Caylee Hammack Shares Her “Family Tree”

 Capitol Records’ Caylee Hammack makes a bold introduction with“Family Tree,” her debut single for Capitol Nashville, available at radio now. Hammack co-wrote and co-produced the”high-spirited, rollicking” (Variety)track that expertly ties together her fiery attitude and distinct vocals. Recently highlighted as one of 2019’s artists to watch by outlets such as The Bobby Bones Show and HITS Magazine and with over two million streams just weeks after introducing the song to fans, Hammack is quickly becoming one of Nashville’s most buzz-worthy new artists among fans, radio and critics with Billboard spotlighting her in a new profile out now.

The summer is heating up for Hammack as she claims upcoming slots with both Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne on their tours and will appear at some of country music’s biggest festivals including Tortuga, Country LakeShake, Faster Horses Festival and more. 

Caylee Hammack constantly felt like a self-described “hippie in a hillbilly town.” “I used to pray every night as a kid, ‘God, just please make me different. Don’t make me like everyone else,’” she remembers. Hammack is indeed refreshingly different. She’s a country expressionist, a grungy firebrand and a spiritual seeker. And at only 24, she has already packed a full life into just a few years, using fake IDs to get gigs around South Georgia, turning down a college scholarship for a love that burned out just a few months later, sleeping in her car when she arrived in Nashville and then losing her home in an electrical fire. “My dad has always said that the most beautiful and strongest things are forged in the fire,” she says. “Iron is nothing until you work it in a fire. Glass cannot be blown without intense heat. You can’t make anything beautiful or strong without a little heat.” Tested by the fire, Caylee Hammack has been molded into an artist with incredible depth and a powerhouse voice that can effortlessly veer from fiery and demanding to quiet and vulnerable. Her life experience and relentless curiosity have coalesced into a country cocktail that’s rooted in tradition but expands with shards of modern pop and rock. Her self-penned songs tug on her own life story – bad decisions, secret affairs, broken hearts, a quirky family lineage – as she invariably turns the lemons of her daring life into sonic lemonade.
