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’s version appears on her album, The Bird & The Rifle. The song recently won a GRAMMY for Best Country Song and is nominated for ACM Song and Single of the Year.

Lori performed the tune on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and he probably cried. We thought about it.
