Allie Colleen is sharing more new music with fans with the release of a brand new, summer-ready single, “Ain’t The Only Hell (My Momma Raised).”

The feel-good track celebrates moms everywhere and highlights the women they were before becoming mothers. With a sound reminiscent of ’90s country and lyrics that perfectly paint a picture in listeners’ minds, “Ain’t The Only Hell (My Momma Raised)” is sure to be a hit among Colleen’s growing fanbase.

The singer/songwriter co-wrote the song alongside Karleen Watt and was inspired by an old photograph that left Colleen and Watt pondering what their moms were like before they raised children.

“This song goes out to all the moms, to all the women who put their hell-raising lives on hold to raise their babies,” Colleen shared in a statement. “My mom(s) are my greatest role models. I am who I am because of who they are.”

The mom(s) she is referring to are her mother, Sandy Mahl, and her bonus mom, Trisha Yearwood.

As the daughter of Garth Brooks, Colleen grew up in a home full of music. She was exposed to country music at a young age and started writing songs when she was just eight years old. By the time she was in eighth grade, she knew music was her calling.

“I wanted to go to Belmont University. I didn’t look anywhere else,” she previously explained to Country Now. “I knew I needed to be in Nashville to pursue what I wanted to do.”
