Country music darling, Taylor Swift wrote the song to her mother who had sacrificed for Swift’s career, including living in a car.

(And I love you for giving me your eyes, Staying back and watching me shine)

When the song was released, it quickly became one of the most played songs on Mothers’ day ( Everything that I should know, You showed me just how to walk without your hands, cause mom you always were, the perfect fan)
