Tim McGraw, Faith Hill Bathe Together In New '1883' Teaser

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill Bathe Together In New '1883' Teaser

A new teaser for the "Yellowstone" prequel "1883" shows country stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, starring as James and Margaret Dutton in the show, taking a bath together.

The two-minute teaser clip for the Taylor Sheridan drama shows a smiling Hill holding Tim's face before he wraps her up for a long kiss.

The video, narrated by Dutton daughter Elsa (played by Isabel May), also focuses on the hardships of life in the late 19th century.

"I heard a thousand stories, but none could describe this place, it must be witnessed to be understood, and yet I've seen it and understand it even less than before I first cast eyes on this place," Elsa says as the clip opens. "There were two journeys, one was filled with danger and death and despair. The other, adventure and wonder."

"We weren't poor, we weren't desperate, the road west is filled with failures. It was a dream, and the dream was coming true," she continues.

Paramount+ released the full cast for "1883" and descriptions for many new characters, earlier in the week. "1883" begins on December 19 on Paramount+.

Don McClean Reacts To Taylor Swift Breaking Record For Longest Billboard Hot 100 No. 1

Don McLean has graciously reacted to Taylor Swift breaking his long-held record for the longest song to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The 10-minute 13 second version of "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" recently broke the record held by McLean's 8 minute and 42 seconds-long song "American Pie" since 1972.

"Let's face it, nobody ever wants to lose that #1 spot, but if I had to lose it to somebody, I sure am glad it was another great singer/songwriter such as Taylor," McLean said in a statement posted on social media.

"There is something to be said for a great song that has staying power. 'American Pie' remained on top for 50 years and now Taylor Swift has unseated such a historic piece of artistry," he told Billboard.

Upon breaking the nearly 50-year record, an elated Taylor shared her joy with her fans on Twitter on Monday.

"I'm so proud of this song and the memories I have with you guys because of it. You truly chose this one and now you did THIS?! I'm floored. A ten minute song is at the top of the Hot 100," the singer-songwriter tweeted.

Taylor Swift, Ye Albums Reportedly Added To Grammy Nominees At Last Minute

Taylor Swift, Ye Albums Reportedly Added To Grammy Nominees At Last Minute

Taylor Swift's Evermore and Kanye West's Donda were reportedly added to the list of Grammy nominees at the very last minute.

The 2022 Grammy nominations were announced on Tuesday, November 23, but according to a New York Times report, the Recording Academy expanded its number of nominees from eight to ten in its big-four categories: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best New Artist, just the previous day.

Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. and board-of-trustees chair Tammy Hurt sent a letter out to the Academy's members on Tuesday, which was published in full on The Wrap, justifying the last-minute category change.

"The growth in music and your extraordinary engagement obligated us to seek this change. Perhaps in the past, the leadership would have waited for the next Awards cycle to make a change," reads the letter. "But one thing that we've heard loud and clear from you is that you are tired of waiting for big changes. You asked for - and you deserve - an organization that is as nimble and brave as you. In that spirit, we went to the Board of Trustees and made the case for this direction, and just minutes ago, they adopted it."

According to the Times report, West's Donda and Swift's Evermore, which were already nominated in other categories, were late additions to the album of the year nomination list.

Other nominees for album of the year include Justin Bieber's Justice, Olivia Rodrigo's Sour, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's Love For Sale, Doja Cat' Planer Her, H.E.R.'s Back Of My Mind, Billie Eilish's Happier Than Ever, Lil Nas X's Montero and Jon Batiste's We Are.

The Times also reported that the late expansion of the record of the year category saw Lil Nas X's "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)" and ABBA's "I Still Have Faith in You" added to the list that already included songs by Rodrigo, Bieber, Bennett and Lady Gaga, Batiste, Doja Cat, Eilish, Silk Sonic and Brandi Carlile.
