Caylee Hammack shared a hot new track, “Redhead,” from her upcoming major-label debut album, If It Wasn’t For You, which drops on Aug. 14.
Penned by Caylee, Trent Dabbs and Natalie Hemby, “Redhead” features vocal from country music’s most famous redhead, Reba McEntire.
“This song was inspired by an older cousin of mine with fiery red hair,” says Caylee. “You don’t hear about redheads very much in songs, so I simply wanted to write one for her and all the redheads in my family. Then, Reba came in the studio and transformed this song. She helped me create an anthem for all redheads. Whether you get it naturally or find it in a bottle, this is for the firecrackers!”
Caylee, who was named to CMT’s 2020 Next Women of Country class, co-wrote and co-produced every song on the 13-track album. Caylee is currently nominated for two ACM Awards: New Female Artist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “Fooled Around and Fell in Love.”
