Florida Georgia Line’s ‘God, Your Mama and Me’ Inspires Cancer Sufferer

Though every Florida Georgia Line tune may not dive into a deep reflective journey, the duo’s songs strike chords with plenty of listeners, and one particular cancer sufferer cites a FGL hit as getting her “through some things.”

In a recent interview with People, FGL’s Brian Kelley shared a story about meeting a woman with cancer who holds strong feelings about the duo’s “God, Your Mama, and Me,” a country collaboration with pop icons the Backstreet Boys.

“She was in the hospital and ‘God, Your Mama, and Me’ came on,” Kelley explains. “That day she started bawling and said, ‘Your music is human, it’s spiritual and when that song came on it helped me get through some things I was going through. That’s about as real as it gets. … When someone has something like that to tell you, I think it’s very powerful and it’s important. That’s why we do what we do.”

Written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson, “God, Your Mama and Me” is a wrinkle-free love jam that showcases both FGL’s and BSB’s vulnerability. The lyrics are straightforward and accompanied by a sweet chorus melody that brings fans back to the boy band days.

“My love is / Never gonna run dry / Never gonna come up empty / Now until the day I die, unconditionally / You know I’m always gonna be here for ya / No one’s ever gonna love you more than / God, your mama, and me.”

As part of FGL’s Smooth Tour with Nelly and Chris Lane, the Backstreet Boys will also join Florida Georgia Line for shows in Boston on July 7, Minneapolis on July 29 and Chicago on Aug. 12.
