Hammack exclusively premieres music video for the song with CMT
Capitol Nashville’s Caylee Hammack is offering fans a look into her recently-announced upcoming debut record, releasing her scorching new song “Redhead” that is “as badass and unique as a fiery head of hair” (Rolling Stone), featuring superstar Reba McEntire. Co-written by Hammack with Natalie Hemby and Trent Dabbs, the song details the clothes line, tightrope and dare devil high hopes childhood of the brazen “Redhead” with an assist from fellow flame-haired vocalist Reba.
Hammack also premiered a music video for the track today exclusively with CMT, CMT Music and CMT.com. Directed by Justin Clough, the video filled with personality, confidence and persuasion takes viewers back to a little redhead’s childhood, living life in a double-wide trailer as her parents attempt to handle their daughter’s fervor. Hammack’s dynamic performance revels in the nostalgia.
“This song was inspired by an older cousin of mine with fiery red hair,” shares Hammack. “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!”
Hammack is all about the truth, the complete, whole unvarnished truth. That truth stains If It Wasn’t For You, her major label debut, with equal doses joy, courage and enough detail to break an axle. Available on August 14th, Hammack announced the upcoming and anticipated debut release this week, with Hammack co-writing and co-producing every track on the 13 song collection.
