    I recently come across “The Weary Kind” by Ryan Bingham and it is amazing. So amazing I think EVERYBODY should hear it. Well through some research I found out that this is the theme song for the new Fox Searchlight film “Crazy Heart” directed by Scott Cooper and starring Jeff Bridges. Scheduled to hit theaters February 18th. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check it out and tell me what you think…i think you’ll love it! 😀
