|Angels Camp,CA...In country music, a last name like LeDoux casts a big, storied and bittersweet shadow, but it's one Ned LeDoux doesn't mind standing in one bit. Having been a drummer in his dad Chris' band Western Underground since 1998, Ned knew from an early age that he had "no plan b" but to play music, "Once I got the taste of the road, and being in front of a crowd and just the sound of it, it was...freedom."
For the last year, Ned has been steadily touring and opening for acts like Toby Keith, Chris Janson, Aaron Watson and Randy Houser. Yet now that he is in front of the mic, Ned has a new goal. "There's an age group who doesn't know who Chris LeDoux is and I just want to keep his name out there. I want to reintroduce him to people who've maybe heard of him but didn't know what he did. Just carry on his legacy and carry on his music and at the same time show them what I can do."
On tour, you're guaranteed to hear "This Cowboy's Hat"the song most requested by his fans and a request Ned is honored to oblige. His personal favorite song to singthough is one called
"We Ain't Got It All." It's the first original song Ned co-wrote with his dad and seems to pick up right where Chris left off. And with his debut EP "Forever a Cowboy" available now, there is a new voice to carry on the LeDoux sound.
Ned will be performing at the Calaveras County Fair on May 19 at 8 p.m. on the main stage. The concert is free with the price of admission.
Starts at 08:00 PM
