Americana singer/songwriter Ryan Bingham was raised in rural Texas, where years of hardscrabble ranch work and rodeo competitions would later lend a sense of authenticity to his music. Drawing inspiration from Bob Dylan, Marshall Tucker, and Bob Wills, Bingham fashioned a road-weary sound that piqued the interest of of Nashville heavyweights Lost Highway Records, who signed Bingham and issued his major-label debut, Mescalito, in October 2007.
Following the success of Mescalito, Bingham followed up with 2009's Roadhouse Sun and alongside veteran producer/songwriter T-Bone Burnett he earned an Oscar for his hit "The Weary Kind," from the highly praised film Crazy Heart. Bingham and his band the Dead Horses followed it with the album Junky Star in September of 2010.
