Bingham dropped out of school at 17 and was introduced to rodeo bull riding. He learned the emotional aspect of pain early in life, when shuttling between small towns and family members in the hardscrabble ranching communities of West Texas and Hobbs, New Mexico -- and became well-acquainted with the physical facets of pain during his years on the Southwestern rodeo circuit.
That ache is palpable in the grooves of Mescalito, Ryan Bingham’s Lost Highway debut, but what’s even more plain is the steely strength needed to overcome it -- a tenor that’s evident in both the singer-songwriter’s preternaturally wizened voice and his remarkably poignant songs, which resonate with roadhouse wisdom and rough-and-ready border-town piquancy.
The Beg For Broken Legs Songfacts reports that Bingham's fourth album, Tomorrowland, was recorded in Malibu, California with producer Justin Stanley and self-released through Bingham's new independent record label Axster Bingham Records on September 18, 2012.
He has won an Oscar for the best film song (Crazy Heart - The Weary Kind) in 2010.

- LyricsWhen I die, Lord
Oh, won't You put my soul up on a train
Won't You send it southbound
Give a cool blues man name
'Cause I've been lost on them back roads
- LyricsYour heart's on the loose
You rolled them seven's with nothing to lose
This ain't no place for the weary kind
You called all your shots
Shooting 8 ball at the corner truck stop
- LyricsDon't you wait for me 'cause I'll be runnin' late
Don't you wait for me by the flowers upon my grave
Don't you wait for me, I won't be comin' home
Don't you wait for me, unplug your the telephone
'Cause I'm wild runnin' through the hills
- LyricsEvery time I turn around
A man tries to get me down
I just can't see your face
I'm blinded by the sun, living on the run
And I can't remember this place
- LyricsI've lived without bread and I've lived without water
Stuck outside the middle of the desert wishin' I was home
Long way from no where, wishin' I was somewhere
Sangre de Cristo to the Devils Backbone
I've been to California and North Carolina
