Many of the tunes on these albums are Western or cowboy-style numbers, the kind of storytelling songs about that simple way of life that LeDoux is known for. Inside the box set are a number of photos of the artists, as well as a booklet about his life.

    norwegian cowboy

    I think chris ledoux is a great countrysinger and I hate that streamline country from Nashville.In fact,we can`t hear the difference between countrymusic and pop anymore.And a final kick to the artists.It`s allright with ballads,but we need fast tracks too to get that honky tonk feeling. Skedsmo westernclub in Norway rules.

    We need more like him!

    Chris Ledoux sings songs that the farmers, ranchers, and rodeo cowboys can relate to. There are not many like him in show-biz today! He is traditional with a ''little long haired outlaw '' in him. Great box set!

    Cassie, 16-year old cowgirl from Iowa:

    Chris LeDoux is the only country singer these days that hasn't turned to pop music for popularity. This is unbelievable that singers like Garth Brooks should need to do this to keep sales up. I think all country music should turn back to the good ol' rodeo music that Chris LeDoux sings, would make less trouble then this damn devil music teenagers my age listen to.
