Hear Tim McGraw’s Spanish Skills on New Version of ‘Humble and Kind’
In a world where so many people are focused on the differences between us all, leave it to Tim McGraw to find a way to show us that in essence, we are more alike than we know, especially when it comes to our values. McGraw's Spanish-language version of his mega-hit "Humble and Kind" speaks volumes.
"My Spanish may not be perfect, but if I can reach out and touch someone in a language that’s not my own — that’s a good enough reason enough to try," McGraw says of the song and video titled "Nunca te Olvides de Amar," which literally translates to "Never Forget to Love."
“I’ve said repeatedly that ‘Humble and Kind’ has a universal message, so singing the song in Spanish, for me, is a way to really stand up to that statement. It’s one thing to say ‘I’m being universal’ and it’s another thing for me to try to reach out across a language barrier and put in the effort to deliver that same message. To make someone understand that you’re trying to love them through a song and work to make people feel it is a pretty cool thing," he says.
McGraw always seems to find a way to make an impact with his music. That was demonstrated most recently via his album alongside his wife Faith Hill entitled The Rest of Our Life, which debuted at number one upon its release late last year.
