Mother's Day is this weekend and I hope you are all planning to spoil the special moms in your life. In honor of all the wonderful behind-the-scenes mothers out there, we caught up with country music's hottest guys and they gushed exclusively to us about their moms! Check out what they had to say about their mamas as we all collectively swoon.
"What I love most about my mother is her passion for her family and her kids. She would do anything for us and she always has our back. She supported me through all my sports activities and music lessons, and she encouraged me to follow my dreams to become a country music singer. Mom even gave up everything else she was doing to be with me in Los Angeles for five months while I was on "American Idol" because I was underage. One of her favorite Mother's Days was when I was much younger, and we all went to Lake Benson Park near where we live in Garner, North Carolina and had strawberry shortcakes. Mom loves to be outside and she loves experiences more than gifts. Having her family with her at one our favorite places and just enjoying the day together was a great Mother's Day."
Scotty McCreery released his autobiography, Go Big Or Go Home: The Journey Toward The Dream this week and kicked off his national book tour. Scotty also just created his first public Snapchat, be sure to find him @ScottyMcCsnap.
"I usually love surprising my Mom with flowers for Mothers' Day. She is the greatest of all time & definitely the most fun. My siblings & myself try to make her feel like every day is Mother's Day. God's greatest creation is mothers.... especially mine."
Jerrod Niemann released his newest single "A Little More Love" last week featuring Lee Brice - the two recently performed the single live for the first time at the iHeartCountry Festival. Here is the link to purchase the single.
“Some of my favorite memories are from when my mom ran sound for me as a kid. Which is the funniest thing because my mom knows nothing about sound. She read the booklet for a sound system they bought me for my birthday. So I’d walk around in the crowd and my mom would literally turn the dials as she was reading the booklet on how to turn the volume up on my mic or the speakers. It's the funniest dynamic to look back and have your sound person be your Mom. But that’s just the kind of person she is, to support me and be at any gig even if there were only 10 people there."

"I try to talk to my momma as often as I can to let her know how I am doing, where I am and just to check in on her too. This year for Mother’s Day, I will be in NYC promoting my new album You Should Be Here but I will definitely have a little something sweet sent to her door so she knows I am thinking about her."

"I love that my mom isn't afraid to have fun and be adventurous. Last year my parents sold their house and everything they own to hit the road in an RV!!! My wife and I saw them at Stagecoach last week where we celebrated an early Mother's Day and cheered them on their way up the West Coast."
