‘Yellowstone’ used a song from a completely different movie and I was sobbing?!

Kevin Costner as John Dutton at Yellowstone

yellowstone is that show that your parents probably told you was good but you ignored it until suddenly it’s five seasons and it’s kind of number one on TV even though you don’t know anyone else who watches it. well now you got me Someone who watches the series and is so obsessed with it that I’d like someone to talk to. At least I have the Mary Sue readers to share my thoughts with.

The series follows the Dutton family and their ranch, which occupies much of the land in Montana, and most of the show revolves around how people want the land but the family doesn’t want to give it up. And that leads to a lot of drama, deaths and Wes Bentley as Jamie Dutton, which is essentially a Ward Meachum or a Kendall Roy but if they were raised on a ranch. Point is: I love him.

Created by Taylor Sheridan (who brought his hell or flood friend Gil Birmingham on the show), the series has an all-star cast and ties to a lot of other popular media — but there’s one specific moment that’ll stick with me for a long time. And it makes me wish Jeff Bridges would show up yellowstone Sometime.

I slowly fought my way through yellowstone and am now on season 3 and there was a song on the show – thanks to Ryan Bingham’s inclusion on the hit series – that made me gasp and cry throughout my watch. Bingham played Walker on the series, and in the season 2 finale, as John Dutton (Kevin Costner) cries, we begin to hear the chords of Bingham’s song “The Weary Kind,” which he performed with T-Bone Burnett for One of Me has written favorite movies of all time, crazy heart.

This is not a place for tired people

crazy heart Bridges plays former country music star Bad Blake, and the film gave us some incredible performances (including Bridges’s, which earned him the Academy Award for Best Actor). But it also gave us original songs for the country stars in the film to sing. So, along with Bridges, we got Colin Farrell as a country star. My point is: movie slaps.

But “The Weary Kind” in particular has an incredibly special place in my heart. To get personal here crazy heart and Bad Blake reminded me a lot of my dad (partly because my dad looked like Jeff Bridges) and when that movie came out it was a lot for me to see. I got my dad to watch it too. Now that my father has passed, it’s a bit difficult for me to think about Jeff Bridges and his work because my father immediately comes to mind.

While watching a show about cowboys with one of my father’s favorite actors (Costner), I was shocked to hear the song I kept listening to in 2010:

Why it works yellowstone

John Dutton talks about his son

There’s an odd subset of Western that’s all about cowboys and their repressed emotions, and that’s kind of my sweet spot in the world. I love it when cowboys are sad. That is, why hell or flood is one of my favorite films. Sheridan brought the same sentiment into it yellowstone with characters like Kayce from Luke Grimes and Jamie from Bentley, but most importantly how John Dutton works as a character. His whole life is this ranch, but he’s slowly disappearing and becoming someone they don’t need anymore.

“The Weary Kind” comes at a point in the series where John’s actions almost killed his grandson Tate and he ends up sobbing on his porch. He doesn’t even care that his daughter Beth (Kelly Reilly) is in front of him. He’s emotional and he’s breaking down, and I find that yellowstone be the most interesting.
