Ryan Bingham on Letterman: “The Weary Kind”

If you caught the end of Letterman on Monday night, you caught Ryan Bingham‘s “The Weary Kind” – a Golden Globe nominated tune from Crazy Heart (a movie which by all accounts is fantastic). The song was written by Ryan and T-Bone Burnett.

I’m still waiting for the opportunity to catch Ryan live. Until that day, performances like this hit the spot. Make sure to watch the funny exchange between Dave and Ryan afterward.

    Whenever I hear something new like this – from someone who has so obviously been around a while, lyrics and melody dripping with genuine feeling and experience – I wonder how I could have missed it. Thanks for this, Pete. Made my morning.

    Great voice…simple guitar melody. Made the afternoon music selection at work. I like it just on the fact that he can pull off a beat up cowboy hat and old-school tennis shoes!
