Lainey Wilson Secures Role on Yellowstone

Reigning ACM Song of the Year winner Lainey Wilson announced she will star in the fifth season of Yellowstone. The hit show has grown in popularity since its inception, even becoming a favorite of country stars such as Chris Lane and Carrie Underwood.

Wilson will star as a character named Abby, a role the show's creator Taylor Sheridan specifically designed for the singer. “I’m such a fan of Yellowstone and Taylor (Sheridan)—this is an absolute dream, a dream I didn’t even know was on the menu. Taylor, Andrea and the entire team over there have been so good to me over the years and for Taylor to create a character aligned with who I am as an artist is just wild,” said Wilson per press release. After a jam-packed schedule during CMA Fest, it's safe to say Wilson shows no sign of slowing down.
