Warner Music Nashville powerhouse Gabby Barrett came into national prominence as a finalist on ABC’s American Idol in 2018, and has since burst on to the scene with debut single, “I Hope.” Tapped as a “Highway Find” by SiriusXM’s “The Highway,” one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 Best Country and Americana Songs To Hear Now,” and a CMT Artist Discovery member, Barrett and her “sizzling slow burner” (Sounds Like Nashville) are garnering serious attention from fans and media alike. Making her first return performance on Idol for the national TV debut of the track, and taking it to Disney’s “ARDYs: A Celebration of Music,” “I Hope” claimed the #1 spot on SiriusXM’s “The Highway” Hot 30 Countdown and on Radio Disney’s Country Top 50 chart, notching 34.9 MILLION+ on-demand streams and solidifying Barrett as “a voice you must hear” (The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). A native of Munhall, Pennsylvania, and one of eight children, Barrett began singing in her local gospel choir at the age of nine, started playing shows at age 11 and performed 136 shows in 2017 alone, before rising to fame on Idol. She has recently shared the stage with superstars like Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Toby Keith, Keith Urban, Chris Lane, Dustin Lynch, Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, Bebe Rexha, Sugarland, and Carrie Underwood and is currently in the studio with GRAMMY-nominated producer Ross Copperman working on her debut album release.
GABBY BARRETT is #1 at Country Radio today with her debut single “I Hope”. She is the first solo female country debut to go #1 since 2017. With over 200M+ total on-demand streams and 8.5M this week alone, this song is a Smash!
She released a new version of “I Hope” on Friday featuring Charlie Puth. Warner LA will service this to pop radio globally May 11th. You can listen to the collaboration here. BIG week for GABBY!
