Early life[edit] The only child of Joseph Henry Burnett Jr. and Hazel Perkins Burnett,[1] Burnett was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1948, and raised in Fort Worth, Texas.[2] His grandfather worked as secretary for the Southern Baptist Convention. His father wanted to be a pro athlete and was courted by the Brooklyn Dodgers, but instead he got a job in Ft. Worth with the Tandy Corporation. Burnett was brought up in the Episcopal Church of his mother. He forgot the origin of his nickname, which he uses without a dash. Burnett learned golf an at early age. When he was seven years old, he played often at the Texas Christian University
Texas Christian University
course. He idolized golf pro Ben Hogan, who was from Ft. Worth and occasionally watched Burnett and the other boys practice at the driving range. He was on the golf team at Paschal High School. In 2014 he participated in the professional tournament at Pebble Beach.[3] Burnett's musical roots[edit] Burnett discovered music through his parents' 78s of Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Mahalia Jackson, Dinah Washington, and the songs of Cole Porter. He was drawn to music that took him to unconventional places, and he felt no compulsion to stick to one genre. He heard Peggy Lee, Hank Williams, and the Beatles on the radio, was influenced by Buddy Holly, and revered Johnny Cash. He was smitten by the music of Howlin' Wolf, Skip James, the Stanley Brothers, and Jimmy Reed.[3] He also learned about music through his friend, Stephen Bruton. Bruton's father was a jazz drummer who owned a music store on the Texas Christian University
Texas Christian University
campus where the boys spent many weekends. Bruton, a banjoist, revealed his interest in bluegrass music and field recordings from the 1920s and 1930s. Burnett was enamored with the live version of the song "Wrought Iron Rag" by the Dixieland revival band Wilbur De Paris
Wilbur De Paris
and His New New Orleans Jazz. The boys would sneak into clubs to hear bands.[3]:12 At around the same age, Burnett picked up the guitar. Overwhelmed by seeing the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, he started garage bands with Bruton. After graduating from high school in 1965, they spent most of their time at Sound City, a recording studio in the basement of a radio station where Burnett became fascinated by recording. He wrote and produced his first song, "Free Soul", with the Loose Ends under the name Jon T. Bone. His parents had divorced when he was in high school, and his father, with whom he was living, died in 1967. He attended Texas Christian University
Texas Christian University
briefly, then dropped out to work as an artists and repertoire (A&R) agent.[3]:13–15 Pursuing music[edit] Burnett produced and played drums on "Paralyzed", the novelty hit by the Legendary Stardust Cowboy[4][3]:16 As part of the pseudonymous group Whistler, Chaucer, Detroit, and Greenhill, he appeared on and produced The Unwritten Works of Geoffrey, Etc. (Uni, 1968).[5][3]:17 During the same year, he produced six songs for a group of friends who called themselves "The Case Hardy Boys". Later this band would move to Los Angeles and become known first as "The Fare", then "El Roacho", and would have songs produced by Burnett, Daniel Moore, and Steve Katz. He moved to Los Angeles and recorded The B-52 Band & the Fabulous Skylarks (Uni, 1972)[2] under the name J. Henry Burnett.[6] In 1975 and 1976, he toured with Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue.[2] When the Revue ended, Burnett and two other members of Dylan's band, David Mansfield and Steven Soles, formed The Alpha Band,[2] which released three albums: The Alpha Band (1976), Spark in the Dark (1977), and The Statue Makers of Hollywood
The Statue Makers of Hollywood
(1978).[3]:35–37 Burnett and singer-songwriter Sam Phillips were married in 1989 and divorced in 2004. He produced many of her albums, including Martinis and Bikinis and Cruel Inventions. He married Callie Khouri
Callie Khouri
in 2006.[3]:195 He has three daughters, including one from his marriage to Phillips.[1] Solo work[edit] In 1980, Burnett released his first post– Alpha Band
Alpha Band
solo album, Truth Decay, produced by Reggie Fisher, on the Takoma Records
Takoma Records
label. Truth Decay was a roots rock album described by the Rolling Stone Record Guide as "mystic Christian blues". In 1982, his Trap Door EP (also produced by Reggie Fisher), released on the Warner Brothers label, yielded the FM radio hit "I Wish You Could Have Seen Her Dance". Burnett toured after the release of Trap Door, opening several dates for The Who, leading a band that featured Mick Ronson
Mick Ronson
on guitar. His 1983 album Proof Through the Night, whose song "When the Night Falls" got some FM airplay, and his 1987 album The Talking Animals were more in the vein of 1980s new wave music, while his self-titled 1986 album was an album of acoustic country music. His 1992 album The Criminal Under My Own Hat tended toward adult album alternative music. Proof Through the Night
Proof Through the Night
was reissued by Rhino Records' Handmade Music in a limited edition of 5,000 on May 29, 2007, in an expanded version. The double CD also included the EPs Trap Door and Behind the Trap Door.[7] In 2006, he released two albums. The True False Identity was his first album of new songs since 1992, and Twenty Twenty – The Essential T Bone Burnett
T Bone Burnett
was a 40-song career retrospective. Production and other professional activities[edit] See also: T Bone Burnett

