Kendra Kay’s debut album Homegrown Heart is out now! The album consists of ten songs including the title track, “Homegrown Heart.”
“I am so excited for this next chapter. It has been a long time coming,” said Kay.
Kendra started recording the music for Homegrown Heart in 2019, so some of the songs don’t feel new to her since she has had them ready to go for so long.
“I am so excited to get this body of music out. It is really a defining moment for me in my career,” she said.
Over the past two years, Kendra had time to figure out who she is as an artist and was able to piece together the right songs to show the world what she is all about with her debut album.
The album is filled with many talented songwriters and collaborators including, Meghan Patrick, Maren Morris, Ryan Hurd, Carly Pearce, Madeline Merlo, and many more.
Kendra released the title track, “Homegrown Heart” back in the fall of 2021.
“The song, ‘Homegrown Heart’ is who I am and my roots on the farm. I have always kept true to who I am and I think that is something that sets me a part in the industry because I am authentically country,” said Kay.
She wanted to make sure she showed that she is proud of where she came from in her debut album.
“Homegrown Heart is the meaning of me being me,” she said.
The song, “Scars like Mine” stands out for Kendra on the album. The song is about finding someone who loves you for who you are and the scars you have.
“I am excited about all of the songs and they all are special to me, which is why they all made the debut album,” said Kay.
Homegrown Heart holds a strong storytelling aspect with each song telling its own individual story.
Every song shares a piece of who she is and go through the motions she has been through in the past few years.
“Every song tells a little bit about the person that I am and what I have been through.”
