Fresh off the news of "Scenic City Roots, Live from Track 29," the Southside venue has another reason to crow about its 2013 schedule.
Though already a seasoned musician at the time, the West Texas native rose on the national scene with the success of “The Weary Kind,” the theme song of sorts of the 2009 film "Crazy Heart," which he wrote with the legendary T-Bone Burnett.
Jeff Bridges, who played the damaged but brilliant character Otis “Bad” Blake, wasn’t the only one to become an awards darling thanks to the movie.
Bingham won a Best Original Song Oscar; Golden Globe; Critics’ Choice Award; and a Grammy for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.
After the whirlwind of the quick release of “Junky Star” in 2010 and subsequent tour, Bingham took a much-needed respite to deal with the recent deaths of both of his parents.
Now, the musician is back on the road with an album he recorded in an empty Malibu, Calif., house that, coincidentally, Kris Kristofferson once called home.
“Tomorrowland” is Bingham’s fourth studio album and a solo project without the accompaniment of his band, The Dead Horses.
The record brings new strains to the recognizable Bingham DNA: The 13 tracks have more of a punk than country edge to the rock 'n' roll, but the aching quality of the lyrics and the beautifully aged vocals remain.
The March 29, 18-years-old and up show begins at 9 p.m., with doors opening at 8 p.m. Tickets run $20 in advance and $22 the day of the show, and they will go on sale Friday, Jan. 25 at 10 a.m.
