Kevin Costner Just Announced Amazing News For Yellowstone Fans

It's going to be a few more months before "Yellowstone” returns for its highly anticipated fourth season. The next chapter of Paramount Network's hit neo-Western family drama will premiere later in 2021 — November, according to Deadline, which the network has not confirmed. In the meantime, "Yellowstone" fans are getting something special to tide them over, courtesy of series star Kevin Costner.

In addition to being an Academy Award-winning actor and filmmaker, Costner is a musician. He's the leader of the country rock band Kevin Costner & Modern West, which has four albums available to stream on Spotify, including its first two, "Untold Truths" and "Turn It On." Eventually, though, Costner turned the band's focus to original music inspired by his starring roles. He accompanied his Emmy-winning limited series "Hatfields & McCoys" with an album called "Famous for Killing Each Other: Music from and Inspired by Hatfields & McCoys," which consists of pieces the band composed for the score, as well as songs that draw lyrical inspiration from the story of the famous feuding families.

Last year, the band released an album entitled "Tales from Yellowstone," which contains songs inspired by the series. The lyrics are written from the perspective of Costner's character John Dutton. "Won't Stop Loving You," for example, is based on Dutton's feelings for his beloved late wife. A few of the songs appeared in Season 3. And soon, "Yellowstone" fans will have the chance to hear them in person.

Songs in the key of Yellowstone

The band couldn't tour last year while live music was mostly shut down due to the pandemic, but they're hitting the road this year and playing "Tales from Yellowstone," Costner announced in a recent Instagram post.

The band will be doing a short tour in late August and early September that will take them entirely through the South and Midwest. On August 24, they kick off their tour at the famous Heritage Hall in Ardmore, OK, and continue their journey through Texas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Minnesota, before concluding the run in Decatur, IL at the Lakeshore Amphitheater. Tickets for some of the shows are available via Bandsintown, so go ahead and get 'em while their hot.

In an Instagram video marking the release of "Tales from Yellowstone" last year, Costner described the album as "written with 'Yellowstone' on my shoulder" and "about all the feelings I had while making the show." 

Will a few shows be enough to tide fans over until November?
