Yellowstone creator, Taylor Sheridan was selected for the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, and his wife is loving it.
A native of Cranfills Gap, Texas, Taylor Sheridan has found success and a screenwriter and director. But he’s a true cowboy at heart. Most recently, he’s become involved in the Western performance horse industry. He started as a competitor in reining and then in cutting horse. He also owns the high-caliber reined cow horse contender, Kreyzy Horse. In addition to his work on Yellowstone, Sheridan has also created western films Wind River and Hell or High Water. So, it’s no surprise that he’s been officially inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony was held last night in Billy Bob’s Texas at the Fort Worth Stockyards.
Sheridan’s wife, Nicole Muirbrook, shared a photo of her husband giving his acceptance speech. Along with the photo, she wrote, So proud of you. What a special night.”
Taylor Sheridan Hired His Cowboy Hat Maker For Yellowstone
Like a true cowboy, Sheridan has always found ways to build up members of his community. Sheridan purchased a hat from Trent Johnson of Greeley Hat Works. Then 15 years later, while he was working on Wind River, Sheridan found Johnson’s phone number and called him up. He asked if Johnson would create hats for all the cast members in the movie. Johnson’s work was such a success that Sheridan hired him again to design all the hats for Yellowstone. During an interview, Johnson talked about how he designed John Dutton’s hats.
“For John Dutton, I ended up making five different looks, five different hats, and for each look, there were multiple hats,” said Johnson. “For his silver belly hat, I made him three and his stunt double one. So for every person, I built multiple hats for the trick is to distress them, they need to look authentic.”
Who knew that there were so many hats involved in just one scene for Yellowstone?
