Caylee Hammack Releases Autobiographical Song From New Album

Caylee Hammack has released a new song from her upcoming debut album called “Forged In The Fire.” She co-wrote the autobiographical track about her house burning down while she was away on a songwriting retreat losing just about everything, except for a few song-inspiring pieces such as her grandmother’s quilt. “Forged In The Fire” is featured on Caylee's If It Wasn't For You album due out on Friday (August 14th).

She said, “My father used to tell me that all of the strongest and most beautiful things are forged in fire. Iron is weak until you work it in fire. Glass can’t be blown without immense heat. I grew up with this saying as a motto handed down when I needed reminding and it was rarely thought of; until I had an electrical fire at my home in 2017. I lost so much, but gained so much more. I learned that material things don’t matter. The people who surrounded me and helped me find the salvageable pieces loved me and I wasn’t alone through the hardship. Life was dark at the time, but the love I felt around me was deep. God’s seen me through, and also given me some stories to tell. What more could I ask for?”

Caylee co-wrote and co-produced every track on the 13-song collection, which includes guest appearances by Reba, Ashley McBryde and Tenille Townes.
