“This song (‘Ground I Grew Up On’) reminded me of my home when I was in California,” Kennedy said. “This song helped me a lot. I listened to it over and over again. It turns out that Brandon Kinney was one of the main authors of this song. I got to meet him and write a song with him when I was went to Nashville. “
