For country music stars, their families are their biggest support systems and number one priorities. As we all know, mothers are often the glue that holds a family together through thick and thin. In celebration of mothers across the globe, let’s take a look at some top country music artists and their loving mothers!
Blake Shelton and Dorothy
“I kind of have a relationship with her like Ricky Ricardo and Lucy had,” he joked with HuffPost TV before a Christmas special featuring a song he co-wrote with his mother. “She pressures me to sing these songs that she writes.”Jake Owen and Mitzi
“My mom has always been a really patient, understanding person. So, I think I could take some of that from her a little bit. I’m a bit impatient and nonunderstanding sometimes, but I think that’s what keeps me competitive and always pushing forward. I get that from my dad,” Jake reflected.Luke Bryan and LeClaire
“I was worried that if I won, she might die,” Luke Bryan told Great American Country of his 2010 ACM win for ‘Top New Artist.’ “I think I was hyperventilating,” LeClaire confessed.“When I heard the ‘L’ come out (of the presenter’s mouth) I fell over into the lap of the man seated next to me, breaking a toenail and scraping my hand!”Carrie Underwood and Carole
“My mom would sew my outfits for talent shows,” Underwood recalled to Marie Claire. “She would get material from Walmart. It was a little Coal Miner’s Daughter up in there.”
Miranda Lambert and Beverly
“Nothing beats a handwritten note from Mom,” Miranda mused via Twitter after returning home for the holidays to basket of goodies.Hillary Scott and Linda Davis
“To sing a duet with my mom, that’s the ultimate. It’s a tall order, first of all, because she’s a part of one of the most iconic duets in country music,” Scott shared with The Boot, referring to Davis’ duet with Reba McEntire, “Does He Love You.”
Sam Hunt and Joan
“I’m here with my mother, Joan Hunt,” Sam Hunt shared with Entertainment Tonight at the 2015 ACM Awards. “This is her first award show as well, so we’re going to do it together…I’m somewhat emotional and I think I get it from her, but so far, she’s kept it together. So we’ll see how the rest of the night goes.”
Carrie Underwood’s “Mama’s Song” serves as a heartfelt tribute to her mother Carole and mothers everywhere. Enjoy the emotional lyrics and music video below!
Mama you taught me to do the right things/
So now you have to let your baby fly/
You’ve given me everything that I will need/
To make it through this crazy thing called life
