Kevin stars in the television show, Yellowstone. The 3rd season Premieres this Sunday evening on the Paramount Network. “Everybody wants what he has”Kevin says of his leading character, “let’s see where the writing takes us.”

Kevin's band Kevin Costner and Modern West is a country rock band and he has released a new record called Tales from Yellowstone.

Kevin tells Brad it's a concept album for the TV series and explains the intimacy of the songs, grabbing inspiration from his late father for the song “last time” and the last time they went hunting together.

Kevin shares a great story about hitting his first home run ever while filming Bull Durham. “I was an undersized kid for my age” Kevin says to why he didn’t hit one out of the yard in his early days.

But during the filming of Bull Durham he finally hit one out of the park against minor leaguers trying out for a spot in the movie, “after the first two swings I said to myself what are you worried about, you have a job” and he hit one out!

“It was just like one of those funny moments when you say, wow.”
