Book edition coming for Tim McGraw's 'Humble and Kind'

NEW YORK (AP) — Tim McGraw's "Humble and Kind," the hit single inspired by his daughter's leaving for college, will soon become a book.

Hachette Books told The Associated Press on Thursday the bound edition of "Humble and Kind," featuring the lyrics, illustrations and an introduction by the country star, will come out May 17. The book is timed, of course, for graduation season. Lori McKenna, who wrote the lyrics, contributes an epilogue.

McGraw said in a statement issued through Hachette that he was proud the song "speaks equally to the world and the individual." He is donating proceeds from the book to charity.
