[Win This!] Ryan Bingham Junky Star Swag

Once you got past the fact that it played like a mashup of The Wrestler and Tender Mercies, Crazy Heart was a damn fine film, regardless of how you feel about country music. Even my ladyfriend enjoyed it, with the exception of throwing up in her mouth a little every time Jeff Bridges made out with Maggie Gyllenhaal. At the end of the day, the film’s biggest winner may have been bull rider turned troubadour, Ryan Bingham, whose rugged good looks made him a legion of new fans, and whose songwriting chops scored him all sorts of shiny new knickknacks for the mantel.

On August 31st Lost Highway will release Junky Star, Bingham’s third full-length, and the second with his crack backing band, The Dead Horses. With mainstream success seemingly within his grasp, and not wanting to break up a winning combo, Bingham has enlisted Crazy Heart producer T-Bone Burnett to reprise his role on Junky Star. The “bootleg” video for the record’s lead single, Depression, has been making the rounds on the Internet for a few weeks, and I think it’s safe to say lightning may have struck twice.

    Why would someone throw up in their mouth if they saw Jeff Bridges and Maggie G. kiss? Your ladyfriend doesn’t appreciate a man who has had silver screen sex appeal for 40 years or is it Maggie that made her feel sick? It wasn’t a very intelligent or kind thing to say.
