Hey WU Nation! We've been kickin' around a little this year and having a great time doing it. 3rd annual Chris LeDoux days was a blast and if you haven't made it out for one yet better make a note on your calendar for next year, Father's day weekend. It's a real western homegrown Saturday night in the streets of Kaycee. We always run into a lot of old friends at that event as happens in Greeley, out at Country Jam Colorado, Crystola, Cheyenne, Montana and on and on. Can't tell you how much it means to see all of you at the shows. It was 1989 when Chris brought us in and named the band Western Underground and 24 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.
Check out the Gallery page
for a few photos from A brand
new project titled One Ride.
Inspired by the music of
Chris LeDoux, WU takes the
stage in a part concert, part
musical, part dance, and full
tilt, rip roarin' production you
won't want to miss.
(not yet touring, but in the works)
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"
