Until Scotty McCreery's life turned upside down after winning the tenth season of American Idol, he'd spent all his life in the North Carolina town of Garner. He said that this Neil Thrasher, Casey Beathard and Tony Martin penned song speaks to him about "staying grounded." Explained Scotty: "When I was younger, everybody said, 'I can't wait to get out of my hometown and go to college 500 miles away so I don't have to see anybody again.' It talks about getting back home and chatting with Mama and how you would do anything to get back home. It's a fun song about staying grounded and not forgetting where you came from, and no matter where you go, it all comes back around.
I always loved my hometown, but of course, everybody grows up saying they can't wait to get out of there and go experience life outside of the little bubble they've been in. Now that I have been away for so long and seen what life is like out here, I can't wait to get back and see family and friends that I have missed for so long. What I would give to take another English test in class! Like the song says, I can't wait to get my feet back on the ground in Garner, N.C."
