Universal Music Group Nashville has signed singer/songwriter Caylee Hammack. A native of Ellaville, Georgia, Caylee moved to Nashville at age 19 and talked her way into gigs on Lower Broadway at night while trying to break into the songwriter community during the day. She signed a publishing deal in 2016 with Universal Music Publishing Group as the youngest writer on their roster and went on to win the ASCAP Foundation’s Sammy Cahn Award, which is given to a promising and aspiring lyricist. Past recipients of the prestigious award include John Mayer and Lori McKenna. She is represented by Red Light Management’s Mary Hilliard Harrington and Jay Williams/Joey Lee at William Morris Endeavor.
To commemorate signing her first record deal, Caylee used an antique quill pen originally used when her grandparents signed their marriage certificate over 50 years ago. Known for her mix of clever lyrics and haunting melodies, Caylee is currently in the studio working on her debut album. For additional information, please visit HERE.
