Kolby's upbringing serves as the backdrop for his music, infusing each lyric with a welcomed sense of authenticity. With "Mama," he delves into the complexities of relationships tainted by alcoholism, painting a vivid portrait of the struggle and pain that accompanies such experiences.

Through his music, Kolby pays homage to the unwavering strength of maternal figures, be it a mother or a significant other, who serve as beacons of light in times of darkness.

"Just knowing that having your mom, which could be your actual mom or could be your girl, it could be one of those solid rocks to lean on when you're onto a thing," Cooper reflected.

But it's not just the earnest lyrics that set "Mama" apart; it's Kolby's unmistakable voice, raw and unfiltered, that truly captivates listeners.
