Inscription.  T Bone Burnett was born in St. Louis and grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, where he began making records in 1965. He toured in Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue from 1975-76, and in 1980 he released "Truth Decay," the first of several critically acclaimed solo albums. Burnett later concentrated on producing such artists as Elton John, Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello and B.B. King. Burnett won 13 Grammy Awards, including five in 2001 for the "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack, and received Academy Award in 2010 as co-worker of the Best Original Song "The Weary Kind" from the film "Crazy Heart."
