Tim McGraw's latest single, "Humble and Kind," is one that he's known about for years. Written by Lori McKenna, McGraw said he wanted to wait to record the song until he could make it seem true. 

Finally, McGraw decided that now was the perfect time for him to record the song, in which the narrator speaks as a parent giving advice to their children. The song really hits home for McGraw right now, since his oldest daughter, Gracie, recently left home for college.

Considering his current situation, the song provoked a lot of emotion from McGraw, who found it challenging to make it through the recording process without breaking down in tears.

"I cried after every take," Tim confesses to The Boot. "I would try to get myself together, and I’d get halfway through it, and I would just start blubbering every time I’d try to sing a line."

With Gracie leaving for college and his other two daughters, Audrey and Maggie, growing up, McGraw felt like now was the perfect time to record the song, offering them advice as they prepare to go off into the world.

In the song, the narrator encourages his children to always mind their manners, and to, "Hold the door, say please, say thank you / Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie / I know you got mountains to climb but / Always stay humble and kind."

"Humble and Kind" is McGraw's second single off of his album Damn Country Music, and the last track on the album. Although it was an emotional song to record, McGraw has a great fondness for it, saying, "It's probably one of my favorite songs I've ever recorded...It emotes such a great message. You can't help but fall into it."

You can listen to McGraw's emotional new single "Humble and Kind" in the clip below.

LYRICS BELOW

You know there's a light that glows by the front door
Don't forget the key's under the mat
Childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church 'cause your momma says to
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won't be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
I know you got mountains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don't expect a free ride from no one
Don't hold a grudge or a chip and here's why
Bitterness keeps you from flyin'
Always stay humble and kind
Know the difference between sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
"I love you" ain't no pick up line so
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
I know you got mountains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When those dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

When it's hot, eat a root beer popsicle
Shut off the AC and roll the windows down
Let that summer sun shine
Always stay humble and kind
Don't take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you're goin
Don't forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind
