Tim McGraw to Release New Single "I Called Mama" Ahead of Mother's Day Weekend

Just in case you happen to forget that Mother's Day is this weekend, Tim McGraw will remind you when he drops his sentimental new single, "I Called Mama," on Friday, May 8.


Nash Country Daily reports that the track will debut with a lyric video containing footage of McGraw as a baby with his mom. The official music video will then drop later in May, featuring fan-submitted videos and photos of their moms. 


“On the one hand, this song is literally, ‘Hey, call your mom.' On the other’s a great reminder that hearing someone’s voice who knows you and loves you can help you get through anything," McGraw says about the song, written by Lance Miller, Marv Green and Jimmy Yeary.


"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.”
