Tim McGraw Makes ‘Yellowstone’ Debut In First ‘1883’ Trailer… And It Looks Insanely Good

Not gonna lie, I had my reservations about Tim McGraw starring in a Taylor Sheridan project, especially part of the Yellowstone family.

And not just starring, Tim McGraw is playing the lead.

But lo and behold, he might just fit the bill.

During tonight’s Yellowstone Season 4 premiere, we finally got out first look at 1883, the origin story of Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone.

Starring Sam Elliott and country music’s own power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, 1883 is the story of how the Duttons came to settle in Montana, making their way from Texas across the treacherous Great Plains to settle on the modern day Dutton Ranch property.

Tim and Faith are set to play James and Margaret Dutton, the patriarch and matriarch of the Dutton family, while Elliott will take on the role of Shea Brennan, the hardnosed cowboy tasked with leading the expedition.

And it looks GOOD.

1883 is streaming December 19th exclusively on Paramount+.

According to a new interview with Entertainment WeeklySam Elliott’s character kicks off the show in the wake of tragedy:

“It haunts him throughout, along with the responsibility of moving these emigrants north.”

And while it’s technically a prequel for Yellowstone, Elliott says it pulls its own weight.

They just pump so much life into this.

You can call this a spin-off or a prequel to ‘Yellowstone’ or whatever you want, but for my money, it stands on its own.”
