• CAYLEE HAMMACK MAKES HER NATIONAL TV DEBUT ON TODAY PERFORMING HER BREAKOUT SINGLE “FAMILY TREE.”

    Caylee Hammack made her powerful national TV debut on TODAY this morning (5/29), performing her breakout single “Family Tree” live. Available to watch below, the striking performance showcased Hammack’s vocal chops on the track that was co-written and co-produced by Hammack and was the most-added debut song by a female artist upon impact at Country radio in over three years.

    Hammack will hit the road with Brothers Osborne this weekend, with shows slated in Mashantucket, CT (6/1) and Hampton, NH (6/2). For a full list of upcoming tour dates visit cayleehammack.com.

    Background on Caylee Hammack: 
    Caylee Hammack constantly felt like a self-described “hippie in a hillbilly town” in her tiny hometown of Ellaville, Georgia. “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. And at only 25, 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. Notching spots on upcoming tour slots, fans can catch Hammack on the road with Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and can be seen at country music’s biggest festivals including CMA Music Festival, Country LakeShake, Faster Horses Festival and more. Hammack has also been the noted as an “Artist To Watch” by outlets such as The Bobby Bones Show, Rolling Stone and HITS Magazine for her “voice to move mountains” alongside her “clever story telling that keeps it all in motion” (Rolling Stone).

  • CAYLEE HAMMACK HIGHLIGHTS INFLUENCES ON DYNAMIC NEW TRACK “JUST FRIENDS” AVAILABLE TODAY.

    Caylee Hammack is sharing more music with fans today, releasing the head-turning new track “Just Friends,” available to listen here. Co-written by Hammack with Mikey Reaves and Aaron Raitiere, the song manages to channel the tones of country icons Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton in the fluttery first 29 seconds. Co-produced by Hammack, that open leads into a guitar-driven core that pays homage to ‘90s-era alternative tracks by Everclear and Weezer. In the end, Hammack moves in yet another direction, closing with rich piano chording that comes direct from a gospel playbook. “Just Friends” tells listeners much of what they need to know about Hammack. She is all of those things – the country expressionist, the grungy firebrand, the spiritual seeker – pulled together in an intoxicating, yet cohesive way.

    “We sat in the studio that day, bouncing between two extremely different melodic ideas I had started about the same theme the day before; inspired by the aftermath of a breakup I had recently gone through,” explains Caylee. “We finally decided to attempt to tell both sides of the emotional rollercoaster I was on by intertwining the two melodies into one song. I loved the idea of the clear juxtaposition between the two and how this song gave us a moment to tip our hats to the older country that raised us and the 90’s alternative music we all found solace in when we were teenagers.”

    “It’s one of my favorites to perform live,” she says, “I love to start crooning the opening lines at shows and watching people start to slowly sway, then snap back into focus when the electric guitars start screaming on the second verse. It shows both sides of my personality in a few minutes, which is cathartic for me.”

    Hear more about the song from Hammack here.

    The Ellaville, Georgia native is set to make her National TV debut on TODAY on May 29th where she will perform her “high-spirited” (Variety) single “Family Tree.” Also co-written and co-produced by Hammack, it was the most-added debut song by a female artist upon impact at Country radio in over three years. Check out the video below.

    Download

    Caylee Hammack (Just Friends) OC: …sound. :22
    “I love the idea of the juxtaposition of the very soft, kind of nod towards older country in the beginning of that song, showing a little bit more of the heartbreak and the vulnerability of going through a breakup. And then being able to get into the angst and the anger behind that breakup and being able to use that to fuel more of an Everclear-esque sound.”

    Caylee Hammack (Just Friends) OC: …every time. :33
    “I feel like women especially relate to this song because all of us have found a really good man and maybe a great friend, but was really bad at being a boyfriend and just didn’t really get the idea of that. This song is kind of going through all that frustration and the anger of, ‘I should’ve listened to my mom.’ My mom, for some reason, knew you were wrong for me, but I didn’t listen to her. I listened to my heart, and I listened to you. And I feel like it really connects with women, because all of us have went through a situation like this, and it’s frustrating every time.”

  • MOTHER’S DAY 2019 AUDIO

    Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 12th, and some of your favorite country artists are celebrating the mothers in their lives this weekend. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.

    Brandon Lay (Mother’s Day) OC: …comes from her. :2
    “She works harder than anybody I’ve ever seen. She can outwork most 20-year-olds in the yard still. She grew up on a farm, and I think a lot of that just bulldog it and get it done attitude, I probably get from her. She’ll go from sunup to sundown, and she doesn’t complain, and that’s just so rare. I feel like the work ethic, as far as grind it out and get it done, that toughness comes from her.”

