Tim McGraw’s “I Called Mama” Reaches No. 1 on Mediabase Chart

Tim McGraw’s new single, “I Called Mama,” reached No. 1 on the Mediabase chart this week.

Penned by Lance Miller, Marv Green and Jimmy Yeary, “I Called Mama” is about the special connection mothers share with their children, especially when times are tough.

“On the one hand, this song is literally, ‘Hey, call your mom,’” says Tim. “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.”

“I Called Mama” is featured on Tim’s 16th studio album, Here On Earth, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in August 2020.

“Releasing and playing music has looked a little different in 2020,” said Tim via Twitter, “but I just found out #ICALLEDMAMA hit No. 1 at country radio this week!! Thanx to everyone who made this possible. I can’t thank you enough.”

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

2020 was a year that taught us all a lot. Thomas Rhett reflects on the year we just left behind, and what he will take with him into this new year, “You know, 2020 has definitely been hard in many ways, especially for a lot of different families who have either lost work or people that have been on the front lines working in hospitals, or teachers trying to teach three year olds how to learn their letters and their numbers. But for us, I think 2020 has had several silver linings, and for me, I think I was going at such a rapid pace that 2020 definitely forced me to slow down. And so I hope I can take that mindset back into 2021.”
