"I'm so excited to be releasing this single "Mama's Favorite Song." The story behind this song is a little different from my others. This song was written by Stan Ward in honor of his mother. I met him through working with Lane Frost Brand. I spent countless hours talking to him and his family on the phone learning about the kind of person his mother was and her love for Christ. Being a Christian myself, I feel honored to share her heart by releasing my first faith-based song. I hope you all love this song as much as I do," shares Ava.
