In a promo on Twitter, Ballerini can be seen walking around Central High School’s campus in Knoxville. The singer attended the school before moving to Nashville at the age of 15.

In an interview with Time, she says the song is about going back to your hometown and realizing that while you may have changed, other things are still the same.

“Part of that was really bitter, and part of that was really sweet,” said Ballerini to Time. “I think it was just one of those songs where I realized that I’d¬†changed a lot.”

Ballerini is nominated for the Country Music Awards’ Female Vocalist of the Year. The show will air Nov. 8 on WATE 6 On Your Side.
