Derailed: Jeff Bridges Goes Country in Crazy Heart

Every so often I will be posting under the ‘Derailed’ heading. This is for posts that are outside my normal comfort area…indie rock/pop.

All the Oscar nominated movies are back in the theaters for a limited time…so I got to catch Crazy Heart. Jeff Bridges is one of my favorite actors and traditional country is something I was raised around and have a great appreciation for.  If you are a fan of the man or the music (or have a crush on Maggie Gyllenhaal, like I do)…see this movie!  If there is any justice he will take home the award for this amazing performance of a broken man.  Not to mention his voice; the dude sounds damn good singing country music…better than most of the concrete cowboys out there today!
