Lainey Wilson: Yellowstone’s Newest Addition


When the news came that Lainey Wilson would be joining the cast of Yellowstone, fans about lost their minds. The country music singer has had her music featured on the series multiple times and is a huge fan of the show. It just makes sense to have her become part of the cast!

Taylor Sheridan developed the role of “Abby” just for Lainey. Yes, it’s a country music singer, but we’re sure we’ll get more out of the character than just a few pretty songs this season!

When an actor or actress joins a new cast, it can be intimidating. Especially when one of those actresses is Kelly Reilly and her character is Beth freakin’ Dutton. Not really a meeting a lot of folks would be dying to have. However, it helps that Reilly is nothing like her on-screen identity.

“She’s actually one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my entire life,” the singer said in an interview with Taste of Country. “Which was shocking, because [Beth is] a tough mama jama. She will cut you.”

Of course, with “Abby” joining the show, it could give Beth a chance to make a new friend… right?

“She [Kelly Reilly] told me, ‘I was hoping you’d be my first friend on the show,’” Wilson went on to say.

Lainey is going to be a great addition to the show! Her music has already added so much to it with her music. And if she becomes Beth’s friend, that would be a standout storyline for sure.

Sometimes, things just progress over time. Relationships and roles change gradually. For Lainey Wilson, it seems like things went pretty quickly. First, she was just a fan of the show. Then her music was played on it. Now, she’s got herself a role in the series!

She explained how she got her role recently. “They’ve put three of my songs in a show so far. They’ve just been good to me. They were a fan of my music and they did that for me. Then Taylor Sheridan, the writer and producer, reached out to me in February. I’ve become friends with him over the last few years. He called and said, ‘I want to create a character specifically for you. What you say about it?’ I said, ‘You sure you want to do that?’”

Besides the prospect of potentially making a friend, Beth Dutton has a lot in store in Season 5! Check out what Kelly Reilly had to say about what’s to come.
