"My Little Girl" Tim McGraw (3:46)
"My Little Girl" by Tim Mcgraw (2006) is a song dedicated to me growing up through my elementary and middle school years. My parents never restricted my dreams or future goals. They always told me "If you dream it, you can make it happen. You can do anything you set your mind to." It really shaped me into the determined person I am today.
