Music From 'Yellowstone': Every Country Song Featured in the Series


Advertisement

One of the best parts of Yellowstone -- aside from those steamy Beth and Rip moments -- is the Paramount Network series' music. Music supervisor Andrea Von Foerster selects some of the best country music and Americana songs to capture the spirit of the show, which stars Kevin Costner as John Dutton, a Montana rancher trying to hold on to one of the biggest cattle ranches in the U.S. The popular series, created by Taylor Sheridan, is gritty, sexy, heartbreaking, and edge-of-your-seat thrilling, and, fittingly, so is its music.

Von Foerster opened up on the Yellowstone podcast with host and series star Jefferson White about why she gravitates toward a certain kind of music for the soundtrack. Specifically, red-dirt country and Americana, including songs by Colter Wall, Shane Smith and the Saints, Tyler Childers, Whiskey Myers, Hailey Whitters, Blackberry Smoke, Lainey Wilson and more.

"Red-dirt country, for anyone who doesn't know, is typically Texas and Oklahoma. Americana and country, and songwriting in general, and there's such a strong sense of storytelling in both states, and we tend not to use sort of deep south country because it's a little more name-checky, and sort of party... and we don't want to name a bunch of cities that are not in where we are."

She explained that she and Taylor Sheridan are constantly texting each other about music that could be on the series and finding new voices everywhere, from social media to submitted tapes. She also loves using musicians with a background in ranching and the rodeo because their stories reflect the landscape of the series and help serve some of the specific scenes. Bottom line, Von Foerster and Sheridan have done an amazing job bringing the show to life through its music, and in the process, have provided rising artists with a bigger platform than they could have ever imagined.

We've become good friends and worked together countless times since, something I never would've thought possible if not for that fateful night."

"Taylor Sheridan is doing so much for independent musicians that, in many cases, would have a really difficult time achieving those type of TV placements without a label behind them," Shane Smith told Wide Open Country in 2021. "Over the last 10 years, we've worked really, really hard to get where we are and have never been featured on any show or film before. Every fan we've made up to this point has primarily been through shows and touring, which requires tons of time away from home and sacrifice. This placement has given us such a massive boost, without all of that effort and it just means a LOT."

"I can't say enough about Taylor Sheridan, his work, and the way he supports and champions music alongside his projects. What he's created with the show Yellowstone is something special," Wilson said in a press release. "I grew up in the rodeo world and my Daddy was a horse trader alongside being a farmer. My parents put me on a horse before I could walk. So when I sit down to watch this show, it reminds me so much of my childhood and the cowboy that raised me. The show is full of characters who stand up for what they believe in and strive for good character - two things I think a man surely oughta know."

No country artist has been featured on Yellowstone more than Ryan Bingham. That's because the talented singer-songwriter, who won an Academy Award for best original song for "The Weary Kind" from Crazy Heart, portrays the ex-con turned ranch hand Walker, who frequently serenades the bunkhouse with his tunes.

Bingham says he landed the part after meeting show creator Tyler Sheridan.

"I met the writer, Taylor Sheridan, when he was working on the project. He initially contacted me about working on the project and maybe just writing some songs for the show. Once we met and started hanging out, he found out I grew up riding horses -- my family ranched out in New Mexico -- so I grew up doing a lot of that kind of cowboy stuff. So he said 'Well, I oughta just write you a part in the show.' He said 'I'll just write something small' (and said) 'If you do good, I'll keep you in there and if you suck we'll just kill you off,'" Bingham told Wide Open Country in 2018.
