Bonus Song Of The Week: “The Weary Kind”
Ryan Bingham is a Texas singer/songwriter whose work we’ve been digging for a little over a year. He might be ready to break it big on a national basis, with “The Weary Kind,” a song from the new movie Crazy Heart. Already Oscar talk has buzzed around star Jeff Bridges, and Bingham hisself might even show up on a nomination list for “Best Song.” The movie also stars Robert Duvall and Maggie Gyllenhaal and T-Bone Burnett handles the music direction. Crazy Heart will get a gradual opening over the next few weeks, and it should be at a theater near you by the beginning of February.
