Jeff Bridges Will Record a New Album


Jeff Bridges could really get used to this musician thing. Hot on the heels of his Oscar-winning turn as a boozed-out country singer in Crazy Heart (and his semi-mystifying inclusion in the ultramystifying remake of "We Are the World"), the actor has inked a deal with EMI to record his own album. The record will be produced by his Crazy Heart cohort T Bone Burnett and feature songs written by both Bridges and the movie's other Oscar champ, Best Original Song winner Ryan Bingham. [Fox 411]
