当她的兄弟演奏Southern Rock和她的妹妹Britney Spears的歌曲时，她自己发现了乡村风格，并以Dixie Chicks和SHeDAISY为早期灵感。

经过大约两年的演奏和写歌，她被罗伯特·菲尔哈特（Robert Filhart ）引入纳什维尔环球音乐出版集团（Nashville），在那里她开始担任职员作家。在作家撤退期间，她发现自己在纳什维尔的房子因电火烧毁，烧毁了她约70％的财产。特妮尔·汤斯（Tenille Townes）和她一起静修时，在这段时间里帮助了她，这就是他们友谊的开始。她已与Red Light Management签约，并由Mary Hilliard Harrington管理。在2018年，她可以与国会大厦纳什维尔签署唱片合约。

凯莉（Caylee）仍在与贾里德·斯科特（Jared Scott）一起做女作家时写了《小城镇伪君子》，讲述与男友的分手，骗了她，最终把她带到了纳什维尔。后来她发现他住在一个双宽预告片中，进入了歌曲的最后一节。这首歌于2020年2月21日正式发行。她原定于2020年为Reba McEntire和Luke Bryan 开放，但COVID-19大流行使她的欧洲巡演缩短了时间，因此Reba的开幕演出被推迟了。离开了乐手和她的乐队，没有收入。在这段时间内，他们开始提供美化服务，以弥补收入损失。凯莉（Caylee）在机场等候飞机时，得知了她首次获得2020年ACM年度最佳新女艺术家ACM提名。她与阿什莉•麦克布莱德（Ashley McBryde）一起在2020年4月7日主持了一个名为CMT下一个国家乡村妇女上线的Facebook活动，并于5月8 日在Outdoor Channel的《Country Outdoors LIVE》特别节目中露面。她在6月24日宣布她的首张专辑《如果不是为了你》将于八月下旬发行，将包含13首歌曲。她共同撰写了其中的12本书，并独自撰写。专辑与Reba McEntire，Ashley McBryde和Tenille Townes进行二重唱。
Caylee Anna Hammack (born March 17, 1994) is an American country singer and songwriter. She is signed to Capitol Records Nashville and has released four singles and will release her debut album on August 14, 2020.
Caylee started playing music at age 13 which helped her to feel different in her hometown where she never felt like she belonged anywhere. While not getting much of a music education or vocal lessons, she self-taught by listening and singing songs on the country radio. The first time she had to turn down potential scholarships (which were tennis scholarships) was after a surgery to remove a tumor as a fiften-year-old. This was also the first time she wrote her own song called “Addictive” about the pain pills she had to take after the surgery.
While her brother played Southern rock and her sister Britney Spears songs, she discovered the country genre for herself and counts Dixie Chicks and the SHeDAISY as her early inspiration.
Her first ticket to Nashville was her full music scholarship to Belmont University at age 18 which she ended up declining because her boyfriend persuaded her to stay in Ellaville with him. After the two broke up, she started to follow her interest in music again and a call from Luke Bryan gave her the final motivation to move to Nashville. She moved at the end of 2013 with about 1000$ of savings, a high school diploma, her clothes in trash bags, and playing Kacey Musgraves debut album for the seven-hour drive. She soon found herself sleeping in her car after spending the money she came with. With the help of a fake ID she could enter the music venues and bars and after asking a bass player at the Honky Tonk Central on Broadway she started to sing there weekly, covering songs. Before her signing an official recording contract she performed several original songs including “Redhead”.
After about two years of playing and writing songs, she was introduced to Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville by Robert Filhart where she started as a staff writer. During a writers’ retreat she found out that her house in Nashville burned down due to an electrical fire that destroyed about 70 percent of her belongings. Tenille Townes was at the retreat with her and helped her during this time which was the start of their friendship. She’s signed to Red Light Management and is managed by Mary Hilliard Harrington. In 2018 she could sign a recording contract with Capitol Nashville.
She was featured as an emerging country artist by Billboard and as a new country artist you need to know by Rolling Stone and calls Kacey Musgraves, David Bowie, Tom Waits her influences in her adult life. In 2019 she would open for Lanco, Dierks Bentley, Trisha Yearwood, and Miranda Lambert. Her debut song “Family Tree” was released on January 18, 2019 and was the most-added debut song by a female artist at country radio in the last three years. Later, on May 29 she would perform the song on the Today show in her national television debut. Her upcoming album will make her debut as a producer for which she got help from fellow producer Mikey Reeves.
Caylee wrote “Small Town Hypocrite” while still being a staff writer together with Jared Scott about the breakup with her boyfriend that cheated on her and which eventually brought her to Nashville. Later she found out that he lived in a double-wide trailer, which made its way into the song’s final verse. The song was officially released on February 21, 2020. She was scheduled to open for Reba McEntire and Luke Bryan in 2020 but the COVID-19 pandemic cut her Europe tour short and the opening acts for Reba were postponed which left the musican and her band with no income. During this time they started to offer a landscaping service to make up for the lost income. Caylee learned about her first-ever ACM nomination for New Female Artist of the Year for the 2020 ACM Awards while waiting for her plane at the airport. She hosted a Facebook event together with Ashley McBryde called CMT Next Women of Country Goes Live on April 7, 2020 and appeared on Country Outdoors LIVE special from Outdoor Channel on May 8. She announced on June 24 that her debut album If It Wasn’t For You will be released later in August and will contain 13 songs. She co-wrote 12 of them and wrote on by herself. The album features duets with Reba McEntire, Ashley McBryde, and Tenille Townes.
