Chris LeDoux‘s son Ned made his Grand Ole Opry debut at the Ryman Auditorium last Friday night (Jan. 27). LeDoux performed his new single “Brother Highway” from his EP Forever a Cowboy. The song was co-written with Mark Sissel, a founding member and guitar player in his father’s band Western Underground.

Sissel played guitar for LeDoux as he performed “Brother Highway,” and Ned closed his Opry debut with a stunning acoustic performance of “The Hawk,” a song he wrote as a tribute to his Dad. Forever a Cowboy was produced by Mac McAnally and includes “We Ain’t Got It All,” a brand new song Chris LeDoux had started that was finished for the project by Ned and McAnally.
