Kevin Costner didn’t just want to stay on the screen, he had other ambitions to be on stage with a guitar in hand. In 2007, Costner formed the country-rock band, Kevin Costner and Modern West. The group included, along with Costner: John Coinman, Teddy Morgan, Blair Forward, Larry Cobb, Park Chisholm, Luke Bulla, Bobby Yang, and Roddy Chong.
The band signed under the Show Dog-Universal label and began touring in 2007. They have performed at the Daytona International Speedway and at the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
Joe Costner is the youngest child of Kevin and Cindy Costner. He has also had acting experience and starred alongside his sister, Lily in "The Postman."
He had a role in his dad’s film "Tin Cup," but Joe doesn’t seem to be active as an actor anymore. These days, he seems to prefer the quiet life as the son of a notable movie star.
Liam Costner, Kevin’s son with ex-girlfriend Bridget Rooney, Is the fourth child of the actor. A trust fund was set up for Liam but little is known about the twenty-something.
He, like his other siblings, seems to enjoy a quieter life. But with an actor for a father and a former model as a mother, it’s possible he may step into the spotlight someday.
A NASCAR Honor
Speaking of NASCAR, Costner was also given the honor of being named the Grand Marshal of the Nextel Cup Series Auto Club in 2007.
His connection to the American pastime went even further when, in 2008, he helped produce the NASCAR documentary (along with CMT Films), The Ride of Their Lives.
The West Is in His Heart
With the formation of his country-rock band, his ranch in Colorado, and his directorial debut in "Dances with Wolves," it's clear that Kevin Costner has a love for the West. He himself has admitted that his favorite movie genre is Westerns.
Additionally, he has a love for horse riding and did all of his own riding scenes (of course) in "Dances with Wolves." And now, you can see him in the Western drama, "Yellowstone!"
