LORI MCKENNA PERFORMS “HUMBLE & KIND” ON “THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT”
NOMINATED FOR TWO ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, WINS BEST COUNTRY SONG AT 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS & SONG OF THE YEAR AT THE 50TH ANNUAL CMA AWARDS
Lori McKenna made her late night television debut last night on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” performing her solo-penned, No. 1 hit “Humble & Kind” (Tim McGraw). Watch the full performance HERE.
The performance culminates a series of breakthrough years for the acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer, who recently garnered two nominations at 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards—Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year (“Humble and Kind”).
Additionally, McKenna recently won Best Country Song at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards for the second consecutive year following last year’s win for “Girl Crush” (co-written with Liz Rose and Hillary Lindsey). She is the first songwriter to win back-to-back awards in the category since Shania Twain in 1999-2000. Moreover, McKenna also won Song of the Year at The 50th Annual CMA Awards. She is the first songwriter to win the award in consecutive years since Vince Gill (1991-1993) and is the first female songwriter to win back-to-back nods in the history of the CMAs. McKenna is also the first solo songwriter to win the award since 2011.
McKenna’s own version of “Humble & Kind” appears on her Grammy-nominated new album, The Bird & The Rifle, which is out now on CN Records via Thirty Tigers (purchase here). Produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album was recorded live over ten days in Nashville and has received overwhelming critical praise.
NPR Music calls it “one of 2016’s best releases,” while Pitchfork asserts, “one of the most accomplished and devastating singer-songwriter albums of the year,” and The Washington Post declares, “the best-sounding album of McKenna’s 15-year recording career.” People Magazine recently premiered a stripped-down acoustic video of McKenna performing “Humble & Kind.” Watch HERE. Additionally, “CBS News Sunday Morning” recently profiled the acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer. Watch the full piece HERE.
