“I Called Mama,” which was written by Lance Miller, Marv Green and Jimmy Yeary and produced by McGraw and Byron Gallimore, was originally planned to be just an album cut for McGraw’s forthcoming project, however, with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting people everywhere, McGraw and his team shifted their plans.
“It was sort of unexpected in a lot of ways because I cut the song before all of this [COVID-19 quarantine] stuff happened … to add to the album I’ve been working on for a while, and it’s been just slowly cutting songs and mixing them and remixing them and putting music together. And I found these songs I wanted to go in and get done before the summer came and the [2020 Here on Earth] Tour came, and “Mama” was one of them,” McGraw recently explained to The Boot.
The song is resonating with fans everywhere.
