In addition to the thrilling storyline and captivating characters, Paramount Network’s hit TV series Yellowstone is also known for its compelling musical soundtrack. Viewers have made note of the catalog of music which features music from country artists such as Zach Bryan, Lainey Wilson, Hailey Whitters, Brent Cobb, Midland, and more. 

Fans will now have the chance to hear many of these songs in one place because Yellowstone has partnered with Spotify to take over the Indigo playlist, which was curated by Yellowstone Music Supervisor Andrea von Foerster.

“It’s a thrill working with Taylor Sheridan to make music a part of the DNA of Yellowstone. We’re huge music fans and it’s an honor to shine a light on indie artists we love,” Foerster shared exclusively. “Watching Red Dirt country move into the mainstream has been exceptionally cool and we’re happy to be a part of that movement. We’re always looking for new talent to accompany our characters and storylines in the Taylorverse.”

 “Collaborating with Andrea von Foerster for the Indigo playlist takeover allowed us to give listeners a deeper look into the musical inspiration behind the show,” Editor, Folk & Acoustic Programming Carla Turi added. “Spotify is dedicated to offering our listeners unique experiences to grow their connection to music and beyond. This collaboration is one of those examples, and the response has been exactly what we hoped for. 

So while waiting for new episodes of Season 5 to drop, fans can still enjoy the themes of the popular show by listening to this collection on road trips, sitting around a campfire, and more. As of Friday (Nov. 25), the Indigo playlist flipped to highlight music that inspired the show and will continue with this format all week long. 

Several of the songs on the playlist include “When It’s My Time” (Brent Cobb), “billy” (Stephen Wilson Jr.), “Draw From My Memory” (Desure), “Life Ain’t Fair” (Midland), “The Devil Always Made Me Think Twice” (Hailey Whitters), “Hold On” (Yola), “Time of the Cottonwood Trees” (Charley Crockett), and more. 

In addition to the inclusion of her music, Lainey Wilson also had the chance to play a role in the TV show. During the season 5 premiere, which aired on Sunday, November 13, Wilson made her acting debut as a musician named Abby. She previously shared that this role was created specifically for her by Yellowstone co-creator, Taylor Sheridan. 

“It’s like a totally different world,” she told Country Now. “I was definitely, at first, like a fish out of water, but everybody made me feel so at home welcome and good. I didn’t really know what to expect and I don’t think they knew what to expect either, but we all ended up leaving there being great friends.”

“This is a huge opportunity from God. I mean, I believe that this is just gonna be another way for me to be able to share more of my music with the world,” Wilson added.

The “Heart Like a Truck” singer recently debuted her original song, “Smell Like Smoke” during an episode, which has also been included on her latest album, Bell Bottom Country

New episodes of Yellowstone are broadcast weekly on the Paramount Network. All past episodes can also be streamed on Peacock.
