“Hammack bares her soul on the deeply personal “Small Town Hypocrite,” a heartbreaking story song about trusting the wrong person.” – Billboard
Since Hammack released the autobiographical song, critics, fans and peers alike have had an overwhelming affinity for the track and the picture it paints of the songwriter’s journey of heartbreak and reflection.
“A devastating ballad about the guy who broke her heart that felt so intimately specific, with weary anger so finely honed, that it was hard to imagine what heights Hammack could reach on her second album.” – Rolling Stone
Hammack also hand illustrated the single art for the special release of the track, depicting the trailer featured in the vulnerable lyrics.
Co-written and co-produced by Hammack, NPR and Esquire singled out “Small Town Hypocrite” as one of their “Best Songs of 2020” and the acclaim continues to stack up.
“My one whim for this song was to hear Chris Stapleton accompany me on it,” shared Hammack. “Two years after I spoke this wish out loud in the studio, Chris agreed to sing the part I had written in hopes of hearing his voice on it. Life is a beautiful full circle sometimes. I am so grateful to Chris for singing on this song.”
Caylee Hammack just released her debut record IF IT WASN’T FOR YOU.
