Ryan Bingham is a favorite of ours at Grimy Goods, and not just because of his rugged good looks but the man makes some pretty awesome rock-tinged, not-quite-alt country music that is like caramel for your ears. Bringing forth tunes that are both humble and honest, Bingham won an Oscar for writing the song “The Weary Kind” for the movie Crazy Heart (and he’s also nominated for a GRAMMY). Bingham is headlining the El Rey Theater on February 5, 2011 and we want to hook up a lucky winner with a pair of tickets AND a vinyl of his latest album, Junky Star.
