I’m so proud of where I came from. I have the state of Kentucky tattooed on my wrist, and my album is dedicated to my grandparents. The older you get, the more you identify with the place where you’re from. And maybe you took it for granted, maybe you moved away like I did. Again, the ladies I really idolize — Dolly (Parton), for instance — I want to do what she did for Sevierville, Tennessee, or what Carrie did for Oklahoma. I want to represent Kentucky in the same way. I wouldn’t be the artist I am without being where I’m from. I kind of want to take people home with me.”

Meaning: She got this tattoo inked in October 2020 after filing for divorce from Michael Ray in June 2020. In an interview, she said,
Wildflowers are the first flowers that sprout after a long winter. To me, they symbolize that this didn’t kill me. I certainly have a stronger sense of knowing God has affirmed me. No one would ever believe the ways he’s affirmed me that I’m walking in the right direction. I’m sure that anybody who’s ever gone through this goes through different emotions. I’ve been sad. I’ve been angry. I’ve been relieved. I try to not be mad at myself. I try to not be mad at him. I think that holding grudges or staying mad only hurts you, and it’s just not healthy. So, I try to remind myself of that. And sure, I have days where I’m so mad at myself for just not knowing this was how it was all going to end up for me. My gosh, if I could go back, sure. But it’s a part of my story, and that’s okay.”
