Sylvester Stallone has resumed his role as the on-screen tough guy of choice in the new Paramount+ series, Tulsa King.
Although Stallone has been a Hollywood stalwart for many years now, Tulsa King marks the first time he's taken the lead in a TV drama.
A number of songs from country music's biggest names have featured in the series, with the likes of Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Midland and Charley Crockett all appearing on the Tulsa King soundtrack. Tracks by Lainey Wilson, Ashland Craft, Brothers Osborne and Merle Haggard also caught the eye of the show's music curators.
More recently, Charles Wesley Godwin's gritty ballad, ‘Coal Country’ was featured in Episode 8, Adobe Walls.
In the explosive finale, Happy Trails, which aired on January 8, one of the show's stars, Garrett Hedlund, took to the bar's stage to perform eye-catching covers of The Allman Brothers’ ‘Ramblin’ Man’ and Three Dog Night's ‘Never Been To Spain’.
Co-created by Yellowstone's Taylor Sheridan, Tulsa King follows the resurgence of former New York mafia boss, Dwight, who emerges back onto the scene after concluding a 25 year stint in prison.
Tasked with assembling a brand new crew in the relatively unblemished territory of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Dwight reluctantly touches down in the Sooner State.
Much like Taylor Sheridan's other hit Paramount+ series, Yellowstone, an array of mood-setting country anthems have been tightly interwoven into the fabric of Tulsa King.
With the show having been renewed for a second season in November, Tulsa King will undoubtedly introduce plenty more country favourites onto its star-studded soundtrack.
