Lori McKenna Humble and Kind

Watch Lori McKenna perform “Humble and Kind” at the Grand Ole Opry.

Lori also paid tribute to McGraw’s vision for her song, which she wrote for her own children to remind them of what’s truly important as they make their way out into the world.  “Tim took a little prayer that I wrote for five kids that are here … he took it and made this moment of it,” she gushed.

“When Tim sings it, it seems like a bigger message, and when I saw the video it blew me away,” says McKenna, who admits she sometimes has a hard time getting through the song without crying. “When I sing it, no matter how hard I try, even if I tried to make it sound bigger, I see everything through my kitchen window. I see the song in such a simple way, and it’s acutely pointed at those five kids.”
