Now in its 5th season, few need to be told just how important the soundtrack is to the blockbuster series Yellowstone, and few need to be told just how important getting a song on the soundtrack is to the artists and bands that are featured. Yellowstone has quite literally made careers for certain artists, sent other careers into the stratosphere, and been one of the biggest driving forces behind the recent success of independent artists in country music.
Yellowstone Season 5 promises to be no different, and may even be more instrumental in making careers than previous ones. With fast-rising country star Lainey Wilson joining the cast, and Shane Smith and the Saints being featured in a scene, there are already important music tie-ins to look forward to, not to mention the scores of artists whose music will make it into pivotal moments.
All the more reason to follow along with who and what is being featured in certain Yellowstone episodes. Below you can find a running tab of who and what is featured, and when. It will be updated weekly as new Yellowstone episodes air.
“Not a lot moves the needle these days. But this show moves the needle,” Hayes Carll said during a discussion and performance panel with Yellowstone‘s music Supervisor Andrea von Foerster earlier this year. Lainey Wilson added, “This is going to change my life. So I appreciate it.”