    Audio / Caylee Hammack describes the qualities she most admires in her mother.

    Download

    Caylee Hammack (Mother’s Day) 1 OC: …love fully. :53
    “I love that my Mom is a no-nonsense woman. I love that she always speaks her mind and she’s super stubborn, because she handed it down to me and it’s come in handy, to be honest. She’s a great cook. I wish I was half the cook that she is. She’s obsessive about Tupperware and plates, which I used to hate, but now as an adult whenever I break a dish or something, I just call her, and I know that I have one on standby. I love that she loves random things so that I can squirrel them away and take them to Nashville sometimes. And I love that she loves big. She either gives all of her heart or nothing at all; she always gives all of her heart. She loves, you know, she has a bleeding heart, and I think that’s just one of the most beautiful traits in the world is to love fully.”

    Carrie Underwood (having 2 boys) OC: …little brother. :49
    “It’s kind of crazy to think, sometimes I’ll literally look at my husband and be like, ‘We have two sons. We have two kids. We’ve been married for almost nine years. We have two children. We live on a farm.’ Like it’s just weird to think how life turns out sometimes. Life is very different with two. We kind of got out of that baby stage with Isaiah. He’s much more self-efficient, and he can brush his own teeth and put his own clothes on, and he’s making decisions for himself, and then we start all over with the little squishy one again. It’s just kind of crazy. You forget how hard it is, to be honest, but you just figure your way through it. I am so blessed to have Isaiah who is super helpful and super sweet, and he loves his little brother.”

    “We don’t really have like any Mother’s Day traditions. I feel like I remember me and Dad making breakfast for Mom like once as a kid. I’m pretty sure we just made a giant mess in the kitchen and we never did that again, so. Being on the other side of things, I obviously don’t expect anything from my three-year-old, but my husband’s really good at getting presents from quote unquote Isaiah. It’s really sweet, because he likes to bring me things. He’s such a sweet little guy, and anytime he’s outside, he’ll pick me flowers and things. So, I’m like, ‘You’re learning. You’ve already got me wrapped around your finger, and then you do stuff like that, and it’s even more so.’”

And her undying devotion to her kids – to my sister and I – always believing in us a million percent, always backing us up a million percent and helping us navigate life and navigate our dreams and helping us go towards that goal – those are some of the qualities that I hope to have some day as a mother, you know? And I’m so grateful I have THE best mom in the WORLD!”

    “I think that’s the main reason I am how I am…an innate fear of disappointing my mom.  My mom’s not even alive, and I have a fear of her looking down from heaven and going, ‘Man I’m just disappointed in my son.’ She could have said anything in the world to me, but if she would have said, ‘Son, you just disappointed me,’ That would have killed me. It would have killed me.”

A lot of great memories of her, but probably one of my favorite memories, I was a young kid, probably eight or nine, and she was in the kitchen cooking and listening to the gospel station and Shirley Caesar’s ‘No Charge’ came on and she was singing ‘No Charge.’ I just remember I ran into our living room which was adjoined to our kitchen and I just sat there and I just listened to her sing that song, and I remember thinking, ‘Wow! What an amazing voice.’ That’s just always a memory I’ve always had, and that song still to this day when I hear it just moves me because that was my mom’s song.”

    Eric Church (Mother’s Day) OC: …as a man. :57
    “My mom, even though my dad won’t like this, my mom is by far the toughest person that I’ve met. She’s tough. One of those people that’s been through a lot in her life, adversity wise and never complains, always really resilient with anything that’s happened to her. And it’s just that attitude, the positive attitude, regardless of what has happened that I think is the one thing that I got from her. With career, she’s always been a person that’s been really positive through times that I couldn’t find a positive streak, [laughs] and she was always really positive, and very much believes in tough it out, keep working hard, and that’s her motto with stuff like that. I’ve always been impressed with that stuff. Then musically, she’s where I get my talent from, musically. She sings great, always has, her mom sang great. I owe my musical chops to her. And she still sings some. So, career-wise, I owe her everything. And just in life-wise she’s given me a lot of the qualities that it has taken for me to get me where I am. Not only as a musician, but as a man.”

She’s always been like that, and she’s a great mother. She’s always proud, and she’s always there supporting and being a great mom. She’s just a good human being. There’s not one mean bone in her body. And she cries about every time I talk to her. She always worries about me. I have to tell her, ‘Stop worrying about me.’”

I don’t know anything about raising kids and Nic does, and that comes in extremely, um, it’s really made for an experience I wouldn’t have had without that. Her patience, her recognizing them as people and not just little kids is really extraordinary. Her attention to honoring their feelings and listening to them right from day one – really being attentive to that is not how I was raised at all, so it’s really beautiful to see.”

