Just a day after releasing his new single, "Humble and Kind," Tim McGraw has shared the music video for the emotional song. 

McGraw has known about "Humble and Kind" for years, but waited to record it until the time felt right. That time came this year, when his oldest daughter Gracie left for college. With Gracie away from home and his other two daughters, Audrey and Maggie, growing up fast, McGraw felt that the song was appropriate for his life right now. 

But because the song has such a deep, personal meaning for McGraw, it was challenging for him to record without breaking down in tears.

"I cried after every take," McGraw told 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."

Since the song means so much to McGraw, he wanted the music video to have a special meaning to it as well. When McGraw released the video he wrote about it in a post to his Facebook, saying "I really wanted a video that showed the universality of the message of Humble and Kind."

McGraw was able to portray that message through the use of "scenes of Belief" from Oprah Winfrey. He spoke about Winfrey's involvement with the video in an interview with ET:

"I was running on the treadmill one morning and I saw the Belief series of Oprah's that was coming on and I saw the 30-second trailer of it and I thought, 'That's it! That's the look that I want this video to have!' I made a few phone calls to a few friends and she agreed to let us use the footage for the video."

The video features images of people of all nationalities, ages, and walks of life, showing how people around the world stay "humble and kind." McGraw is also in the video, standing in front of a black background as a spotlight passes over his face and he moves in and out of shadows.

For such a powerful song like "Humble and Kind," the music video is a perfect fit. See for yourself, and watch it below.

We think McGraw did a beautiful job with "Humble and Kind!" How about you?

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

Humble and Kind

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.
