From just that one photo I would guess it is a fig tree. Fig leaves come in various and assorted shapes.

The leaf veining suggests Mulberry to me.

I'm leaning towards Mulberry also. Red Mulberry (Morus rubra) is a Kentucky native while White Mulberry (Morus alba) a non-native but also found in Ky:
