The theme to the Oscar-winning 2009 drama “Crazy Heart” was awarded the top song written for motion picture, television, or other visual media at the 53rd Grammy last week.
Bingham’s Grammy win, shared with co-writer T Bone Burnett, is yet another trophy the pair collected for the track: The two were previously awarded a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for the song performed by Colin Farrell and Jeff Bridges in the movie.
He's won the praise of music critics everywhere and, much more importantly than that, he won an Oscar for the Best Original Song for the song he co-wrote for the movie "Crazy Heart."
Bingham has also gotten rather involved in different initiatives like Farm Aid - he played the big Farm Aid festival last year with the likes of Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp. In fact, we got to know Ryan through Willie Nelson’s band, whom he frequently tours with.
