Tim McGraw has unleashed his new song “I Called Mama,” a song that is here just in time for Mother’s Day this coming weekend (May 10). The song is a look at the ways we ground ourselves when we are shaken or hurting, seen through the lens of the special connection we all share with our mothers.
“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,” McGraw said in a statement. “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.”
The single will have a beautiful lyric video containing never-before-seen footage of Tim as a baby with his mom, which will be out at noon today (May 8), HERE. Also, McGraw asked fans to send in their videos and photos of their moms to be included in the larger scale music video that will be released later this month.
“Mother’s definitely deserve to be honored more than one day a year. We’ve have had such an incredible response of people sharing their special Mama videos, we are going to get you something really special in a few weeks,” McGraw added.
“I Called Mama” was written by Lance Miller, Marv Green and Jimmy Yeary and was produced by McGraw and Byron Gallimore.
