After being invited by his 6th-grade nephew, Jace Jewell, Tim McGraw made a surprise visit at Grassland Middle School on Friday to speak out against bullying.

“It’s not really my forte. But after Jace asked me to come and speak about this, I got some of my talking points together,” McGraw said after the assembly. “I think it’s important for the students to hear. Anything I can do to stop bullying is what I’ll do.”
Those talking points included the story of Asher Brown, a 13-year old student in Texas who committed suicide last month after being bullied. “He was bullied to death,” McGraw told the kids as he encouraged them to “speak up if they see bullying behavior, walk away from bad situations and, above all, not to fall into the trap of becoming a bully.” (via The Tennessean)
