King, Tony Bennett, k.d. lang, Elvis Costello, The Civil Wars, Taylor Swift, Ryan Bingham, Steve Earle and Leon Russell.

Burnett’s first major foray into film was his collaboration with the Coen Brothers on The Big Lebowski, and has since held multiple titles for numerous films including O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Cold Mountain, The Hunger Games, Walk The Line, Inside Llewyn Davis and Crazy Heart, for which he served as one of the film’s producers.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Burnett grew up in Fort Worth, Texas where he first began writing songs and making records. While traveling the country as a free-lance record producer, T Bone was asked by Bob Dylan to play guitar in his band on the (now-legendary) Rolling Thunder Revue tour, leading Burnett to form the Alpha Band with David Mansfield and Steven Soles. Burnett made three acclaimed albums with the group before making a string of solo records in the 1980’s at the end of which, he began to work in film, beginning with Roy Orbison’s, A Black and White Night.
