Rising country star Caylee Hammack channels a piece of advice she once received from her mother in her new song “Preciatcha.”

The infectious new tune is all about embracing the lessons you learn after a breakup, rather than dwelling on them.

“Preciatcha, every time you made me cry/ I appreciate ya, even how you said goodbye/ Cut me deep, cut me loose/ Cut me out like a piece of paper/ But it taught me that isn’t love/ So how can I hate ya/ I appreciate ya,” Hammack sings throughout the chorus.

“My mother once told me that every hand you hold is a lesson or a blessing,” the Georgia native shares. “If you find good love, you hold on to it. If you find something else by accident, learn what you must from that experience and move on. ‘Preciatcha’ is about searching for a silver lining in a storm. It’s my song for the broken hearts that deserved better but didn’t get it.”

Hammack co-wrote and co-produced “Preciatcha” alongside Laura Veltz and Jordan Schmidt. The track is the follow-up to her debut single, “Family Tree.”

With each new release, Hammack continues to prove why she’s one of country music’s most buzzed-about new artists.

Caylee Hammack is gearing up to hit the road this fall with opening slots on Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert’s headlining tours. Click HERE to see if she’s coming to a city near you.
