Jeff Bridges Working On Album, Do You Know Actors Who Can Sing?
Can you name some actors who have gone on to have a singing career? There’s a lot who have put out albums.
Jeff Bridges is one of the latest actors to announce he’s working on an album. It’s set for release at the end of this Summer and is being produced by T Bone Burnett. They worked together on the soundtrack to Crazy Heart.
At Cheyenne Frontier Days, opening for Darius Rucker on July 28th will be actor Kevin Costner and his band Modern West. You’ll be able to decide for yourself if you think he’s going to make it as a country singer.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has surprised a lot of people with her recent country songs after her role in the movie Country Strong.
Comedian and actor Steve Martin has released his second album of banjo music with the Steep Canyon Rangers. He’s been playing banjo in his comedy act since he began.
Some of my other favorite actors to have success in music are The Blues Brothers. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi created the characters of Jake and Elwood Blues for a Saturday Night Live skit. Kevin Bacon has done well with The Bacon Brothers and Andy Griffith had a full-fledged singing career alongside playing Sheriff Andy Taylor on television.
