Country star Lainey Wilson performance on the Season 4 finale of “Yellowstone” is a must-see for fans. Watch the clip now!

Lainey Wilson made a special appearance during the season finale “Yellowstone” last night. That’s right, the country songstress taped a performance of “Workin’ Overtime,” which aired during a commercial break. The exclusive performance presented by Frito’s was a dream come true for Wilson.

In addition to the song shown on-air, Wilson also filmed a live performance of her hit “Things A Man Oughta Know.” The song is on the “Yellowstone” soundtrack and is available to watch on the show’s Instagram page.

Her Love Of ‘Yellowstone’

Wearing a beautiful all-white ensemble, Wilson strums her acoustic guitar and sings with confidence. Backed by two players in her band, the performance is sweet and simple. In an interview, Wilson shares with fans why the moment is so meaningful.

“I grew up around a lot of cowboys. My daddy’s a cowboy and I watched season 1 of Yellowstone and I freaked out,” she begins. “I felt like I was seriously watching my family on TV because I truly just felt this connection right away to the show. First of all, it’s very rare when you see people who just love a show as much as they love Yellowstone. But also the music that goes along with it. So many people just love the soundtrack to Yellowstone. So, when I got the call that I was going to have a song on Yellowstone, I freaked out. I was just so dang excited. It’s been a huge blessing for me and this really is introducing my music to a whole different audience.”

Lainey Wilson’s Latest Album

Wilson’s latest record, “Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’,” was released in February 2021 via Broken Bow Records. The Louisiana native wanted the project to sound like a breath of fresh air, while still leaning into her classic country influences.

“The words that kept coming to my mind were ‘fresh’ and ‘familiar,'” she says to Rolling Stone. “I wanted it to have that throwback sound, but I wanted it to feel new too. I like to call it ‘bell-bottom country.’ It’s finding that thing that makes you unique, and leaning into it. It could be your story, your sound, where you’re from, how you’re raised, how you dress. I kept thinking about those words, ‘bell-bottom country’…how can we do this? I definitely wanted a bit of Bobbie Gentry vibe, but also the pureness of Lee Ann Womack but also the sassiness of Dolly Parton. I wanted it to feel timeless and classic and, honestly, a little not too perfect.”

Us Outsiders are excited to hear more music from the rising star.
