Us here at Keepin’ it Country want to wish all the moms out there a happy Mother’s Day! Just in case you’re looking for a playlist of songs to help celebrate the weekend with your Mom, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite country songs about moms. Take a listen to our list below and let us know what YOUR picks are for mother’s day.
A personal song written by Carrie herself to her mom is our first pick for our Mother’s Day playlist. The music video features Carrie and her real life mom, as pictured to the side of this post, on her wedding day as she tells her mom that she doesn’t need to worry about her daughter, because she learned from her. “Mama’s Song” was the fourth single from Carrie’s “Play On” album, which was co-written by Carrie with Luke Laird, Kara DioGuardi, and Marti Frederikson. BONUS: The video also features Carrie’s real-life husband, Mike Fisher.
Every child loves his or her mom, but country artists don’t just love their mamas — they sing about them. On this Mother’s Day, Keepin’ It Country wants to spotlight these mama-lovin’ crooners and some of the greatest songs dedicated to those very special ladies in their lives.
Before walking down the aisle, Carrie Underwood released a song for her mom, entitled “Mama’s Song,” to assure her mom that the man she chose is everything her mother could want for her daughter. “Mama’s Song” made its way on to the Billboard charts, including the Hot 100, Country Songs, Radio Songs, Digital Songs, and Billboard Canadian Songs.
