Widely recognized for his talent on the big screen, Jeff Bridges now takes the stage to demonstrate his country-inspired songwriting skills. The beloved actor shows fans a different side of himself with his new album and his first appearance on Austin City Limits.vHis new, self-titled CD was released on August 16, 2011, and Bridges says “This album is a natural extension of the love of music I’ve had all my life.”
Bridges has teamed up with famed producer T-Bone Burnett who also served as producer and music supervisor for Crazy Heart. Burnett earned an Oscar for Best Song for “The Weary Kind” which was co-written by Ryan Bingham. The album also features several of Bridges’ own compositions, including “Falling Short,” “Tumbling Vine,” “I Will Wait” (which he wrote with Burnett and John Goodwin) and “Slow Boat” (which he wrote with Burnett and Thomas Cobb).
