Put together and headlined by Bob Dylan, the Americanarama Festival of Music’s lineup also includes Wilc0, My Morning Jacket, and Ryan Bingham. The honor of touring with Dylan is not lost on Bingham, who first came on our radar through “The Weary Kind,” his Grammy- and Oscar-winning song from “Crazy Heart,” the 2009 film starring Jeff Bridges.
“Dylan is definitely a huge influence on what I do, and his music grabbed a hold of me at an early age,” Bingham says.
