Artist Feature: Caylee Hammack
Raised Rowdy Contributor
Growing up, Ellaville, Georgia native Caylee Hammack constantly felt like a “hippie in a hillbilly town”. And as someone who grew up and went to high school in that very town, I completely relate. Perhaps it has been that mindset that has molded Caylee into the artist that she is today.
At the young age of 13, Caylee began playing smoky bars around the Southeast, finally making the move to Nashville six years later. As it is for any artist, the road to chasing dreams has been hard. From sleeping in her car upon her arrival to Music City, to working a full time job and singing on Broadway at night to pay the bills, Caylee has persevered and never given up on her journey.
Now at age 24, Caylee has won the prestigious ASCAP Sammy Chan award, signed with Universal Music Group Nashville, and has been featured in Bobby Bones’ Class of 2019 as a notable up and coming artist. With recent recognition of this nature, it is so apparent that Caylee is making waves as a new female artist in country music.
Her most recent single release, “Family Tree” just reaffirms those notions. Not only does Caylee bring it vocally with her unique sound, she also co-wrote and co-produced the track.
So take a listen and take note that this girl is about to blow up in 2019!!