I wasn’t ever sure that I would be, but I am now, and it’s the greatest gift of my life. And as I’m a mother now, I see what my mother gave up and her sacrifices and her love and how she made us the most important thing in her life, and that’s what I strive to do for my little girl. It’s the most important job I have, and it’s the most responsibility that I have, and I try to live up to a great example that I had for my mother.”

It’s Mother’s Day, her birthday and the weather was going to be beautiful, so I planned this awesome surprise where we would drive first – she wouldn’t know where we were going, and then we ended up going canoeing down the Harpeth River [located south of Nashville], and it was so fun.”

    MADDIE: “She is so good at balancing is what I’m trying to say. My Mom is such a great balancer, but as I’m coming into our adulthood, and all that kind of stuff, she’s very conscious about when I’m trying to be perfect and have everything in order with everything. And she’s like, you can’t. You can’t do that. Life, you have to figure out how you’re going to deal with the curveballs that are thrown out you. Are you going to catch them and whine out about it or are you going to catch them and move on? Like you have to just go with what’s thrown at you. And my Dad’s been a really, really good supporter on just not letting life’s trials bring you down and letting them just be learning tools and all of that. But, most of the time, a Mama hug can really fix anything.” TAE: “Ahh…it’s the best.” MADDIE: “If my Mom hugs me while I’m crying, everything’s okay. There’s just something about it. I’m 23, grown, but, my Mom, if she hugs me, everything’s okay.”

  • CAYLEE HAMMACK GIVES SOME BEHIND-THE-SCENES DETAILS OF THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “FAMILY TREE.”

    Caylee Hammack follows the debut music video for “Family Tree” with a behind-the-scenes look at how its autobiographical lyrics were brought to life. With “one of the wildest life stories of any rising artist” (CMT), “Behind the Family Tree” shares an inside peek of personal tokens throughout each scene and reveals real-life family and friends who make special appearances. Following the release of the music video last week, Hammack’s new single introducing her “soulful vocals and descriptive lyrics” (Billboard) was the most added debut at Country radio by a female artist in over three years.

    “I actually brought in a bunch of family and friends for my first video,” shared Hammack. “You’ll meet my mama who really is a Tupperware addict and my sister Mollie, the whole reason this song was written. She was sneaking out to smoke cigarettes, so I started writing about it. I don’t think I’d ever seen my dad’s legs before this video, but he loved being in it. He broke that lawn chair afterwards dancing in it! My friends, my sound-wizard producer Mikey, my dog and my grandma’s quilt that survived my house fire all reveal a little bit more about me. Welcome to our ‘family tree.’”

    Hammack’s ferociously fun debut video was directed by Dano Cerny (Elle King, The Chainsmokers, The Roots) as the “high-spirited, pleased-to-meet-you” (Varietysinger/songwriter proves “there is no doubt she’s born for a life in music” (CMT). “Family Tree” was co-written and co-produced by Hammack. Notching spots on upcoming tour slots, fans can catch Hammack on the road with Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and Brothers Osborne and can be seen at country music’s biggest festivals including CMA Music Festival, Country LakeShakeiHeartCountry Festival, Faster Horses Festival and more. Hammack has also been the noted as an “Artist To Watch” by outlets such as The Bobby Bones ShowRolling Stone and HITS Magazine for her “voice to move mountains” alongside her “clever story telling that keeps it all in motion” (Rolling Stone).

    Background On Caylee Hammack
    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.

    Caylee Hammack (Family Tree video) OC: …world to me. :37
    “If you’ve ever wrangled monkeys, that’s pretty much the gist of getting ‘Family Tree’ together because I brought in a bunch of my family members, I brought a bunch of my friends, I brought my dog in, we had a little cast because some of the people couldn’t come in to play the roles. It was a wild day on set, but I think it all came together. Being able to bring my family in that video means the world to me, because ‘Family Tree’ is the introductory course into my music, you know? It’s the appetizer of my tunes, and being able to start that off very strong with all of my family surrounding me, means the world to me.”

    Audio / Caylee Hammack talks about the role her mother had in the video for “Family Tree,” and the fact she brought her own props to the set.

    “It was really funny, ‘cause we got there (to the set) and my mom walked up and the crew was starting to build this very big, giant mountain of Tupperware that she knocks over in the chorus in the video. And she walked up to it and she’s looking around at it and she goes, ‘I hope you all know this is not real Tupperware, but don’t worry, I brought my own.’ And she went back to her Suburban and she drove up with a buttload of Tupperware for this video, because she said, ‘I just didn’t know if they’d have it.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they didn’t, so you thought ahead.’ I get my overprepping from my mother.”
