Jeff Bridges won an Oscar in 2009 for playing a washed up country musician in "Crazy Heart" and now the actor is imitating his art with his debut solo album, "Jeff Bridges," which is due to hit stores on August 16.

"I'm pretty critical of myself as far as reaching some sort of perfect bull's-eye or target that I'm aiming for," Bridges told NPR'S Morning Edition of his upcoming album in a recent interview. "Sometimes you can get so obsessed with that bull's-eye that you miss the whole deal, because you're just so focused on what you think is perfection that you miss what really is perfection - which is just being alive... Life is having its way with me now. And I'm really pleased."
