After laying relatively low for the last two years, acclaimed singer-songwriter (and man we’d like to nominate for a Hell On Wheels guest spot — look at that face!) Ryan Bingham is finally back with new music.
Bingham, of course, is the New Mexico native whose work with T Bone Burnett on 2009’s acclaimed Crazy Heart soundtrack included the song “The Weary Kind,” which earned him an Oscar, Golden Globe, and a Grammy — and an Americana Music Association designation as 2010’s Artist of the Year to boot. In other words, Bingham’s halfway to full-fledged EGOT status!
Could his new album, Tomorrowland (out Sept. 18; preorder links here), help snag him more awards? Barring unforseen stage-bound circumstances, “Beg for Broken Legs” probably won’t snag him that elusive Tony, but we’re still glad to have it exclusively on the Music Mix.
