is a song that was inspired by The Orchard's time spent in the Southern
States in the spring of 2011. Showcasing their writing abilities, the
duo, Kasha Anne and Mitch Smith, feel the song is representative of
their own unique sound.
This song gives a strong sense of the band's musical influences with heavy guitars and strong rhythm, with intense lyrical ideas, and strong vocals. “Southern Ground” is the second single and title track from their upcoming album produced by CCMA Award winner Bart McKay, scheduled for release this summer.
