SIKESTON - Marc Christian sings of the lost love of a rodeo clown.

Christian took his guitar and his camera to local landmarks such as the Sikeston Depot Museum and the Sikeston Jaycees Bootheel Rodeo arena last week to tell the story of "Rodeo Queen," one of the songs on Brother Slade's first CD, "No Relations."
