There are dozens (if not hundreds) of country songs about moms, and many country singers are even mothers themselves. For this reason, the Mother’s Day holiday is sure to be one that is surely not going to be overlooked on any humble artist’s calendar. Take a look at the women who helped shape the ladies and gents of country music — the ones that give us so much wonderful music year after year — in this list of Country Stars and Their Moms.
A few you may recognize alreay. Carrie Underwood‘s mom was featured in a music video, while Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina‘s mothers were frequently on television during their kids’ time on ‘American Idol.’ Others — like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Jake Owen‘s mothers — aren’t quite as visible. A few more have jobs on their kids’ tours. Miranda Lambert‘s mom, for example, runs her fan club, and what would Taylor Swift do without the input of Andrea Swift? Happy Mother’s Day to these moms — and all moms!
