Just as fiery as Caylee Hammack herself, “Redhead” blazes onto the country music scene with another fierce redhead, the queen, Reba McEntire. With this track, Hammack confirms the stereotype of redheads being spitfires, and though she owns every bit of her firecracker personality, she admits that it might have been a little harder to raise a child with this much spunk.
Inspired by an older cousin with flames as locks, “Redhead”, co-written with Natalie Hemby and Trent Dabbs, has that old rock beat, with Hammack’s smooth, deep vocals overtop, and lyrics that roll right off the tongue.
“They got their hands full, trying to tame a pistol / Spitfire, freckles that could run among the dead / Clothesline, tight rope, daredevil, high hopes / They raised a little hell when they raised a little redhead”
McEntire’s addition adds to the grit of the track, bringing an even deeper appreciation for their unique perspective on being a redhead. If this is any insight into Hammack’s new album, If It Wasn’t For You, then a whole lot of unapologetic truth is coming our way later this summer. She tells it like it is, with specific stories of joy, love, heartache, and hope, and even a little bitterness sprinkled in. You won’t forget about these two redheads if they have anything to say about it.
