    Ryan Bingham performs his Oscar-winning song from the film "Crazy Heart," starring Jeff Bridges. (Published Sunday, March 7, 2010)

    "The Weary Kind (Theme From Crazy Heart)" won Best Song for music veteran T-Bone Burnett and newcomer Ryan Bingham.

    Bingham, who also had a small role in the film starring Jeff Bridges as a down-and-out country singer, helped Burnett craft a remarkably good song that evoked the Haggard-era sound that director Scott Cooper was looking for and captured many of the film's themes.
