Caylee Hammack & Alan Jackson Team Up for New Rendition of “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good” [Listen]

Caylee Hammack and Alan Jackson joined forces for a new rendition of “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good.”

Penned by Dave Hanner, “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good” was a No. 1 hit for Don Williams in February 1982.

“This song has held a special place in my heart since childhood,” says Caylee. “And, during the past few months at home, I have found myself frequently visiting songs I grew up on because of the comfort it has brought me, especially this one. It has always been a golden classic in my heart and I believe in many others; and it’s message felt much needed today. Alan Jackson was gracious enough to bring his voice and heart to this song and made it feel like chicken noodle soup for the country music soul. I just feel very honored to be able to send our rendition out into the world today!”

“It’s so nice to be able to finally record one of my favorite Don Williams songs with a great message for today and to be able to sing it with another Georgia native with a sweet voice,” says Alan.

Caylee will release her major-label debut album, If It Wasn’t For You, on Aug. 14, but her new collaboration with Alan is not noted on the 13-song track list. Caylee, who was named to CMT’s 2020 Next Women of Country class, co-wrote and co-produced every song on her upcoming album. Caylee is currently nominated for two ACM Awards: New Female Artist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “Fooled Around and Fell in Love.”

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
