Jeff Bridges went country for Crazy Heart.
It wasn't that hard for the ever-amazing actor though and playing Crazy Heart's Bad Blake shows just how good Bridges really is. The hard-drinking redemption-seeking country star stands out—an unforgettable and thought-provoking character that'll summon audiences back along his tattered road again and again.
Jeff spends a lot of time listening to his favorite music, and he sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino in this exclusive interview to discuss what's on his playlist.
Check out Jeff Bridges' playlist below and don't miss him in Crazy Heart!
Jeff Bridges' Playlist:
1. Hank Williams
Hank Williams' traditional country is right in the pocket. You can't get much more country than Hank. Outside of that bullseye, you get strings and more lush things. It's all music basically.
2. Greg Brown
I'm digging Greg Brown a lot! He wrote a song for our movie.
3. John Hammond
One of my favorite albums from a couple years ago was Wicked Grin, a John Hammond album of all Tom Waits tunes. Tom produced the album. I love that record.
4. Michael McDonald
Michael McDonald produced an album of mine called Be Here Soon. I'm a big fan of Michael's. He's nailing that Motown stuff. Gosh!
