Last Sunday, we got our first look at Tim McGraw as James Dutton with a sneak peek at “1883,” a “Yellowstone” spinoff.

We are all super excited for the “Yellowstone” prequel as it will debut next month on December 19. McGraw is also very excited for fans to see him and his wife, Faith Hill, work on the show. On Thursday, however, the country music star had members of the United States military on his mind. America is celebrating Veterans Day, a day set aside to honor our servicemen and women who protect the freedoms that we all enjoy. Millions of people are using social media today (Thursday) to show their gratitude to our soldiers. McGraw did the same, taking to social media to share his thankfulness to our nation’s protectors.

McGraw assists military members with his “Operation Homefront” charity that provides homes to wounded veterans. Along with his moving words, the “1883” star shares a video about the work that Operation Homefront does for our country’s military members. The video touts the organization’s work in building homes for wounded veterans. Homefront has been a tremendous success as numerous returning soldiers now have a home to call their own.

“We will never be able to thank our veterans enough for their service,” McGraw says. “It was an honor to join forces with Operation Homefront on tour over the years to give back to these heroes. Let’s all show our gratitude this Veterans Day.”

According to the video posted by the “1883” star, Operation Homefront has provided 108 homes to United States military members. McGraw also says his fan base deserves credit for assisting these military heroes.

“You make me proud to be an American,” McGraw says.

‘1883’ Will the Story of How the Dutton Family Became Powerful

There is a lot of excitement surrounding “1883” and rightfully so as it expects to be a hit among “Yellowstone” fans.

Country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will play the leading roles. McGraw plays James Dutton and Hill plays his wife, Margaret Dutton. “1883” will tell the story of how the Duttons came to settle in Montana and how they created the “Yellowstone” Ranch and turned into one of the biggest cattle ranches in the country.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill aren’t the only big-time stars dotting the “1883 cast. Western favorite Sam Elliott and star actor Billy Bob Thornton will also play roles in the series. Young actress Isabel May is also part of the outstanding cast.

We got our first real glimpse of “1883” during the season four premiere of “Yellowstone” last Sunday. It is easy to tell what there is so much excitement surrounding the show.
