“Mom”, by Garth Brooks, A Favorable Rival to “The Dance”


There are a lot of country songs about mothers. We would like to recommend “Mom” by Garth Brooks to you. Brooks has recorded a lot of emotional songs over the years, but this one will always yank your heartbeats, no matter how many times you pin your ears to it.

Song Highlighted On A Comeback Album

We were saddened when Garth Brooks retired from recording and performing in 2001. Nevertheless, we understand the conflict he faced between his career and family. He stepped away from his startling music career so that he could spend more time with his kids. He told an interviewer once that even after spending every day with his three children, it still didn’t feel like enough to him. Later, He described those years at home with his children as “phenomenal”.

It was September 2014 when he began his comeback tour. His ninth album “Man Against Machine” was likewise released on November 11, 2014, by RCA records Nashville and Pearl Records. It covered the song “Mom” – something that really warmed most of his fans especially when he sings it mirroring his emotions. Few already know that Brooks really wasn’t the first one to record the song. It was formerly released by the rock artist, Bonnie Tyler, in 2013 before.

An Unborn Child’s Conversation with God, They Say

It tells the story of an unborn baby, with fear of entering the world. He asks God if he can stay with him.. God uplifts him by telling about a special person waiting for him in the world – his Mom who will always keep him safe:

“So, 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.”

Really harks back how all mothers are dear, no matter what.

The country music star said “Mom” rivals one of his other personal favorites – 1990 hit “The Dance.” However, he said,

Everyone knows how much I loved my mom. Why no one has ever written this song before, I don’t know. Why I never wrote it before, I don’t know, but I’m grateful Don Sampson and Wynn Varble did. It took me almost a month to get it together to record it. My producer finally told me to man up and do it.”

In many live performances, Brooks still see and himself cry as the mob goes off in cheers (of course, unexpectedly after tears). Undeniably, Garth Brooks is more than just a singer. I admire the quality of his deepest lyrics, his sincere love for his fans and of course, his God-given talent. He positively uses his influence in order to make the world a better place.
