Singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham never really set out to be a musician. He grew up in New Mexico and Texas, riding bulls on the local rodeo circuit. His mother bought him a guitar when he was 16 years old, and a neighbor taught him a mariachi tune. When he grew tired of playing the only song he knew, Bingham began penning his own music, discovering the writing process to be a therapeutic coping mechanism for dealing with the tumultuousness of his upbringing. He set out on his own, shuffling from town to town. His first performances were informal affairs in the backseats of cars with friends on the way to rodeos, where he competed professionally on the weekends. Before he knew it, Bingham had more gigs playing guitar than riding bulls.
After making his recording debut on Lost Highway Records (Universal Music Group) and touring hard across the U.S. in support of his first couple of albums, Bingham was actually in the back of a van in North Dakota when he wrote "The Weary Kind," which became the centerpiece of the 2010 film "Crazy Heart'" starring Jeff Bridges. It earned Bingham an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Grammy. The film also marked Bingham’s acting debut in a small part opposite Bridges. Bingham went on to play the leading man in the feature film "A Country Called Home" and later appeared opposite Christian Bale as Sgt. Paul Malloy in the movie "Hostiles." All Bingham’s film and TV projects have featured his original music, including Season 1 of "Yellowstone," on which he performed, in character, his song "Wolves" from the album "American Love Song."
Born and raised in Montana, actor Forrie J. Smith has appeared in over 100 different productions since first stepping into the spotlight over 20 years ago. Most notably, he has worked on "Rambo III," "2 Guns" and Oscar-nominee Taylor Sheridan's "Hell or High Water."
Among Smith's other television and film credits as an actor and/or stuntman are "Midnight, Texas," "The Lazarus Man" and "Lucky Luke." Due to his on-camera wrangling expertise, his roles almost exclusively revolve around working with livestock, and he considers the ability to do both dialogue and stunts in a single shot to be his forte. Between projects, he has competed and won in rodeos all over the North American continent and Australia.
Now starring as Lloyd on Paramount Network's "Yellowstone," Smith credits his childhood on the road in the rodeo for instilling in him the values of the horse culture.
Fresh off pivotal roles in both "Soldado," opposite Benicio Del Toro/Josh Brolin, and the critically acclaimed "Wind River," opposite Jeremy Renner/Elizabeth Olsen, Ian Bohen reteams with director and Oscar-nominated writer Taylor Sheridan on Paramount Network's "Yellowstone" starring Kevin Costner.
