Once Little Big Town heard newcomer Seth Ennis perform his new single, “Call Your Mama,” Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman couldn’t wait to hear the sentimental song again.
“A couple weeks after I wrote it, I was in the U.K. opening for Little Big Town,” Seth explains. “My mom ended up coming overseas and surprising me at a show. So I decided to play the song, for the first time, and surprise her.”
“Karen and Kimberly were listening backstage,” he continues, “and the second I walked off stage they said that I had to play that song in my set for the rest of the tour. The response on the road was so amazing and special that I knew I had to cut the song and put it out.”
Considering how much they loved the song, it’s no surprise the finished version includes background vocals from the CMA Vocal Group of the Year.
“Call Your Mama” is available to stream or download now, or you can check out an audio-only version on YouTube.
