No list of country songs about moms would be complete without this stunning song by Garth Brooks. What few people know is that Brooks actually wasn't the first one to record the song. It was previously released by rock artist Bonnie Tyler in 2013 before Brooks released his version in 2014.
When Brooks performed the song on Good Morning America in November 2014, the entire music community couldn't stop talking about it. The song takes the form of a conversation between God and a baby about to be born, as the baby expresses his fear about entering the world. God reassures him by telling him there is a special person waiting for him in the world, who will always keep him safe:
"Hush now baby don't you cry
'Cause there's someone down there waiting
Whose only goal in life
Is makin' sure you're always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
It's almost time to go and meet your mom."
Brooks has recorded many emotional songs over the years, but this is one that will always tug at your heartstrings, no matter how many times you listen to it.
We'd like to wish all of the country music-loving moms a very Happy Mother's Day! Which one of these country songs about mothers reminds you of your own mom?
