Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

CHEYENNE, Wyo. Country singer Chris LeDoux (luh-DOO') has died from complications of liver cancer.

LeDoux, who was 56, died today in Casper, Wyoming.

A spokeswoman for Capitol Nashville -- LeDoux's recording company -- says the singer was surrounded by family and friends at the time of his death.

LeDoux was a former world champion bronc rider who started writing and playing music in his teens, while he competed in rodeos.

He signed with Capitol Records Nashville in 1990 and released 15 C-Ds since then, and sold nearly six (m) million records.

In November, LeDoux canceled several tour dates while being treated for cancer of the bile duct. He'd had a liver transplant in 2000 after a long illness.
