During her chat with American Songwriter, Wilson said she is ready to get back to work on Yellowstone. She’s also said that she’s reasonably certain that her touring schedule won’t get in the way of production.

“A couple of years ago when we were filming, my schedule was crazier than it is now,” Wilson recalled. “We were probably playing a hundred and sixty-something shows. This year, we’re not playing as many shows,” she explained. “I think we’ll be able to figure it out.” Wilson added that the show’s creator, Taylor Sheridan, is good about working around her touring schedule during production.

Then, the conversation turned to Luke Grimes’ self-titled album and the possibility of the two Yellowstone co-stars and country singers collaborating in the future. When asked if a musical collaboration with Grimes was possible, she said, “I hope so. I’m a big fan and I think he’s just cool.”

About the longtime actor crossing over into the country music world, Wilson said, “He’s really, really good and really talented. I’m glad to see him stepping into that creative side.”
