Country music superstar Tim McGraw is the proud father of three daughters. And, on Wednesday (May 5) he celebrated one of them on a very special day.
That daughter is Gracie McGraw, his eldest, with his wife Faith Hill. And, May 5 is Gracie’s 24th birthday. As part of his celebration, Tim McGraw posted a very sweet video of him and Gracie singing a duet in a vehicle.
The song they are singing is “What Kind of Fool.” It was recorded by two legendary performers – Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb.
The video Tim McGraw shared on Twitter begins with him and Gracie singing at the same time. Then, Gracie gets a chance to go solo – with Streisand in the background. Unsurprisingly, the birthday girl sounds great performing the sad song.
And, even though the song is a heartbreaker, father and daughter share a few laughs along the way. It’s a very sweet moment between the two.
Proud Father Shares Birthday Message With Daughter
In addition to sharing the video of his duet with Gracie, Tim McGraw also added a very sweet birthday message for his oldest child.
“Happy birthday to my oldest baby girl…..24! I’m so proud of her! She is so talented and capable….she can do anything she sets her mind to…..above all, she has a heart of gold, loves her family and friends unconditionally,” the proud father posted. “She is simply a jewel in this world and I am so proud of the young woman she has become….. Gracie, u make a daddy so proud!!! I love you Ps…I know u figured out Cinco de Mayo was your birthday, waaay before I realized you did!!!”
Fans of the McGraw family used Tim’s post to share their birthday wishes with Gracie on Twitter.
“Happy birthday Gracie,you are so blessed to have the parents you got, not because of their success and wealth but because they are great human beings. I met your Mom before she was a headliner and Dad during the Spontaneous Combustion Tour and they are wonderful humble people,” one fan said.
“Happy Birthday beautiful Gracie! You have a wonderful voice…definitely worth (recording)! Enjoy your special day!” another shared.
Gracie also received praise for her version of “What Kind of Fool.”
“She deserves a Grammy for that performance!!” one fan said.
Gracie McGraw Loves Barbra Streisand
Gracie McGraw is definitely a fan of Barbra Streisand.
The duet posted by Tim McGraw on Wednesday is not the first time Gracie has performed a Streisand song on social media. Last month, the young performer shared a video of her performing another Streisand song in honor of “Babs'” 79th birthday.
The song was “People” from “Funny Girl.” And, Gracie shared her performance of it via Instagram on April 24. It’s definitely worth watching.
