“It all starts with the writing, and Taylor Sheridan is a brilliant writer,” Elliot said via Parade, about his part in the project.

“I think the western genre speaks clearly to both of us. The classic struggles of man against man, man against nature, and man against himself. It’s all there, in 1883, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”

Tim McGraw

The country music star Tim McGraw, 54, will play the role of the patriarch of Yellowstone's Dutton family, James Dutton.

While McGraw is known for his work in the music industry, this is not the first time he has dabbled in the acting world.

McGraw has been acting on and off since 1992 and is most famously known for his roles in Tomorrowland, The Blind Side, Friday Night Lights, and Flicka.

“This is truly a dream job,” McGraw said via Parade. “Taylor [Sheridan] has found a way of storytelling that brilliantly creates these epic dramas and family sagas with so much depth and creativity."

"The Duttons are tremendous characters and it’s so thrilling to be able to bring them to life.  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,” he continued.

Faith Hill

Joining McGraw will be his wife of 25 years, Faith Hill, 54, who is also a famous country music star.

Hill will be playing the role of the matriarch of the Yellowstone's Dutton family Margaret Dutton.

Hill has never really dabbled in acting before, but on the music side, has been very successful with over 40 million albums sold worldwide.

“This is the opportunity of a lifetime,” Hill said via Parade. “The Duttons are a formidable family and it is an absolute dream to bring such a strong female character like Margaret Dutton to life. I am humbled and honored to work with Taylor [Sheridan] and his entire team.”
