LeDoux sound.
"Some People Do" words & music by Ned LeDoux & Will LeDoux & Mac McAnally.
