The Yellowstone crew brought Dutton Ranch to the Stagecoach Festival!
“Hey y’all, we’re here in Palm Springs, California, at Stagecoach 2023 [and] we’ve got a massive Yellowstone activation going on,” Eric Nelsen — who portrays Ennis on spinoff 1883 — said in a Saturday, April 29, Instagram video shared via the TV show’s account. “We’re here to support some of our favorite actors from Yellowstone, who are performing. It’s going to be incredible! Can’t wait to see the fans and hopefully you all are here!”
The Indio, California, musical festival set up a replica version of the Dutton Ranch from Yellowstone, where guests can “kick back” in “Dutton-style all weekend long,” per a description on the festival’s website. The pop-up also features photo opportunities, cornhole boards and plenty of free Yellowstone swag. Several of the show stars — including Nelsen, 31, LaMonica Garrett and Amanda Jaros — have also been hanging out in the Yellowstone tent.
“#1883 Gone [sic] be a long weekend,” Garrett, 47, captioned a Friday, April 28, Instagram Story of himself and costar James Landry Hebert smiling in coordinating cowboy hats and boots.
In addition to relaxing at the activation, the Yellowstone universe stars are eager to watch costar Luke Grimes perform on the main stage on Saturday.
“See you in the desert @stagecoach,” Grimes, 39, wrote via Instagram in September 2022, teasing his live gig.
Grimes, in addition to starring on the cowboy drama as Kayce Dutton, has also started pursuing music. His debut single “No Horse to Ride” dropped in December 2022.
“Church music was the first music in my life. My dad was a pastor, and I was at church three days a week. I was the church drummer starting at age 9,” the 50 Shades of Grey actor told Country Living the previous September of his musical beginnings. “From there, my dad listened to Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard — all of those old-school outlaw country guys. We would always play that on boys’ trips. It’s what got me into country music.”
He added at the time: “The first place I moved after Ohio was New York City. Having a drum set in New York is impossible — your neighbors would kill you — so I got a guitar and started teaching myself chords. It’s been a part of my life ever since. If I have an acting gig, I always have a guitar. And not just because I’m working on an album. It’s always been a little buddy that I can take around anywhere. It’s somewhere to put some of that energy when you’re in a new place and don’t know what else to do.”
