Tim McGraw’s “I Called Mama” Reaches No. 1 on Mediabase Chart

Written by on October 12, 2020

Tim McGraw’s new single, “I Called Mama,” reached No. 1 on the Mediabase chart this week.

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.

“On the one hand, this song is literally, ‘Hey, call your mom,’” says Tim. “On the other hand, you look at a time like this, there are real hardships for everyone, and it’s a great reminder that hearing someone’s voice who knows you and loves you can help you get through anything. I think 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.”

“I Called Mama” is featured on Tim’s 16th studio album, Here On Earth, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in August 2020.

“Releasing and playing music has looked a little different in 2020,” said Tim via Twitter, “but I just found out #ICALLEDMAMA hit No. 1 at country radio this week!! Thanx to everyone who made this possible. I can’t thank you enough.”
