Ryan Bingham

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. Living alone since his mid-teens, Bingham shuttled back and forth between Southwestern border towns and relatives' homes, often sleeping in his truck after rodeo shows. It was during those treks that he began entertaining friends with the guitar, an instrument he'd learned at the age of 17 from a mariachi neighbor. Drawing inspiration from Bob Dylan, Marshall Tucker, and Bob Wills -- all of whom populated the jukebox of The Halfway Bar, a roadhouse owned by Bingham's uncle (whose musical tastes influenced those of his nephew) -- Bingham fashioned a road-weary sound that piqued the interest of a barroom proprietor in Stephenville, TX. Bingham was offered a weekly residency at the bar; soon after, he began issuing self-released albums like Lost Bound Rails and Wishbone Saloon. The material was brought to the attention of Nashville heavyweights Lost Highway Records, who signed Bingham and issued his major-label debut, Mescalito (featuring production by Marc Ford, former guitarist for the Black Crowes), in October 2007.

Mescalito was well received by critics, with Rolling Stone aptly comparing Bingham's raw, scratchy voice to that of "Steve Earle's dad." After supporting the album with ample tour dates, the songwriter reprised his relationship with Marc Ford, who produced 2009's Roadhouse Sun. Later that year, he joined another music veteran -- producer/songwriter T-Bone Burnett -- in contributing music to the film Crazy Heart. Revolving around the the attempted comeback of a down-and-out country singer, Crazy Heart became one of the year's highest-praised films and won a Golden Globe and an Oscar for "The Weary Kind," one of Bingham's original compositions written with T-Bone Burnett, the soundtrack's musical director and producer. Bingham and his band the Dead Horses followed it with the album Junky Star in September of 2010, produced by Burnett. Bingham left Lost Highway after three albums and released 2012's Tomorrowland, recorded in Malibu, CA and co-produced by Bingham and Justin Stanley, on Bingham's own newly created Axster Bingham Records imprint. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

True from the heart
Love his music!
This song is from the heat and soul. Wonderful song!
His early stuff is as good as it gets - wishbone saloon album is his best
do me
I guess I can't like Ryan Bingham or Chris Knight cause I'm from Rhode Island. We're all Americans and good music is good music.
Real music, that's what's important not where he's from. Add Chris Knight to your mix as well

F**k Texas!
cameronblynn
Makes me miss west Texas
He may have been born in New Mexico, but he was raised in Texas making him a Texan. Just as Dwight D. Eisenhower was born in Texas, but raised in Kansas making him a true Kansan.
He's from NEW MEXICO! Lovington, Hobbs area actually. Ask me...he's a distant cousin! His dad, George, is cousins with my grandpa, Lynn.
Sorry. He is from New Mexico. Not a native Texan. Still good though.

tn is s**t, TX is where music is made from the heart. Ryan, you are f**king AWESOME!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! !
Beautiful man, beautiful music. Puts on a fun and entertaining show too. Definitely underrated.
pdwestbrook - check out Jason Boland and The Stragglers. (i agree there is very, very little good music being released to the public!)
pretty bad a**
holy crap. THIS IS GOOD!

I musta been living under a rock.
pdwestbrook
the only true country music left
One of the most underrated artists out there.
dont read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. tomorrow will be the best day of your life. however if you do not post this comment to at least 3 songs you will die in 2 days. now you've started reading this so don't stop. this is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cause it actually works
This guys epic
This is why I miss Texas . This is why I miss New Braunfels and San Antonio.

Hard Times....onl y a voice like Binghams could sing a song with such grace, love this stuff
laladyrouge
just a good ol'e boy for sure he played at my house in San Marcos,Tx while he was living down in New Braufuls,Tx playing gigs at the river road ice house. I knew that he was bound for Stardum! But i can tell you that he has never strayed from his roots ran in to him down in Nola after his show at house of blues and he made sure to come and say hi and drink a cold one...if you ever cross paths with him offer him a cold shot of jager and all is well!!! Cheers Bingham proud of ya sir!
i love ryan!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
He is from New Mexico not Texas!
How can you not love the grit in Ryan's voice??!!! So Texan...and so awesome!
This is what country music should be! Albeit, there's a lot of blues here. Don't understand how the mainstream radio country crowd enjoys a strict diet of censorship, faux patriotism, and Republican party sodomy! lol
jamming to ryan alone on christmas eve night
winter of 2010-11, Billings Montana. small venue, bad acoustics. Nothing these great sounds couldn't overcome. This music is so real it should make Toby Kieth curl up in a ball and cry for forgiveness. great stuff
Saw him when he was living at the bar in Stephenville . HIs music is pure and honest.
Went to Vegas to his concert last weekend. It was an awesome concert!!!
When the day is DONNNNNNNNNN N N N E E E E E . . . . Love me some bingham.
Ryan Bingham is my one true love
amen, TX country over TN any day. Nashville is too fake. This guy actually writes his own songs.
momczyk724
Agree w/ corey and LAYNE too, not sure about Texas over Tennessee-ne v e r been
momczyk724
I agree w/pstanley57 . Nashville is so fake. For now my concerts days are over but would give what's left of me to see him. This is one of my very favorite songs as we can all relate to "this Depression".
cyet630
I ride into the sunset on my two wheel horse hearing the sounds of Bingham. Bad A**.
geezersmom
Texas over Tennessee any day!
Just saw these guys on Saturday,and they blew me away! Totally amazing! Glad to know there are still people making great music out there!
odddixon
Ditto
Western is better than country, no doubt about it. Not a big fan of anything coming out of Nashville, but this is good stuff.
maryquitecon t r a r y

aprazza

jacobcsmith2 4
OHHHH YEAH!!! i agree with you all the way jmargann
laladyrouge
Can Hardly wait to see him in New Orleans,La on March 22nd 2011....I would not miss it for the world my friend!!!
jmargann
a breath of fresh air. i cant understand why anyone would rather listen to the mainstream country bullshit when you have amazing artists like Ryan Bingham.
Like the thought that he was born in New Mexico!He sounds like he eats green chili. Thats a good thing.......
