Showing Appreciation for Moms, Tim McGraw Drops “I Called Mama”

Tim McGraw I Called Mama

Just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, Tim McGraw has released his new song, “I Called Mama” showing appreciation to mothers everywhere.

Written by Lance Miller, Marv Green, and Jimmy Yeary, “I Called Mama” shares the message that not only through the good times but also the bad, the people you love, no matter how far away they live will be there for you. If you are feeling down, don’t wait to pick up the phone. Call a loved one, and they will help make your world a little brighter. It’s a reminder that we all need to hear during these trying times.

“Grabbed my guitar from my back seat / Wrote a song just for me / And I sung it for the blue sky / And a couple live oak trees / I thought of home, grabbed my phone from my pocket / And I called mama.”

In a recent press release, the award-winning singer shared what this song means to him, “On the one hand this song is literally, ‘ hey call your mom.’ On the other hand, you look at a time like this, there are real hardships for everyone, and it’s a great reminder that hearing someone’s voice who knows you and loves you can help you get through anything. I think it’s at these very difficult times that music can help and the power of a song can give someone a moment of clarity or comfort, or just a smile. Especially now, when we seem to need it more than ever.”

To go along with the single, a lyric video has also been released featuring never-before-seen footage of McGraw and his mom. To make it even more special, the singer asked his fans to send in photos and videos of their moms. Watch below.
