Thomas Rhett at the iHeartRadio Theater in New York City on September 28^ 2015.

Thomas Rhett and Morgan Wallen hit No. 1 on country radio with “Mamaw’s House,” marking Rhett’s 22nd No. 1 at country radio, and Wallen’s 12th. “Mamaw’s House” appears on Rhett’s retrospective 20 NUMBER ONES collection, honoring the achievement of earning 20 No. 1 hits in just 10 years.

Rhett has worked with Wallen before, and is listed as a co-writer on several tracks on Wallen’s record-breaking sophomore project, Dangerous: The Double Album, including “Whiskey’d My Way” and “Your Bartender.” He previously shared of ‘Mamaw’s House’ that the song “wasn’t even supposed to be a single, and now it’s becoming a hit,” and was certain that the collaboration “didn’t have a chance.” Rhett added, “maybe there were too many collaborations, but it seems there can’t be too many collaborations. Not with Morgan.”

Rhett also shared how the song came together over a Zoom call in 2020: “Morgan and I wrote this song in 2020 on Zoom. Halfway through the session, Morgan got a call from his grandmother. After that, we decided to write a song about our grandmothers. The fact that we can write a song about our grandmothers, and it could be a No. 1 is pretty awesome. The song describes my grandmothers and Morgan’s as well – we wanted to describe a small town piece of paradise. Growing up, I can remember going to both of my grandmothers’ houses in South Georgia. I learned so many life lessons there about hard work, manners, and respect. This song really hits home for me and I hope everyone feels the same.”

Wallen added: “Many times in the past, I’ve been open and honest about the love I have for my Mamaw Boots“It was only a matter of time before a song was inspired by her. I dedicate this one to not only her, but to my living grandmothers as well. I hope they know what a big part they’ve all played in shaping my life. TR had a similar experience growing up, so I’m really glad we got to write and record this song together. Hope y’all enjoy it.”
