“Yellowstone” fans are hopefully celebrating their Christmas with friends and family with a specialty whiskey and good conversation. It’s the time of year for reflection and relaxation. And we’re hoping that, unlike the Taylor Sheridan drama, there’s less conflict in the lives of our Outsiders.
In a super cool video creation, “Yellowstone” took the time to wish all fans of the show a very Merry Christmas. Posting a clip to Twitter, the show shared a reimagined Yellowstone Ranch-style Christmas video.
It details a replica of the Yellowstone barn complete with falling snow, horses, the infamous ‘Y’ logo of the ranch, and a country Christmas tune.
“Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas, #YellowstoneTV style! Created by artist Spencer Merolla,” the tweet says, giving the artist a shoutout.
The cute video lasts for about 35 seconds and creates an idyllic scene of Montana wilderness with glowing Christmas lights in the pine trees.
Tim McGraw Discusses “Yellowstone” Spinoff “1883”
While “Yellowstone” season 4 continues to heat up, the spinoff “1883” is just getting started. The Taylor Sheridan prequel follows the lives of James and Margaret Dutton as they head west from Texas to settle in the Montana countryside.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill take on the main roles portraying the original Duttons and their lives in the 19th century. Before John Dutton and his family ever sought to protect their Yellowstone ranch, James Dutton was seeking it out.
Recently, McGraw shared what drew him to the character and why he accepted the role.
“One of the things that drew me to James’ character is he’s such a complex guy. There’s so much going on in his head, and so much in his backstory,” he said. “And the arc of his character; he starts out caring only about his family, but grows to care about these people he’s leading. He may not show it, but you can see it in his actions and the things that he does. His PTSD is certainly there, and that’s part of what I put on him right away, from his time in the Civil War.”
He goes on to add that:
“In my mind, I don’t think he wanted to be a part of that war anyway, and didn’t believe in it. Then the South after the war and Reconstruction and the terrible mess that was made. I think that he just wanted to get out of there, and take his family to an untainted place.. He is trying to escape his ghosts. I don’t know that he ever clearly escapes them but hopefully, he finds peace down the road. But I think that it’s something that’s always there in him. It’s something that drives him, that and the love of his family.”
