Almost a year ago, Tim McGraw covered Glen Campbell's Oscar-nominated song, "I'm Not Gonna Miss You", at the 87th Academy Awards ceremony. His deeply emotional performance brought audience members and other viewers to tears.

So, what has he been up to lately? As recent as January 21st of this month, McGraw released a new music video, "Humble and Kind", a song written by Lori McKenna and taken from his last album, Damn Country Music, released November 2015. McGraw describes the song as being a "letter to your kids" and about living one's life as a steward of humility, kindness and patience. His delivery as well as the song lyrics provide a serious message with heart similar to McGraw's hit song, "Live Like You Were Dying". In some ways, Humble and Kind's message reminds me of Glen Campbell's "Try A Little Kindness".

On social media, Tim McGraw posted the following message on the video's release date:
This song is so special to me. I really wanted a video that showed the universality of the message of Humble and Kind. Thanks to Wes Edwards (video director) for executing this vision and to Oprah Winfrey for lending us scenes of Belief from all over the world. I hope you like it as much as I do.
In this video, McGraw talks with Taste of Country about "Humble and Kind":

Far from the genre of outlaw country music, Willie Nelson has cut a new album, "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin", covering classic songs written by George and Ira Gershwin such as "Embraceable You" and "They Can't Take That Away from Me". Due for release on February 26, 2016 (Legacy Label), guest artists include Cyndi Lauper and Sheryl Crow.

Willie Nelson was recently selected as the 2015 recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
