Ryan Bingham is an Americana, roots rock singer-songwriter with 4 chart topping albums under his belt. Ryan is a young man, but he sings as if an older man who has lived a long, tough life. There is little question that Bingham has actually lived the life, spending years on the rodeo circuit, sleeping rough and pitching up at barrooms with his acoustic guitar.
Bingham performed two songs for the soundtrack of the movie Crazy Heart, including "I Don't Know," and the theme song, "The Weary Kind." In addition to these performances, Bingham wrote "The Weary Kind" and was produced by T Bone Burnett. He also had a small role in the film as Tony. On January 17, 2010, Bingham was awarded the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for "The Weary Kind" at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards. The song won Best Original Song at the 2010 82nd Academy Awards, as well as Song of the Year at the 9th Annual Americana Music Association awards.
