Yellowstone's Luke Grimes Isn't The Only Musician On Set

"Yellowstone" is a set filled with multi-talented performers. Showrunner and creator Taylor Sheridan is a triple threat with acting, directing, and writing under his belt. The "Sicario" writer started as an actor and since creating the neo-western for Paramount, has filled his series with creatives just as talented as he is. Tiresome combative siblings, Beth (Kelly Reilly) and Jamie (Wes Bentley), are portrayed by class talents. Reilly has paid her dues in English productions while Bentley is a familiar face due to his "American Beauty" fame. But not to be outdone, the youngest sibling, Kayce (Luke Grimes), also has some additional talent under his belt. After appearing in HBO's torrid vampire romance, "True Blood," Grimes has also explored his passion for music.

"I was writing some stuff, singing it into my iPhone, and sent it to a few friends," Grimes told The New York Post. "One thing led to another, and I get a phone call from this great music manager, and he says, 'Do you really want to try this?' And I said, 'Well, why wouldn't I?', not really thinking much of it. Now here I am signed with Universal Nashville." And though the actor has reason to celebrate his newfound success, he has no problem with sharing the musical limelight on "Yellowstone."

Kevin Costner uses music to put everyone at ease

Music is a large part of the "Yellowstone" community. Though Luke Grimes doesn't share his talents in his capacity as Kayce Dutton, the Taylor Sheridan series does pay homage to country music. Season 5 features the acting stylings of Lainey Wilson, who is a real-life country music artist. She portrays touring musician, Abby, who brings a sense of flair to the Yellowstone ranch. But for those who don't know, Kevin Costner isn't just practiced at directing Oscar-winning films. According to Forbes, Costner has a band called Kevin Costner & Modern West who have been playing for the better part of two decades. Costner doesn't just keep his performances to the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. He also holds court in a more intimate setting on the "Yellowstone" set.

Grimes recalled to The New York Post that his costar: "always wants you to come hang out at his trailer down by this creek. He's got a fire pit, and he's a musician, so he's always got a guitar around and won't hesitate to play you a song. He does a really good job of taking the pressure off what a huge icon he is." And for those interested in hearing what some of these private music sessions may sound like, you can listen to "Tales From Yellowstone," Kevin Costner & Modern West's album inspired by the series.
