Although he isn’t roping and riding on 1883 anymore, Tim McGraw still knows how. He showed off his skills on Instagram. The singer-actor-do-it-all-entertainer hasn’t forgotten the skills he learned at cowboy camp. Taylor Sheridan would be proud of the James Dutton actor, that’s for sure.

When McGraw and the rest of the 1883 cast signed onto the project, they had to learn some things first. Sheridan got the people he wanted to get and then started to put them to work. Every one of the main characters had to go through cowboy camp. A little boot camp about all things cowboy. Roping, riding, wrangling, and so much more.

Of course, all of that information and those skills can easily go away if you don’t work on them. Sometimes, it isn’t like riding a bike. However, it isn’t too hard for McGraw to get his rope and fake steer and brush up on his skills. He showed off on his Instagram page to the delight of a whole bunch of folks.

“Still got it,” the actor captioned his post. And, he’s right. He does still have it. McGraw showed off two different tosses and he landed his target both times. While it isn’t a live animal and just a training prop, it is still impressive.

The funniest part of the whole thing is the fact that Tim McGraw has traded in his 1883 garb for the sweatpants and hoodie. Complete with the beanie that we see the country music start sporting in place of his cowboy hat every now and then.

If you’re a fan of McGraw, 1883, whatever it is, then this video is great. There were some costars and others that cheered on the Dutton patriarch actor including LaMonica Garrett.
