Ryan Bingham, the critically acclaimed Americana & Roots Rock Artist is returning July 1 & 2, 2017, to Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels! It is sure to be one heck of a show.

The most notable award Bingham has received is his song for “The Weary Kind.” “The Weary Kind” is on the “Crazy Heart” movie soundtrack starring Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Subsequently, he was awarded the Golden Globe for “Best Original Song” at 2010. The song won “Best Original Song” at the 2010 82nd Academy Awards as well as “Song of the Year” at the 9th annual Americana Music Awards. Ryan’s first two studio releases in 2007 and 2009 have solidified George Ryan Bingham with seriously bona fide vocal and songwriting chops. Bingham shared with his fans with the photo below with his caption, “Working up some songs for Steve Earle and me to play together at Whitewater Music Amphitheater in July. Can not wait!”

Bingham, who has opened for Willie Nelson, is a perfect, polarizing combination of sensual grit that is not typically found in today’s music. His songwriting ability speaks for itself. Bingham hails from the desert town of Hobbs, New Mexico, which borders West Texas. He moved around, spending time in Bakersfield, California. However, he spent quite a long time in the Midland/Odessa area and attended high school in Houston, Texas. After leaving home at 17, Bingham lived the rodeo circuit as a bull rider. Dually, he often grabbed his guitar and sang while out on the road. Bingham began making a name for himself and pioneered with a band in tow. Ryan eventually relocated to Los Angeles, where he performed in a small bar in Hollywood where he caught the attention of a film agent. The rest is written in music and movie history. Do not miss this Fourth of July celebration that will be one for the books!
