– Ryan Bingham will perform The Weary Kind
from the "Crazy Heart: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" tonight on David Letterman at 11:35 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.
The song is up for CMT's Favorite New Video with voting closing Jan. 14.
The movie has received much acclaim with Jeff Bridges starring as a country singer, who has seen better times. Bingham, who is also in the movie, has drawn positive press for his singing. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Robert Duvall also are in the movie.
"Crazy Heart: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (New West) and the deluxe edition of the soundtrack (featuring all 23 songs from the film, sequenced in their running order), will both be in stores on Jan. 19. The soundtrack was co-produced by 10-time Grammy Award winner T Bone Burnett.
Burnett co-composed the film's score with guitarist/songwriter Stephen Bruton, and co-wrote many of its original songs, including the pivotal track written throughout the film by Bridges' hard-living country singer, Bad Blake, The Weary Kind (Theme From Crazy Heart), written with acclaimed Texas singer/songwriter Ryan Bingham.
