Lainey Wilson appeared during the Season 4 finale of Paramount Network’s Yellowstone for a special acoustic performance of three songs. Airing during the commercial breaks from a rustic space, Wilson and her band kicked off her performance with 2018’s “Workin’ Overtime,” which has been featured on the show’s soundtrack. Prior to her first performance, Wilson talked about the importance of country music throughout her life and shared the story of moving to Nashville in a camper trailer.
For her second song, Wilson performed “Rolling Stone” from her debut album, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’. The Louisiana-born singer also talked about her love for Yellowstone and the connection she feels to the show.
“I grew up around a lot of cowboys, my daddy’s a cowboy, and I watched Season 1 of Yellowstone and freaked out,” Wilson said. “I felt like I was seriously watching my family on TV because I truly just felt this connection right away to this show.”
Wilson chatted more about her love for country music before closing the performance with her No. 1 single, “Things A Man Oughta Know.”
Wilson is one of the many country artists who have a relationship with the star-studded, Western-themed television show. The show has featured Wilson’s music since Season 3 with “Small Town Girl” and “Straight Up Sideways” also making appearances. Other artists who have had music featured on the show include Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Cody Johnson, Colter Wall, and many more. The soundtracks are arranged by the show’s music director, Andrea von Foerster.
