EW has your first look at country music artists Darius Rucker and Lyle Lovett as they join the cast of Big Sky: Deadly Trails this Wednesday. The singers join country superstar Reba McEntire, who is currently starring as mama bear matriarch Sunny Barnes on the ABC drama. The episode, titled “Come Get Me”, continues to follow the case that has been called “Bleeding Heart Murder”. When shocking evidence surfaces, Jenny (Katheryn Winnick) and Beau (Jensen Ackles) team up with Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) to make a breakthrough in the case. Buck (Rex Linn), who is struggling with a moral dilemma, leads to cracks in Sunny’s (McEntire’s) marriage.

Lovett joins the show as Tex, an expert tracker with a quiet menace that lurks beneath his gentleman-cowboy exterior. His talent for music makes him even more dangerous.

Rucker will portray Possum, a hired gun that prefers to work late (hence the name).

As far as music is concerned, fans can expect Lovett to pick up a guitar, though the verdict is still out on Rucker. McEntire’s characters are inspired at least in part by the actors who portray them. “There’s a lot of this in Reba herself,” showrunner Elwood Reid previously told EW. “She’s a mama bear you shouldn’t cross. She has a bit of an edge and some darkness to her. But if you squint and you look through the lens of Big Sky, you can justify some of the stuff she’s going to be doing. Reba is a smiley face. You can’t help but love her, even when she does some very bad things. “

We’ll see just how nasty she can get when Big Sky airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m on ABC.
