Music: Ryan Bingham
Ryan Bingham (b. 1981) is an Alternative Country singer-songwriter from Hobbs, New Mexico.

Growing up in West Texas, he dropped out of school at 17 and worked as a rodeo bull rider before recording 2007's Mescalito, an album of rough, rocking outlaw country. He followed that with Roadhouse Sun (2009) and the mellower Junky Star (2010).

His breakthrough came when he wrote "The Weary Kind" for the film Crazy Heart. The song won the Oscar for Best Original Song, and Ryan had a cameo in the film itself.

His latest album, Tomorrowland (2012), sees him moving from country to a fuller (though still primitive) roots rock sound in the vein of Bruce Springsteen, and rebellious lyrics inspired by the Occupy Movement.
