Montana’s Yellowstone Country has always had a variety of live music, but these days, the talent, frequency, and venues of musicians gracing our area are off the charts- (pun intended.) Amidst mountain backdrops, next to gorgeous rivers, and inside state-of-the-art music venues, you’ll find some of the best sounds in the country. National headlines, regional favorites, and up-and-coming names are taking the stage from West Yellowstone to Red Lodge.
