Country music stars are renowned for their fervent dedication to the genre and the tales it conveys. Nonetheless, a select few have demonstrated a profound fascination with the artistic endeavors of Yellowstone by Taylor Sheridan, who is the writer and director of Yellowstone.
Yellowstone by Taylor Sheridan has captured the attention of many country music stars, who have become vocal fans of his projects.
From Carrie Underwood to Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and Chris Lane, these musicians have expressed their admiration for Sheridan’s work in various ways, including naming children after characters and incorporating “Yellowstone vibes” into their music videos.
Carrie Underwood’s Love for Yellowstone by Taylor Sheridan
Carrie Underwood rose to fame after winning American Idol Season 4. In addition to her success as a singer, Underwood is also a vocal fan of Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone. The 39-year-old singer has previously tweeted her reactions to new episodes of the series.
At the 2022 ACM Awards in Las Vegas, Underwood was seen posing with Yellowstone star Kelsey Asbille, and the pair appeared to be having a heartfelt chat during the event.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in ‘1883’
Perhaps the most obvious country music stars who are fans of Taylor Sheridan’s work are Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The couple starred as James and Margaret Dutton in the Yellowstone prequel 1883.
However, McGraw and Hill were fans of Taylor Sheridan’s work before being cast in the Paramount+ series. In 2017, McGraw and Hill sat down to watch the murder-mystery film Wind River. “We were like, ‘Who the hell wrote and directed this? This is so good,'” Hill said while speaking with Parade. Taylor Sheridan was the answer. McGraw also spoke about how Yellowstone captured his attention.
“He expressed his admiration for the show’s blend of Game of Thrones’ epic fantasy and The Godfather’s crime drama,” he recounted to Parade. McGraw went as far as organizing an exclusive screening of multiple episodes of the Yellowstone series for himself and his acquaintances.
Chris Lane’s Dedication to Yellowstone
Chris Lane may be the most devoted fan of Yellowstone on this list. On June 8, 2021, Lane and his wife Lauren Bushnell welcomed their first child, Dutton Walker Lane, into the world. “You can take one guess where we got that from, is from the TV show Yellowstone,” Lane told the media in April.
“We are immensely fond of the name,” he added. “Although it may be somewhat unconventional, I find it rather fascinating.”
Jason Aldean’s “Yellowstone Vibe”
In January 2022, Jason Aldean released his single “Trouble with a Heartbreak,” which he described as having a “Yellowstone vibe” in the music video.
