Big Machine recording artist Tim McGraw has remained humble and kind throughout his career, and now the song that adequately describes him, current single “Humble and Kind“, is growing before his eyes.

Already soaring up the charts, the Lori McKenna penned tune is striking a chord with country music fans like few other songs have done in the recent past. Taking notice of the enormous response to the track, Hachette Books has entered into a partnership with McGraw to publish a book based on the lyrics.

The book, likewise titled Humble and Kind, will not only contain the lyrics to the song, but will also include line illustrations, an introduction from McGraw, and an epilogue by McKenna. Fans can expect the hardcover book to be released on May 17, 2016, in time for graduation season.

In speaking of the song that has reached and touched millions, McGraw stated:

It is a rare moment when a song comes along that speaks equally to the world and the individual. A song that transcends. A song that reaches into the heart of everyone who hears it. “Humble and Kind” is one of those songs.

Hachette Books Publisher Mauro DiPreta added:

With the growing incivility around us, the message in HUMBLE AND KIND couldn’t be more timely. As a father and a publisher, I could not be more thrilled to help remind all of us of the value of humility and kindness. Tim’s passion and commitment to this mission is simply inspiring.
