So back to the music. I have a lot of fond memories of country music from growing up in the Queen of Cowtowns from the races, going to the bars and dancing (kids could stay until 10 because they served dinner) and at the street dances.
Here are some that make me smile and brings back good memories. I'm going to leave out the amazing Garth Brooks this post because A. He's featured in Whatcha Gonna Do With a Cowboy and B. I featured him in the 90s Music Post :) Also, I don't think he would mind I skipped him since Chris is getting an awesome feature and they were friends.
I want to start this off with some great music from a great singer, Chris LeDoux. I was very fortunate to meet him when he came to Dodge City and was at the Gibson's store signing autographs. He was such a nice, nice guy. I no longer have the photos with him but he was so nice to an awkward small town girl. He signed an extra one for my mother. The very cool thing about MOST of the country artists when they came to town, they'd get down with the locals :) RIP Chris LeDoux
Should've Been a Cowboy was written in Dodge City about Dodge City. Very cool, huh?
