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.”
