“I’m a son of a momma A son of a dad Who will never stop loving me and being there And giving me everything they have Let me tell you that I get it now I’ll admit it now Why I am the man I am I’m the son of a momma, a son of a dad Who give a damn”
It’s a song that pretty much everybody can relate to: I mean, who hasn’t had the “as long as you’re living under my roof” card pulled on them by their parents at some point?
But eventually, most of us will look back and thank the good Lord above that we had parents who gave a damn.
The song was co-written by Dillon, alongside powerhouse songwriters Casey Beathard and “Philbilly” Phil O’Donnell. And for background vocals, Dillon called in someone special: His own mother, Becky Montgomery.
The sister of country music legends John Michael Montgomery and Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry, Becky has also joined Dillon onstage for some performances of the powerful song.
Tonight, @dilloncmusic took to the @opry stage for a live debut of the title track off his upcoming album ‘Son Of A’ (out this Friday ❤️) —
all with a little help from his mama on background vocals.
“Son of A” has already been announced as Dillon’s next single, and will be impacting at radio on November 1.
This is one of those special songs that can launch a new artist’s career to the freakin’ moon. I saw Dillon perform live recently, and when he got to this song, let me tell you the rowdy crowd stopped in their tracks and went dead silent.
It’s just that damn good.
I know I’ve already said it, but if this song isn’t a future #1, I don’t know what is.