Elvis Costello
on the single "The People's Limousine," using the moniker "The Coward Brothers." In 1987, he produced Roy Orbison's two-record album, In Dreams: The Greatest Hits and two songs of Mystery Girl. In 1997, he wrote songs for the Sam Shepard
Sam Shepard
play The Tooth of Crime: Second Dance, which premiered off-Broadway in New York City with Vincent D'Onofrio
Vincent D'Onofrio
and Kirk Acevedo. An album of these songs, Tooth of Crime, was released in May 2008, featuring guitarist Marc Ribot, Sam Phillips, and David Poe, whose self-titled debut Burnett also produced that year. According to Burnett, he was inspired by the music of Skip James while composing songs for the updated version of Shepard's play.[8] In April 2006, he announced that his first concert tour in nearly two decades would begin on May 16 in Chicago at The Vic Theater. Around the same time, jazz singer Cassandra Wilson
Cassandra Wilson
released an album of blues songs, Thunderbird (2006), which was produced by Burnett. He wrote one of the album's songs and co-wrote another with Ethan Coen. He produced music for the remake of the film All the King's Men. In 2006 he produced Brandi Carlile's The Story album, the title song of which became a minor hit and was featured on a special broadcast of ABC-TV's Grey's Anatomy. Carlile's guitarist and bassist, twins Tim and Phil Hanseroth, respectively, used instruments from Burnett's private collection during the "live" recordings in Vancouver, British Columbia.

In early 2008, Pete Townshend
Pete Townshend
announced that Burnett was to go into the studio that fall to help produce an all-covers album for The Who.[9] However, on a May 15, 2008, episode of the NPR
NPR
radio show All Songs Considered, Burnett threw that project into question. He stated that Townshend had indicated in a blog that he was putting all his projects on hold.[10] In 2009, Burnett produced albums for Moonalice
Moonalice
and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.[11] In that same year, he also produced Elvis Costello's album, Secret, Profane & Sugarcane as well as co-writing the song "Sulfur to Sugarcane" with Costello.[12] Burnett produced a collaboration album by Elton John
Elton John
and Leon Russell. John, Russell, and Bernie Taupin
Bernie Taupin
(John's lyricist) wrote songs together in late 2009. The album, The Union, was recorded in January 2010 and released in October 2010. In 2010, Burnett produced Gregg Allman's album Low Country Blues (released in January 2011).[13] Code[edit] In 2008, it was reported that Burnett "started a new venture called Code, which aims to do for music what THX did for movie-theater sound: set standards that ensure the best possible quality."[14] He is opposed to the trend of brighter and more compressed processing, sufficiently so, that he essentially retired from the music business around 1995–1996 and pursued an opportunity to work in theater with Sam Shepard, leading to his work on several films.[15] The audio format known as Code involves the simultaneous release of multiple sound formats, thus avoiding much of the processing which happens when sound is converted from one format to another. The first album produced with Code was Life, Death, Love and Freedom
Life, Death, Love and Freedom
(2008) by John Mellencamp.[14] Work in films[edit] In 1992, Burnett worked on some songs with his friend River
River
Phoenix for the movie The Thing Called Love. He was the coach of Samantha Mathis.[citation needed] In 2000, Burnett produced the soundtrack and wrote the score for the Coen Brothers
Coen Brothers
film O Brother, Where Art Thou?. The award-winning soundtrack featured music from Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Gillian Welch, and others performing traditional American folk music, blues and bluegrass – reminiscent of Burnett's 1986 self-titled release. The album was a hit, garnering numerous industry awards from the Grammys, Academy of Country Music,[16] and the Country Music Association.[citation needed] The album was a commercial success and sold almost eight million copies, according to Billboard.[17] A documentary film, Down from the Mountain, was made of a benefit concert of the soundtrack performed by the artists on the album; Burnett figures prominently in the film. For producing the soundtrack albums for these two films, and for his wife Sam Phillips's album Fan Dance, Burnett won the 2002 Grammy Award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical. Burnett went on to produce the less popular gospel soundtrack to the Coen's The Ladykillers. In 2004, under the name "Henry Burnett", he arranged "I Wish My Baby Was Born" and wrote "Like a Songbird That Has Fallen" and "Scarlet Tide" for the movie Cold Mountain. "Scarlet Tide", co-written with Elvis Costello
Elvis Costello
and performed by Alison Krauss, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song and won BAFTA's Anthony Asquith Award for Achievement in Film Music. In 2005, he composed the score for Wim Wenders's film Don't Come Knocking. In 2005, he worked with actors Joaquin Phoenix
Joaquin Phoenix
and Reese Witherspoon for their singing roles as Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash
and June Carter Cash
June Carter Cash
in the film Walk the Line. Witherspoon won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the film, giving special thanks to Burnett in her speech for "helping her realize her lifelong dream of being a country music singer". He also produced that film's soundtrack album and wrote its score. In 2009, Burnett collaborated on music for the movie Crazy Heart, winning a Golden Globe, an Academy Award, and a Grammy Award for the song "The Weary Kind", which he composed with Ryan Bingham. Burnett was also a producer of the film, along with Jeff Bridges
Jeff Bridges
and Robert Duvall.[18] In 2013, he was executive music producer for the Coen brothers' film Inside Llewyn Davis. Real estate development[edit] With Bert Mathews, Burnett is the co-founder of Cloud Hill Partnership, a company that planned to redevelop Herschel Greer Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.[19] The proposed redevelopment of the 21-acre (8.5 ha) site included music and art space, a community center, open park space, and affordable housing.[20] The Cloud Hill proposal was abandoned in January 2018 after archaeologists determined that undisturbed areas on the edge of the Greer property, but not part of the stadium itself, were the unmarked burial sites of slaves forced to build the adjacent Fort Negley.[21] Awards and honors[edit] Grammy Awards[edit]

He shared the award for Best First Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards with the producers (Robert Duvall, Rob Carliner and Judy Cairo) and director Scott Cooper.[citation needed] Solo discography[edit]
