Caylee Hammack teamed up with one of her musical heroes, Country Music Hall of Famer Alan Jackson, for a special cover of Don Williams’ “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good” and it’s pure country gold.
Produced by six-time Grammy-winner Dave Cobb, the song delivers a well-timed message of hope that we can all relate to during these unprecedented times.
“Lord, I hope this day is good/ I’m feelin’ empty and misunderstood/ I should be thankful Lord, I know I should/ But Lord, I hope this day is good,” they sing on the chorus.
“This song has held a special place in my heart since childhood,” Hammack shared in a statement. “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,” added Jackson.
“Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good” was originally recorded by the Country Music Hall of Fame member Don Williams in 1981. It went on to become his 12th No.1 single and has previously been covered by artists such as Lee Ann Womack and Keb’ Mo’.
Caylee Hammack recently announced the upcoming release of her debut album, If It Wasn’t For You. Out August 14, the project features 13 tracks all co-written and co-produced by the Georgia native.
