Jeff Bridges won an Oscar for his portrayal of a washed-up country singer in 2009's Crazy Heart. Having played music most of his life, Bridges released his first album in 2000 and his most recent was 2011's self-titled, produced by T-Bone Burnett (who did the music for Crazy Heart). You can stream it at a if you please. Jeff and his band, The Abiders (hey, the dude knows his audience!), will be heading out on tour this summer.
