‘Yellowstone’ TV: How Country Music Plays a Major Role in the Paramount Series

Establishing a tone for Yellowstone is something showrunner Taylor Sheridan nails from the opening credits. In addition to the poignant dialogue from the main characters and gorgeous western scenery, one instrument that the creative team behind the Paramount Network series implements to draw in audiences is country music.

Yellowstone‘s soundtrack is full of country music from a wide range of artists. However, it isn’t the Top 40 Country you might hear on the radio. The music in the series has a particular edge to it that provides a raw grit that perfectly compliments the overarching feel of the show and the untamed wild of the Dutton’s Montana ranch.

One of the major forces behind bringing the gritty country sound to the show is Ryan Bingham, who plays Walker on the series.
