“The Weary Kind” Scores Oscar
“The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart),” written by Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett for the movie Crazy Heart, was named best original song at the 82nd annual Academy Awards Sunday night (March 7). It was the first win for both Ryan and T Bone; T Bone previously was nominated alongside Elvis Costello for “Scarlet Tide” from Cold Mountain in 2004.
Ryan, who records for Nashville's Lost Highway Records, thanked his wife during his speech, saying he loved her “more than rainbows.”
Earlier this year, Ryan and T Bone won the Golden Globe for the same song.
Meanwhile, Jeff Bridges, who played Bad Blake in the film, won the Academy Award for Best Actor.
