It’s uncanny how much Ned LeDoux sounds like his dad, Chris LeDoux.

The late country singer and rodeo star is survived by five kids, but his son Ned, 39, is the only one who has been following in his dad’s footsteps.

“I’ve always known music was the path I wanted to take,” he told me. “And I’m grateful every day that I can say I play country music for a living.”

On Friday (Dec. 2), Ned released a new five-song EP Forever a Cowboy, and on it is one very special song. It was one his father started, and he finished.

As for his own music, Ned is trying to pick up where his dad left off, and to stay true to the life he’s living.

“I’m just trying to put the cowboy back in country,” he said. “I’m a terrible pretender, so I just stick to my guns.”
