"Mama He's Crazy" is a song written by Kenny O'Dell, and originally recorded by American country music duo The Judds. It was released in April 1984 as the second single from their debut January 1984 extended play, Wynonna & Naomi. The song was re-released on their full-length 1984 debut album, Why Not Me. The song was their second hit and the first of fourteen number ones. The single went to number one for one week and spent a total of fourteen weeks on the country chart.[1] It was only the second country number one sung by a female duo ever; previously only The Davis Sisters featuring Skeeter Davis had made it to number one on the country chart in 1953 with their song "I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know".[2].
