Rip is going back in time.
With the new season of Yellowstone just a week away, the cast of the show has been making the media rounds revealing their expectations for the new season, their reactions to the show’s massive growth over the past two seasons, and more.
Always careful not to share too much, Cole Hauser (who plays the Dutton Ranch foreman, Rip Wheeler), couldn’t help but reveal a new look on his face… a goatee.
And why? For a new role in Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone universe.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Cole will be taking on a new role in the 1883 follow-up series, 1883: The Bass Reeves Story.
“I’m switching it up on ya… this is for a role that I did in 1883.”
When asked if he could elaborate further, he graciously replied:
The six-part series will star David Oyelowo as Reeves, a legendary lawman of the wild west, who’s known as one of the greatest frontier heroes in American history, and is believed to be the inspiration behind The Lone Ranger.
Reeves worked as a federal peace officer in the Indian Territory during the post-reconstruction era, capturing more than 3,000 of the most dangerous criminals of that time period, without ever being wounded.
And according to Deadline, Taylor Sheridan is going to direct the first two episodes of the limited-series.
And Oyelowo admits that he had to think about it when Taylor asked if he could direct the first two episodes:
“I opened the text and it said, ‘I love the script. I hope you don’t mind if I direct it, sir?’ I was like, ‘let me think about it.’
He did call me ‘sir’, that’s a Southern thing. I think he was just being polite. He did ask, which I appreciated. The reality is that he is one of the best storytellers on the planet.
My whole thing is that we’ve got to tell a story worthy of that history, but worthy of a global audience and he’s one of those rare guys, and I’ve worked with a few of them, and he’s one of those rare ones who can really do that. It’s a big deal.”
In the mean time, Taylor Sheridan is gearing up for the release of Yellowstone Season 5 on November 13th, on Paramount Network, with 1923 set for December 18th.
Yellowstone: The Complete Soundtrack
We’re just two weeks away from the premiere of Yellowstone: Season 5…
Hold on to your asses.
The Paramount Network series is pretty much the hottest thing on television right now, and aside from the exceptional cast, the stunning mountain views, and the riveting storyline… the music in the series is downright phenomenal.
We’re talking Tyler Childers, Cody Jinks, Whiskey Myers, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Colter Wall, Whitey Morgan, Blackberry Smoke and a ton more.
The show also features a ton of Ryan Bingham’s music, who stars in the show as Walker, a drifting, ex-con ranch hand on the Dutton’s Yellowstone Ranch.
Season 5 will also introduce us to a new character played by country music star Lainey Wilson, and Lainey says she’s pretty much just playing herself. I’m sure we can expect more of her tunes on the Season 5 soundtrack.
And yeah, we all want to see what happens to the John, Beth, Kayce and the rest of the Dutton family, how John runs the state of Montana as the new Governor, what happens to Kayce & Monica’s relationship, can Jamie finally earn the respect of his family and more, but I also can’t WAIT to see what artists make the Season 5 soundtrack.
So, if you’re as stoked as I am for the music of Season 5, you MUST be following our Yellowstone: The Soundtrack playlist, available on Spotify and Apple Music.
Featuring EVERY SINGLE SONG from the series, we make sure we update it in real time, so every Sunday night, all the new stuff is right there.
It’s the most-followed Yellowstone playlist out there, and no joke… it might just be the best playlist on planet Earth.

Ranking The Top 5 Songs From Every Season
Oh, we’re doing it people…
With the highly-anticipated Yellowstone Season 5 on the way, and a TON of great country music to look forward to, we’re going to try and tackle the impossible task of ranking the best songs from every season.
Some have argued that this past season wasn’t quite as good as the others, and many also didn’t particularly think the Season 4 finale was as exciting as the previous ones. And while that’s debatable, there’s no doubt in my mind that the music from the last season was just as good as ever.
And something tells me that Season 5 is going to be even better. Of course, Lainey Wilson will starring in this upcoming season so we’re sure to hear some new tunes from her.
Expertly curated by series creator Taylor Sheridan, as well as music supervisor Andrea von Foerster, Yellowstone unquestionably has the greatest soundtrack in the history of television.
In Season 4, we saw the likes of Shane Smith & the Saints, Colter Wall, Blackberry Smoke, Hailey Whitters, Ryan Bingham, John Prine, Willie Nelson, Cody Johnson, Jason Isbell, and more.
So without further ado, let’s count it down.
From the pilot episode, all the way up to the Season 4 finale, the soundtrack of Paramount Network’s Yellowstone has been absolutely incredible. The show itself is great too, but the soundtrack is really what ties it all together for me.
The music of Whiskey Myers is featured prominently throughout the series, as well as Ryan Bingham (who stars in the show), 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.
So that being said, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from each season.
