Country music fans who tune in to the Season 4 finale of Yellowstone on Sunday evening (Jan. 2) will see a familiar face during a commercial break as Lainey Wilson will appear to sing a song that is featured on the show’s soundtrack.

In support of the much-anticipated finale, Wilson taped a performance of “Workin’ Overtime,” to air during a commercial break.

Additionally, the rising star filmed performances of “Rolling Stone” and her chart-topping debut single, “Things A Man Oughta Know,” as part of an exclusive Yellowstone soundtrack series on social media.

This isn’t the first time Wilson’s music has appeared on the Yellowstone soundtrack. 

In 2020, her songs “Small Town, Girl” and “Straight Up Sideways” were featured in Season 3 of the popular Paramount Network series.

Wilson is a big fan of the show and admits having her songs included on the soundtrack is a dream come true.

“I watched Season one of Yellowstone, I felt just a connection right away to this show. So many people love the music that goes along with it,” Wilson shared. ”So, when I got the call that I was gonna have a song on Yellowstone, I freaked out. I was just so dang excited. It’s been a huge blessing for me, and this really is introducing my music to a whole different audience.” 

Wilson’s music was discovered by Andrea von Foerster, Yellowstone’s Music Supervisor, who visited Nashville shortly after Season 1 to scout out new artists to include on the soundtrack. 

“We don’t get to use a ton of female artists because of the masculine landscape that we have, but when we do, we like to have bold women. So she fits the bill. She’s just amazing,” Andrea von Foerster shared with Music Row.

The Louisiana native previously gushed over Yellowstone creator, Taylor Sheridan, and his support of new artists.

“I can’t say enough about Taylor Sheridan, his work, and the way he supports and champions music alongside his projects. What he’s created with the show Yellowstone is something special,” Wilson previously shared. “I grew up in the rodeo world and my Daddy was a horse trader alongside being a farmer. My parents put me on a horse before I could walk. So when I sit down to watch this show, it reminds me so much of my childhood and the cowboy that raised me. The show is full of characters who stand up for what they believe in and strive for good character – two things I think a man surely oughta know.”

Other artists that have been featured on the Yellowstone soundtrack include Honey County, Cody Johnson, Ryan Bingham, Jason Isbell, Tim McGraw, Jackson Dean, The Panhandlers, Zach Bryan and more.
