"Hot Mama" is a song written by Tom Shapiro and Casey Beathard, and recorded by American country music singer Trace Adkins. It was released in September 2003 as the lead single from his album Comin' On Strong. The song peaked at number 5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart, giving Adkins his seventh Top 10 single on that chart. It also peaked at number 51 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.


In "Hot Mama," the male narrator addresses his lover, telling her that he enjoys her body the way that it is.

The song can be heard in the King of the Hill episode, "The Redneck on Rainey Street", in which Adkins voices the character Elvin Mackelston.

Critical reception[edit]

Deborah Evans Price, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, calling a "thumpin' ode to appreciation of one's good ole gal, particularly when sleeping kids provide opportunity." She goes on to say that Adkins "wraps his muscular baritone around a bold production and a lyric heavy on domestic-life testosterone."[1] William Ruhlmann of Allmusic gave the song a favorable review, saying that it "has a frisky appeal and, with its erotically charged tag line, 'You wanna?' a novelty quality[.]"[2]
