Hot off his Oscar win for Best Actor for portraying a hard-living and hard-singing country musician in Crazy Heart, actor and musician Jeff Bridges has signed a recording deal with EMI's Blue Note Records. Bridges will release his major label debut in late summer. Bridges made me believe he was every inch Bad Blake in Crazy Heart and he deserved that Oscar, 110 percent. I cannot wait to see what he does on an album!
Bridges' album is reportedly inspired by his collaboration with producer T Bone Burnett on Crazy Heart, as if there was ever any doubt about that! Burnett will record Bridges' album and has assembled a number of his key repertory players to perform on the platter, including Keefus Ciancia, Mark Ribot, Dennis Crouch and Jay Bellerose, and guest vocalists Rosanne Cash, Sam Phillips and Benji Hughes. Bridges will contribute several of his own compositions as well as perform material by various songwriters.
Are you stoked to hear Jeff Bridges' album? What is your favorite Jeff Bridges role? Is it Bad Blake? Is it The Dude? The guy who kidnaps Sandra Bullock, buries her alive and then tortures Kiefer Sutherland in The Vanishing? His name was Barney something in that film.
