NEW SINGLE “A BETTER CIGARETTE” AVAILABLE NOW!

“A Better Cigarette” is a lyrical and story-driven song, decorated with crisp harmonies, honey-smooth pedal steel guitar and classic, finger-pickin’ acoustic guitars. All these elements combine to make a sound that is traditional yet modern, ethereal yet homegrown. The relateableness and tonality of the song grabs the listener by the ears, but eventually lands in the listener’s heart.” - American Songwriter

TOUR DATES

"Best Up-and-Comer" at CMA Fest 2014 - RollingStone.com

"MamaDear combines the best of the music of the golden age of yesterday with the edginess of tomorrow…sounds so good today! I am a fan…big time!" -Tom Douglas (CMA Award winning songwriter for "The House That Built Me," "I Run To You," "Grown Men Don't Cry").

"It’s safe to say that MamaDear will be able to add quite a few more porch pictures to their collection as they continue to tour the country and win over fans. The group is packed with the potential and definitely one to watch as they begin to make a name for themselves." - Laura Spinelli (The Shotgun Seat)

"MamaDear blows through with a breath of fresh air with lyrics that are infectiously optimistic, stellar harmonies, and unbridled enthusiasm in their live performances. If this is what country music's future looks like, we're in good hands." -Judi Turner (Publicist, Turner and Co, Leadership Music)

                                                     

MamaDear never met a porch they didn’t like.

It was on a front porch just five years ago that Kelly Bradway, Dan Wilson, and Parker Bradway formed the country music trio they now call MAMADEAR —named after a lovely lady with the loveliest porch in Tennessee. Since then, they have aspired to treat every stage like it's their porch and every fan like a friend while playing shows across America and opening for acts like Martina McBride, Brett Eldredge, CAM, Chase Bryant, Kristian Bush, Charlie Daniels, Michael Ray and more.  With every stop from coast to coast, MAMADEAR carries home with them wherever they go.

All it takes is a verse and a chorus before MAMADEAR feels like a lifelong friend. This may be why they were named Rolling Stone’s “Best Up-and-Comer” at 2014's CMA Fest, or how they landed a major hookup with Creative Arts Agency.  It may also be why a Southwest Airlines flight crew once had them sing “Country Roads” over the loudspeaker to 37 rows of delighted travelers. Their sound is contagious and breeds southern comfort nostalgia—no matter how far you may be from your own front porch.

MAMADEAR's tunes remind us of all the good things in life. Like the cardboard pop on a can of biscuits, like the glide of the cork from a bottle of Woodford, or the twang of a B7 chord on a vintage Gibson guitar. Like everything you’d ever need is right beside you, exactly where it belongs. Kelly, Dan, and Parker are doing something different with their music. With the sound of stadium artists and the heart of the Bluebird, MAMADEAR is taking country music to a place anyone can call home.

So leave your boots on the porch and stay a while.

“MAMADEAR delivers a traditional country song with a punky sentiment with “Lost Cause.” From its cool twangy intro to its defiant message this catchy tune has great vocals and an upbeat groove.”

- PARADE.COM

“Gorgeous melody & superb harmonies from this new triO. Think Lady A, think Sugarland. Yes, worthy of those comparisons. Destined for big things - get on board early!!!”

- LYRIC MAGAZINE

“Consisting of Parker & Kelly Bradway and Dan Wilson, MAMADEAR is one of our favorite new groups. Each member brings something different vocally and musically as they all sing and play, yet their harmonies blend as if they are fused together.”
