Well we had another great time at the 4th annual Chris LeDoux Days on June 14. A little rain and cooler weather didn't slow anyone down that day. The streets were full, the music was loud and everybody felt like a friend. We met a lot of first timers at the event and some that drove from long distances just to be apart of it. Mark your calendar for June 20 2015 and we'll do it all again.
We were also honored to kick off the Greeley Independence Stampede for the 3rd year running. It's such a great night and an awesome event and you can't work with a nicer group of people. Followed that up with 2 nights at the Crystola Roadhouse. That place has become a home away from home. It has a vibe all it's own and can't say enough good things about that crew and our friends and fans that come to those shows. It's a small place with a big attitude and can't wait to go back.
It means a lot to see all of you at the shows. It was 1989 when Chris brought us in and named the band Western Underground and 25 years later we're still making music together. We all miss Chris every day and it always feels good to play his songs so if you haven't made it out to a show then load up the truck and bring the party... we'll be ready.
To the Underground Nation.... If you haven't had a chance to see LANE TURNER with Western Underground it's time to get out to a show. A former Warner Bros
recording Artist, Lane brings a deep love of country music, and an energetic approach to fronting a show. Come on out, and
Say hey. It just keeps getting better.

Inspired by the music of
Chris LeDoux, WU takes the

Kaycee, WYD Michael Thomas has created an incredible bronze statue of
Chris LeDoux, riding Stormy Weather, titled, GOOD RIDE COWBOY.
On June 19th, 2010, the Chris LeDoux Park was dedicated, and
this incredible sculpture was unveiled. Over 3,500 people from
around the country showed up to honor a great man. It was an
awesome day and one that we will never forget. There are some
excellent pictures at www.chrisledoux.com under the "monument"
heading. Check them out, and you mught be interested in a
T-shirt from the event also. Go to the store and have a look around.
WelcomeThanks for stopping by and lookin' around. There's nothing slick about Western Underground, just a love for clean, hard drivin' rodeo rock and roll, and a desire to carry on the great music of Chris LeDoux, while we create some music of our own.
Take a minute and look around, and leave us an e-mail, story, joke or a whatever tickles your fancy.
If you're a LeDoux fan, then hit the gallery for some great photos and memories of that incredible journey with Chris and WU on tour.
To all of the countless, loyal fans, that showed up, shook the timbers, and kicked every concert into overdrive. We're grateful for what you did then, and we look forward to what's in store ahead. It's always been one big family, and we mean to keep the family together.
Join in and be apart of the team, and let's make some "Good Ol' Days to come"
