Tim McGraw performed his new single, “I Called Mama,” at the Bluebird Cafe during the ACM Awards on Sept. 16. The tune is currently No. 8 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 19 weeks.
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.
“My mom worked hard,” said Tim, when the song was released in May. “She was a go-getter. She always tried to do her best to provide for us. And there were times where it was almost impossible, but the thing my mom always taught us that I really remember—my sisters and I—always have dreams and always dream bigger than your circumstances. And then always treat people nicely, treat people kind.”
