Ryan Bingham, “Country Roads”

August 19, 2010

I have an undying love for this artist. Ryan Bingham has two albums that are pretty damn near perfect (Mescalito from 2007 and Roadhouse Sun from 2009), an Oscar-winning song, “The Weary Kind,” from the movie, Crazy Heart, and a third album that is due in a couple weeks. I just came across this video for “Country Roads,” from Roadhouse Sun:

Even though the songs stand on their own, you really must get the whole album to truly appreciate his work. I’ve listened to Mescalito more times than any album I’ve ever owned, including a ridiculous obsession with Weezer’s “blue album” when I was in high school.
