Wilson then explained how she landed a co-starring role on the show.
“Taylor Sheridan, the writer and producer of the show called me back in February and said, ‘I’m creating a character just for you.’ And I’m like, ‘thank you, God and thank you, Taylor Sheridan.’ It’s a blessing,” Wilson exclaimed of the opportunity. Wilson will play a musician named Abby on Yellowstone and can “play [her] songs” during the appearance, she also shared, saying it was the “perfect” role for her.
Wilson also opened up about his role on the show with The tennessian ahead of her performance at this year’s CMA Fest on June 11.
