Rising country powerhouse Caylee Hammack is ready to make waves with the release of her debut album, If It Wasn’t For You. The record will release via Capitol Records on August 14 and showcases the singer’s ability to be both powerful and vulnerable all at once.

“I feel like I’m airing all my dirty laundry in this album in hopes of others feeling that honesty and vulnerability and in it, finding a safe haven to be themselves,” said Hammack in a press release. “I want the nitty gritty to shine through, that’s where the stories are. Every song on this record has a true story behind it, and now I can’t wait to tell those once people listen to the album!”

The album features 13 new tracks, all of which were written or co-written by Hammack herself. And in an exciting turn of events, the project also includes a special collaboration with fellow redhead Reba McEntire on the song (you guessed it) “Redhead.” Fellow rising stars Tenille Townes and Ashley McBryde also make guest appearances on the record.

To celebrate the announcement of If It Wasn’t For You, Hammack has shared the story behind the album’s title as she sings “Gold,” the only track she wrote solely by herself.
