I’ll Always Be Your Mother is a new mother and son wedding bluegrass music song that I wrote for my son’s wedding in 2018.
When my son told me he was getting married, I knew I wanted to write a bluegrass music song for him and his new bride. My intention was to give him something special and personal. As I started to write the song, it became more obvious to me that it would be a wonderful song to be played at the wedding that he and I could dance to.
The focus of this mother and son song was not so much about him as a boy growing up. It was about his special wedding day and the start of his new life with his new bride. I wanted to welcome his new bride into our family as my new daughter and wanted her to know that we could always share his love. I wanted to let him know that I would always be there for him. I wanted my son to see his new wife as his best friend and that it’s important to always be faithful to each other.
I wrote the lyrics for this mother and son wedding song and Jim McShane wrote the bluegrass music. We recorded the song in a traditional version and played it at the wedding. It was beautiful to everyone, young and old, male and female. I was encouraged by so many people to publish the CD and make it available to others. So, with this encouragement, Jim and I also recorded a country version and released our single, recorded in both the traditional and country versions in May of 2007. The CD is available at https://lessonpros.com/where you can view the lyrics and listen to a short clip of both versions of the song.
My new father daughter wedding song titled I’ll Always Be Your Daughter was released in May 2008. I am recording a new bride and groom first dance song titled Two Little Words. It will be released in June 2009.
I am not only a proud mother of two boys and a daughter-in-law, I am now a proud grandmother of beautiful little girl.
Best wishes to all mothers & sons, fathers & daughters, and all parents on their special wedding day.
