Lainey Wilson Shares Off-Set ‘Yellowstone’ Season 5 Photo + Country Stars Lose It [Picture]
Wilson posted a picture to her Instagram on Tuesday (July 19), depicting her sitting in a folding chair with the Yellowstone logo emblazoned across the back of it. She's looking over her shoulder and smiling into the camera in the photo, and though it doesn't look like it's from the set of Season 5, which is currently filming, it looks like she could be in a hotel room or office on location.
Carly Pearce, Stephanie Quayle, Callista Clark, Jamie O'Neal, Brittney Spencer, Jon Langston, RaeLynn, Ashley Cooke and more country artists were among those who reacted with excitement to the photo, along with several country media outlets.

"We are in the process of it right now," Wilson stated. "It's going great, and I'm surprising myself."
Wilson's music has been featured on the hit Paramount Network show multiple times previously, and she told ET that series co-creator and writer Taylor Sheridan called her in February of 2022 and said he wanted to write a part specifically for her for Yellowstone Season 5.
"I said, 'You sure you wanna do that?'" she related with a laugh. "He told me, 'Lainey, you can do it.'"
The "Things a Man Oughta Know" and "Never Say Never" hitmaker added that she's been taking "a few" acting lessons, and they've been going well.
"I've been acting a fool my whole life," she joked, "so this might be second nature!"
Wilson is slated to play a musician named Abby on the show, and she is one of several new additions to the cast of Yellowstone in Season 5. Kai Caster (American Horror Story) joins the show as a young cowboy named Rowdy, while Lilli Kay (Your Honor) will play Clara Brewer, a new assistant for one of the Dutton family. Dawn Olivieri, who previously appeared on the Yellowstone prequel 1883, will portray Sarah Atwood, described as "a confident, corporate shark and a new arrival to Montana."
Josh Lucas (Young John Dutton), Jacki Weaver (Caroline Warner), Kylie Rogers (Young Beth Dutton) and Kyle Red Silverstein (Young Rip Wheeler) will all return for Season 5 of Yellowstone, and the show has upped Mo Brings Plenty (Mo) and Wendy Moniz (Governor Lynelle Perry) to series regulars for the new season, as well as Jen Landon (Teeter) and Kathryn Kelly (Emily).
Season 5 of Yellowstone began filming in Montana in mid-May, and it's scheduled to premiere on Nov. 13. The entire principal cast is set to return, including Kevin Costner (John Dutton), Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton), Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton), Wes Bentley (Jamie Dutton), Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler), Kelsey Asbille (Monica Dutton), Brecken Merrill (Tate Dutton), Jefferson White (Jimmy Hurdstrom), Forrie Smith (Lloyd Pierce), Denim Richards (Colby Mayfield), Ian Bohen (Ryan), Finn Little (Carter), Ryan Bingham (Walker) and Gil Birmingham (Thomas Rainwater).
Season 5 will consist of 14 episodes that are set to air in two arcs of 7 episodes apiece. Seasons 1-4 of the hit Paramount Network show are currently available to stream via Peacock.
