Tim McGraw Drops Epic Recap Video from Minnesota State Fair Performance

by Joe Rutland

Country music and “Yellowstone” spin-off star Tim McGraw loved performing for a big crowd at the Minnesota State Fair.

So much so that McGraw decided to share some video highlights from that show on Thursday.

When you look at Tim McGraw, then you might notice something a little different. He’s grown a goatee and whether it is for his TV role or not, we don’t know, Outsiders. But his look doesn’t keep him from performing at his usual high level.

Take a look at this minute-long clip posted on McGraw’s Twitter account.

As we mentioned, McGraw is one of the stars of a “Yellowstone” spin-off called “1883” that will premiere this fall.

Who are his co-stars? Both are familiar names and Tim McGraw sees one on a daily basis. Wife and country music singer Faith Hill joins McGraw as they will play James Dutton and his wife Margaret circa 1883. The show, which will air on Paramount+, offers viewers a look back at the Duttons heading toward the West with some help.

That other co-star happens to be the veteran actor Sam Elliott. He plays a guide that helps the Duttons move through the Great Plains and onto their new land.

“It all starts with the writing, and Taylor Sheridan is a brilliant writer,” Elliott said. “I think the Western genre speaks clearly to both of us.” 

“1883” is just another show from “Yellowstone” executive producer Taylor Sheridan. Having McGraw, Hill, and Elliott on board is definitely a casting coup.

Meanwhile, Tim McGraw continued performing on Wednesday night before moving along to his next gig. Outsiders that love his music will wait patiently for him to perform nearby or in their hometowns.

Tim McGraw Gears Up For ‘1883’ Role With Some Snappy Gun Draw Work

When he’s not on stage, McGraw already has some work that he’s done and will do for “1883.”

Earlier in August, he posted two photos on his Twitter account that show what looks like a script binder. McGraw also showed off a pair of well-worn jeans that carry marks on them from working on his gun-drawing skills.

He also expressed a lot of love for having a role in the “Yellowstone” spin-off.

“The Duttons are tremendous characters and it’s so thrilling to be able to bring them to life,” Tim McGraw said in a statement on his casting. “As a kid growing up riding horses, you think about dream jobs like this and I am just so excited to work with this amazing cast and crew.”

101 Studios CEO David Glasser said that “1883” creator Sheridan “has proven time and time again his powerful ability to tell riveting stories that are rich with passion, drama, and adventure and entertain audiences everywhere.”
