Jeff Bridges will pick up his guitar again for Southland performances next month at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles and at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, and he'll be joined at both by his band, the Abiders. Bridges will play the El Rey on April 25, then heads to Indio for his Stagecoach performance the following day, wrapping up a tour of five Western states with a dozen stops. He'll be drawing from his 2011 major label album, “Jeff Bridges,” as well as from some of the material he sang for his Oscar-winning role as washed-up country singer Bad Blake in the 2009 film “Crazy Heart.” His tour opens April 1 in Folsom, Calif., but at Folsom Lake College, not Folsom Prison.

Townes Van Zandt, the tortured Texas troubadour who drank himself into an early grave, had a sad, sly song called "No Deal" in which a used-car salesman hands him the keys to a sedan with no engine and then explains: "You don't need no engine to go downhill, and I could plainly see that's the direction you're headed." The lyric drew a hearty laugh from Jeff Bridges, the actor who is getting perhaps the best reviews of his long and illustrious career for "Crazy Heart," which presents him as country singer Bad Blake who, like Van Zandt, is in desperate need of a spiritual handbrake.

When Jeff Bridges won lead actor honors at the Golden Globes last month, he thanked the usual suspects: his loving wife, his agent, his "Crazy Heart" director, his publicist. And then he said something a bit less predictable: "I want to thank my stand-in, Loyd Catlett. We've done over 50, 60 movies together, man. Thank you, Loyd." "When he said my name, I froze for a moment: 'He just said my name,' " said Catlett, who had been watching the show at his San Diego home. "I didn't expect it. It was some form of recognition and thank-you."

As an actor, Jeff Bridges followed his Oscar-winning turn as down-but-not-out country singer Bad Blake in "Crazy Heart" with an Oscar-nominated spin as down-but-not-out lawman Rooster Cogburn in "True Grit. " Now comes the news that Bridges will pick up a guitar once more, not for "Crazy Heart II," but for an album slated to be produced by his longtime friend, producer and "Crazy Heart" prime mover T Bone Burnett. Bridges has signed with Blue Note Records and is scheduled to release his major-label debut album late this summer, according to a statement released Tuesday by Blue Note.
