Wild West Cowboy Wins Oscar!

It's that Ryan Bingham guy again, this time, holy cow, winning an Oscar for the Best Original Song in a film, for his song "The Weary Kind" in the film "Crazyheart". He worked with us in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show (La Legende de Buffalo Bill) Disney Village, Disneyland Paris France, several years ago. He's a great guy, a good hand, and clearly a fantastic song writer. Some other members of the "Wild West Show Family" (all folks past and present associated with the cast) joined Ryan at the Fox Searchlight Oscar party. They took photos with Bingham and the legendary Jeff Bridges, who also won an Oscar for Best Actor in the same film, "Crazyheart". Apparently ex-cast member Mike had everyone at the bar laughing. WITH him, I'm sure. Here's Bingham singing his award-winning song:

  1. We met in Paris at the Wild Westr Show. Hung with the cowboys for a couple of weeks and my wife and I played at Billy Bob's. We're touring musicians and write and perform original cowboys songs. Can I send you a copy of our CD? Thanks.. Woodie & Cleda Jane Cochran. P.S. Have you heard from Tim Edge?
