Tim McGraw’s “Humble and Kind,” the hit single inspired by his daughter’s leaving for college, will soon become a book.
Hachette Books told The Associated Press on Thursday the bound edition of “Humble and Kind,” featuring the lyrics, illustrations and an introduction by the country star, will come out May 17. The book is timed, of course, for graduation season. Lori McKenna, who wrote the lyrics, contributes an epilogue.
McGraw said in a statement issued through Hachette that he was proud the song “speaks equally to the world and the individual.” He is donating proceeds from the book to charity.
This song is so special to me. I really wanted a video that showed the universality of the message of Humble and Kind. Thanks to Wes Edwards for executing this vision and to Oprah Winfrey for lending us scenes of Belief from all over the world. I hope you like it as much as I do.
