It’s hard to overstate the impact that the hit TV series Yellowstone is having on country music.

The show is bringing artists like Ryan Bingham, Zach Bryan, Whiskey Myers and Tyler Childers into the mainstream and giving them an audience of millions of viewers every week.

The Season 4 premiere featured songs from Colter Wall, Hailey Whitters, Blackberry Smoke and many more. And our Yellowstone – The Soundtrack playlist, featuring every song from the series, is our most popular playlist we have on Spotify and Apple Music.

But aside from featuring some of the best songs that country music has to offer, the series is also inspiring new songs, like Rich O’Toole‘s “17 Wild Horses.”

Rich released the song this past spring, and the Texas-based singer and songwriter said in an interview that he was inspired by the series to write a song that was loosely based on one of Yellowstone’s main characters, Beth Dutton.

“I am a giant fan of ‘Yellowstone.’

I wanted to write a song about a girl who is like the character Beth: a wild cowgirl who rides into town and breaks your heart.”

Just need to get this song to Taylor Sheridan and music supervisor Andrea von Foerster so we can add it to our Yellowstone playlist.

And if you missed it, Rich recently stopped by the Whiskey Riff Raff podcast for a great conversation on life, the dirty truth about the music business, and of course, beans in chili. It’s a great listen.
