Season 5 is set to premiere on November 13th, and all signs point to it being the best season of the show yet. John Dutton (Kevin Costner) is running for Governor of Montana, Jamie (Wes Bentley) just killed his biological dad, Rip and Beth (Cole Hauser & Kelly Reilly) practically adopted a kid, Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) saw “the end of us,” and Jimmy (Jefferson White) and his new fiancée are headed back to the 6666s…
Meanwhile, Summer is in jail, Caroline Warner wants to sue Beth, Mo Brings Plenty is still a badass, and Walker (Ryan Bingham) can still play the guitar.
It’s gonna be good.
Anyways, to get to the real point of this blog… the music.
Don’t get me wrong… I love the show, love the scenery, love me some Kevin Costner, but it was the music that really hooked me.
The music of Whiskey Myers is featured prominently throughout the series (and the band made an appearance as a bar band), as well as Ryan Bingham (who stars in the show as a major character), but along with Tyler Childers, Sturgill Simpson, Colter Wall, Turnpike Troubadours and more, I honestly don’t think I could draw it up any better.
With Season 5 presumably around the corner, they’ll get a whole new opportunity to showcase even more great country music.
Taylor Sheridan and music supervisor Andrea von Foerster do a phenomenal job (Taylor’s movie Those Who Wish Me Deadalso featured artists like Whiskey Myers, Turnpike, Johnny Cash, and Chris Stapleton), but I got some ideas of my own.
And while I hope to hear some more Whiskey Myers, Turnpike and Ryan Bingham in Season 5, here’s 10 new (as in not previously featured) artists I hope I can add to our killer Yellowstone: The Soundtrack Playlist
In no particular order…
Charles Wesley Godwin
Mike & The Moonpies
Joshua Ray Walker
