Inspired by their collaboration on "Crazy Heart," Bridges will record the album with his long-time friend, songwriter/producer T-Bone Burnett and will include several of Bridges' own compositions, along with material by a collection of other musicians.
Burnett has assembled a number of his key players to perform on Bridges' album, including Keefus Ciancia, Mark Ribot, Dennis Crouch, and Jay Bellerose, and guest vocalists Rosanne Cash, Sam Phillips and Benji Hughes.
