T-Bone Burnett

Age: 62
Occupation: Musician and producer
Previous TIME 100 Appearances: 0

Burnett makes movie sound tracks that sound like fully realized albums. From the O Brother, Where Art Thou? score to Crazy Heart's "The Weary Kind" — for which Burnett won an Oscar at this year's Academy Awards — every song he touches turns to critically acclaimed yet commercially successful gold.
