Leith Ross says of "Tommy":
"My grandpa was a wonderful man, and the kind of musician who couldn't read sheet music to save his life but played five instruments and could follow you on any song. He inspires me and when things are hard I think of him, and it helps. I often remember him starting a song on his mandolin and my grandma would say to him, 'Oh Tommy I love that one. Play it for the kids, and Leith, you should learn so you can play it for your kids.' So I would sing along.
This song honors a lovely man and the woman who loved him most."
