Seth Ennis Recruits Little Big Town for ‘Call Your Mama’ [LISTEN]
Seth Ennis tapped country icons Little Big Town for some help on his latest song, "Call Your Mama." Readers can press play above to listen to the sweet song, which the country crooner says LBT played a big role in pushing him to share.
"“A couple weeks after I wrote it, I was in the UK opening for Little Big Town,” Ennis tells Bobby Bones. “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 [of Little Big Town] were listening backstage, and the second I walked offstage, 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.”
The heartfelt lyrics struck a cord with the ladies of the country foursome, both of whom are mothers themselves, as well as audiences throughout the overseas tour: "Call your mama / Sit and listen to her small town drama / And get you all caught up on all your sisters and your brothers / Boy, listen to your mother / 'Cause you ain't ever gonna get another / Someone you get to call your mama."
The band's connection to the song was compelling enough to convince them to support Ennis on a recording of the track, which is available for download now and will impact radio on Sept. 10.
Along with Little Big Town, up-and-comer Ennis has opened for huge country acts such as Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's Soul2Soul Tour, as well as Luke Bryan, Billy Currington and Florida Georgia Line. Ennis released his debut EP, Mabelle, in April of 2017.
