Ryan Bingham & My Crazy Heart

Ryan Bingham & My Crazy Heart

I can’t tell you how much I love singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham.

Words fail the beauty of it.

He ranks right up there with Chevrolet (my dog, not the truck).

The thing about Ryan is his voice, his singing voice, his song writing voice, his easy on the ears conversational voice.

His heart. You can hear his heart. It is vast.

He isn’t hard on the eyes.

Boy, he’s got a good smile.

I missed his time on the rodeo circuit but met him before his Grammy, Golden Globe and Oscar for the soundtrack to Crazy Heart, a 2009 Jeff Bridges film featuring Bingham’s original song “The Weary Kind.”

By a wondrous twist of fate, I was in the audience to watch Ryan Bingham win that Oscar.

If you have a chance to catch him live, solo or with the band, please go, you won’t regret it.

In 2012, he released his fourth studio album, Tomorrowland, on his own label.

Listen to Song Travels via the link…he performs selections from the new album, including “As I Do My Dancing” and “Too Deep to Fill” and more…http://www.npr.org/2013/02/08/171492085/ryan-bingham-on-song-travels
