This is one country song about moms that is guaranteed to get you every time. "The Baby" was one of Blake Shelton's earliest hits of his career after it claimed the top spot on the Billboard country charts.
Although Shelton didn't write the song, a huge part of what made it so successful is his honest and heartfelt delivery of the lyrics. The narrator describes the way a mother views all of her children, and how she always had a fondness for him since he was the youngest. Since Shelton is also the baby in his family, his connection to the song's story is strong.
The song follows the narrator from childhood to adult life, and how his mother always held him close to her heart, even when he did act up a little bit. As he grows older, their bond remains unbreakable, as he sings "She said 'I don't care if you're 80, you'll always be my baby.'"
