"My mom is the greatest," the "Every Little Thing" singer tells PEOPLE. "She's my best friend, my biggest supporter & the one I go to when I need the truth.

When I could no longer bear the weight of my mistakes and their consequences, she would lift me up and push me foward," the "We Weren't Crazy" artist tells PEOPLE.
