Humble and Kind

Humble and kind by Tim Mcgraw was released at the end of 2015. This song reached the top of the, Billboard Top Country Songs chart. We decide to choose this song because we felt it had a great message (to be kind and humble while being grateful). along with being very good in general.

The audience thinking it is “cool” is important so they become more likely to like it and listen to it again. His accent is very important because it helps give the song flow (necessary for a good song) while making the song sound good/ cooler then it would be without an accent to the audience, while getting their
