Country music superstar Tim McGraw has been making music for more than 20 years now. And as many know, one simply doesn’t make it that long in this business without not only being talented, but also being humble and kind.
As it turns out, those three words serve as the title of Tim’s newest song and probably his most powerful video yet. Debuting Jan. 21 on Tim’s Facebook page, the inspiration for the video for “Humble and Kind” came from the queen of all things good, Oprah Winfrey.
“I was running on the treadmill one morning and I saw “The Belief” series of Oprah’s,” Tim told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I saw a 30 second trailer and I thought that’s it, that’s the look. I made a few calls to a few friends and she agreed to let us use the footage for the video.”

When an artist is an A-Lister where they can stretch out and make the music they want as opposed to having to worry about securing a hit, that’s when special things happen.
“Humble and Kind” is that kind of special.
“It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve ever recorded,” said McGraw. “I really wanted a video that showed the universality of the message of humble and kind… I hope you like it as much as I do.”
