Appear On Acclaimed Series ‘Yellowstone’
Three Songs Featured
Austin, Texas-based band Shane Smith & The Saints performed live on the Season 5 opening episode of Paramount’s acclaimed series Yellowstone on November 13th, in which three of their songs were featured.
The celebrated quintet was the featured entertainment during a scene that took place at a party thrown for the main character, John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner). The band performed their song “Dance the Night Away” (off their 2013 debut album Coast) and their new single “Fire in the Ocean,” which was recently released via Thirty Tigers/Geronimo West on October 14th.

The group’s 2013 track “Alex” (off Coast) was also featured during a scene in same episode. Smith and company have been big fans of Yellowstone since it began and were excited when their song “All I See Is You” was chosen to be used in two episodes during Season 4. Needless to say, they were overjoyed to be asked to actually appear on the show. “We’ve worked so hard for such a long time without opportunities like this, so we’re just beyond grateful,” Smith says. “It’s been a lot to take in.”

A native of Terrell, Texas, Shane Smith made music a full-time pursuit after moving to Austin. A passionate musician and songwriter, Shane soon connected with Bennett Brown, along with other musicians many of whom now make up The Saints. That group includes Bennett on fiddle, Dustin Schaefer on lead guitar, Chase Satterwhite on bass, and Zach Stover on drums.
With a reputation as a high-energy live act with stunning four-part harmonies, Smith follows in the footsteps of such Lone Star songsmiths as Chris Stapleton, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Hayes Carll, and Ryan Bingham. Their first album, Coast, was released in 2013, and two years later came Geronimo, followed by Hail Mary in 2019.
