Gold Buckle Dreams/I?> is about one such cowboy: Chris LeDoux, the 1976 World Champion Bareback Rider. But more than that, it is the true story of a clean-cut, gentle, quiet, and unassuming American cowboy who made a dream come true. And in the process discovering--and willingly paying--the price it takes to become the best in the world. On the road, Chris meets up with all you'd expect to encounter while trying to make it in the most dangerous sport on the North American continent: the heartbreaks and camaraderie, the knocks and injuries, inadequate prizes, long dry spells between wins when cowboys are sleeping 16 to a room and living on pork & beans, the help and advice of veteran rodeo cowboys, the crazy antics, pranks, and practical jokes, and the hard-won victories.
Showcased are some of the hundreds of rodeo and cowboy songs that Chris LeDoux has written and performed over a decade, songs about his life and the lives of other cowboys and ranchers. If you've ever listened to one of his tunes on your radio, now you'll understand the meaning behind those hard-earned memories.
