Regarding writing the song, Ulisse explains, “’Where the Mountain Lillies Grow’ is a true story about my husband’s great uncle, Carson Stanley, and his most beloved wife, Ella Rose. I am blessed to have known them both and to have actually had the honor to sing a few mountain songs with Ella Rose. When I shared this love story with ‘The Mighty Cord,’ Larry Cordle, that was it! Our pens never stopped until the mountain lilies bloomed.”
