Caylee Hammack bares her soul with the release of her latest single “Small Town Hypocrite,” now spinning at country radio. Co-written and co-produced by Hammack, the autobiographical ballad ties together her top-notch writing skills and vocals, painting the unvarnished truth of Hammack’s personal journey of heartbreak and reflection. Hammack is also hosting “CMT’s Next Women of Country Goes Live” series inviting special guests each week, with previous guests including Ashley McBryde, Cassadee Pope, Tenille Townes and Lindsay Ell, as a medium to connect with audiences through music and conversation.  Fans can tune in each Tuesday at 5 PM/CT on CMT’s FB page.  Capitol Records Nashville’s Caylee Hammack grew up in the tiny town of Ellaville, Georgia, and at only 25, she has already packed a full life into just a few years, using fake IDs to get gigs around South Georgia, turning down a college scholarship for a love that burned out, sleeping in her car when she arrived in Nashville and then losing her home in an electrical fire.
