Tim McGraw: Feel the Pride but always stay “Humble and Kind” 1

We have problems to deal with every day. There are good experiences as well. These things affect us in so many ways. But as what the song says let yourself feel the pride but always stay humble and kind.

The Song…

“Humble and Kind” is a song written by Lori McKenna. Tim McGraw first released it on January 20, 2016, as his second single from his 14th studio album “Damn Country Music.”

Later on, McKenna recorded her rendition of the song for her eighth studio album “The Bird and the Rifle” which was released in July 2016.

The song won the award for “Best Country Song” at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, “Video of the Year” at the 2016 CMT Music Awards, “Song of the Year” at 2016 CMA Awards, and “Country Song of the Year” at 2016 American Music Awards.

Furthermore, it has been certified platinum and reached the No.1 position on the country music charts in Canada and the United States.

The Music Video…

McGraw released the video of the song on his Facebook page on January 21, 2016. At that time, the song was expected to be released as the second single from the album in early February. Moreover, the video was the result of a brainstorm McGraw had while running on a treadmill and seeing a 30-second trailer for “Oprah Winfrey’s Belief Series.”

After taking some initiative, McGraw got Winfrey to avail footage for the video. The video, which was directed by Wes Edwards, featured scenes from around the world from Winfrey’s fall 2015 documentary series. The video won the top honor “Video of the Year” at the 2016 CMT Music Awards.

The Lyrics…

You know there’s a lot that goes by the front door
Don’t forget the keys under the mat
Childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church ’cause your momma says to
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be a waste of time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

The Book…

Moreover, a bound edition of “Humble and Kind” was released on May 17, 2016, in conjunction with graduation season by Hachette Books. In addition to the lyrics and illustrations, the book edition features an introduction by McGraw and an epilogue by McKenna. Also, McGraw pledged his book proceeds to the “Neighbor’s Keeper Fund” of the “Community Foundation” of Middle Tennessee.
