Ryan Bingham & Dead Horses

On first glance winning an award that Eminem, Celine Dion, Jon Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Survivor, Kenny Loggins and Peter Cetera have been up for might seem like a backhanded compliement. But on second thought, being in the same company as Bob Dylan, Johnny Mercer, Cole Porter, Shel Silverstein, Elliot Smith and Isaac Hayes is nothing to sneeze at.

Long story short, thanks to his work as songwriter for the Jeff Bridges flick, Crazy Heart, Bingham is now the owner of a Best Original song Oscar. I have yet to see the movie, but can testify that Bingham is the real deal. I have been preaching about this Topanga Canyon via Austin, TX cowpoke for a couple of years now, and highly recommend anything he has recorded.

He is currently on tour with Jamey Johnson, The Lost Trailers, Jack Ingram and a handful of others, stopping of in Charlotte, NC on 5/27/10.

Here is a small sampling of some of my faves, including the one that earned him the gold statue.
