During Danielle Bradbery's support show on the Birmingham, Alabama leg of Miranda Lambert's Certified Platinum Tour
, she surprised fans with the introduction of new music. This was one of the songs that the Texas native premiered. "That one I wrote in LA and we kind of just brainstormed and just talked about life," Bradbery told Sounds Like Nashville
. "What the song really is about is not a Mom, and that is what a lot of people are assuming. And I figured they would."
"But it's really about life and opportunities and the negative people have around them all in one," she continued. "We decided to call it 'Mama Was A Liar' and kind of step way out of the box. If people have an open mind then they'll know what it means. It's a really deep and really cool song so I'm excited for everybody to hear it."
