The Nashville Insider Mothers Day Edition


Taylor Swift tells NME magazine that her mother keeps her grounded. “I’m in the news every single day for multiple different reasons, and it can feel, at times, if you let your anxiety get the better of you like everybody’s waiting for you to really mess up – and then you’ll be done. A lot of the time I need to call my mom and talk for a really long time, just to remind myself of all the things that are great and all the things that matter. If you do something that defines your character to be not what the public thought you were, that’s the biggest risk.”

With Mother’s Day coming up, Trisha Yearwood recently asked fans to never take their mothers for granted. “When you have your mom, you never think about the people who don’t. It just doesn’t occur to you that Mother’s Day is tough for people. Now that I’ve lost my mom, Mother’s Day is tough for me. I’m a bonus mom of three girls, so I celebrate that way, but I miss my mom… If you have your mom, not just on Mother’s Day, call her every single day. Do not take it for granted. If you don’t have your mom, find a mom and hug her, and you have all my strength on Mother’s Day.”

Carrie Underwood tells CMT that she is planning to spend Mother’s Day with her son Isaiah. “I think I’ll be on the road. Isaiah is here with me. He goes everywhere with me. But I don’t think my husband will be able to orchestrate any Mother’s Day activities. Maybe just room service and a nice big breakfast.”

Carrie Underwood tells ABC that she has become happier since becoming a mother. “I feel overall like I’m kind of a happier person, and that’s kind of weird. I don’t know why, but I just feel like I’m just kind of in a better mood most of the time, unless I’m really sleepy.”

Jana Kramer tells People magazine that being a mother is challenging. “All of my friends have been like, �Yeah, don’t take this the wrong way. We totally thought that you were going to be super stressed out, basically, have a mental breakdown.’ Being a mom is the most incredible feeling in the world. I always wanted to be a mom. I’m so happy! I had so much anxiety before she was born! I couldn’t remember the last time I changed a diaper, and I was like, “How do you know what cry is what?” I wasn’t really around newborns a lot so I was extremely freaked out. The most challenging thing so far has definitely been figuring out what’s going on with her tummy. She’s such a gassy baby. I’m on Google 24/7 trying to figure out what to do and see what other moms say. It’s been tough �I hate to see her cry. I don’t wear anything nice anymore, I have spit-up on me constantly, I haven’t showered in three days, and I’m not quite sure when I brushed my teeth last.”

Brett Eldredge tells Nashville Gab that his mother is a large part of his success.“I’ve won the lottery with the mother I have. Everybody says it, but my mom is the best mom in the world. In my mind, she’s just so amazing. She really is something special and believed in me when it was just a side thought for somebody else to say, ‘Oh, he’s a good singer.’ She’s always calling me on the road making sure I’m getting enough sleep, making sure I’m being healthy. I’m always trying to make her proud, so she keeps me in check and is the reality I need when I’m in a sometimes unrealistic world traveling all over the place.”

With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, Brantley Gilbert recently honored his mom by saying: “More than anything, faith, I think, is [what] my mother…really instilled in me. Her faith in God is really something amazing. I do believe from the bottom of my heart that she’s an angel. I do believe the good Lord sent an angel to take care of me, and she did a really good job. She is my rock. She’s my heart.”

With Mother’s Day coming up, Thomas Rhett credits his mom with his success. He tells CMT: “My mom’s a saint. Growing up, mom really made sure that I had my head on straight and was always getting me involved in the youth group and always getting me to go on youth group trips and to camps,” he said in a recent interview. “So she is a big, big reason I am the way that I am today. Mom just instilled a lot of good morals into me, and I have a lot of my mom in me as far as morals go and, you know, just the way that we view life and the way that we love people. She was very skeptical about me getting into this whole thing in the first place, obviously for good reason. And now that she’s seen me do it, she’s very proud of me. She’s one of my biggest fans.”

Miranda Lambert loves touring with her mother. She says, “My mom is a riot. She’s like, such a party animal – she loves to be on the road with me. She comes out probably like once a month.”

Carrie Underwood wishes she would have listened more to her mother when she was a teen. She says, “If I could go back and talk to my 15-year-old self I’d be like, ‘Seriously, listen to your mom… Drink more water, put more sunscreen on, moisturize.’ There are a lot of people like me who wish they did more.”

Kelly Clarkson tells People that motherhood has changed her. “My whole life took a big 180. I never thought I was going to be a mom, so it’s very much changed my world in the most awesome way. I love what I do, but I feel like I relied on my career a lot for my self-worth. And now I’m more than that. I have a certain level of peace I didn’t know was going to come with it. My best friend always says, �You just want to create the family you never had.’ I might be doing that. In defense of my family, it happens. People fall out of love, and people go separate ways. People are human. I’ve accomplished a lot, but I guess the biggest success I want is that whenever I die people will say, �She was so successful as a mother, and as a wife.’ That’s kind of my big goal.”
