Country music superstar Tim McGraw is one of the headliners for the new “Yellowstone” prequel “1883” that will premiere this Sunday.
James and Margaret Dutton are the direct ancestors of John Dutton, the current owner of the Yellowstone cattle ranch. Fans of the modern western series are elated that we will get an in-depth back story on how the ranch came to be. “1883” will take us back in time to the titular year and show us how the Dutton family came to settle in Montana. We will also learn the origin of “Yellowstone” Ranch and how it came to be the powerful entity that it is today. With the premiere of “1883” not just days away, excitement for the new series is escalating by the hour.
McGraw appeared on “CBS Mornings” earlier this week to promote “1883” and continue building excitement. Playing a character from 1883 means wearing a costume that is time period correct. Apparently, some people may believe that McGraw’s modern-day wardrobe is a bit “outdated” for the times. Check out this hilarious exchange between McGraw and “CBS Mornings” co-host Gayle Perry:
Perry confesses to having “egg on her face,” thinking that McGraw was in his “1883” attire for the segment.
“These are my clothes,” he clarifies. “I don’t think they had these clothes in 1883.”
Both Perry and McGraw laugh it off before moving on to the next topic.

It’s clear in the interview that McGraw is thrilled for fans to see the work that the outstanding “1883” cast has put in.
McGraw and Hill were surprised, but welcome, additions to the show’s all-star ensemble. The country music duo has limited acting experience but fans were very excited when it was revealed that they would be playing the leading roles.
We got our first glimpse of Tim McGraw as James Dutton in an earlier “Yellowstone” episode via a flashback. We also learn through the “1883” flashback that the divide between the Dutton family and the Broken Rock Tribe has gone on for some time.
“1883” will be available for TV watchers to steam on Paramount Plus beginning this Sunday.
