Lori McKenna loves Tim McGraw’s version of “Humble & Kind.” Most people love Tim’s version and he did a fantastic job on it, worthy of the accolades he was nominated for, but– there’s just something about Lori singing it.
Maybe it’s because she wrote it by herself as a note and a prayer to her five kids or maybe it’s because her voice has this profound sadness to it, whatever it is, her voice is powerful and moving. In a much different way than Tim’s version.
Lori performed the tune on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and he probably cried. We thought about it.
