My Granddaughter Loves Tim McGraw!

How cute is this!!! My little four month old granddaughter, G5, loves Tim McGraw’s song, “Humble and Kind.”  Whenever she’s fussy or crying her mom plays the song for her and she calms right down.  Sometimes she is so comforted that she falls fast asleep while other times she sings along.  Check out her cute video on the lmbhf Facebook page HERE!
