Rising Warner Music Nashville powerhouse GABBY BARRETT illuminates the real world “good ones” in her heartfelt new music video for most-recent release “The Good Ones,” premiering exclusively on YouTube and available on all digital platforms today. 

Directed by Brian Vaughn and Taylor Kelly and shot in Nashville, TN, “The Good Ones” tells the frame-by-frame story of a young-and-in-love couple's life together– going to the grocery store, hanging out on the couch to watch movies, taking a dip in the pool and more. Intertwined throughout the clips, the male actor is seen working away in his barn building something from scratch. The video then takes a moving turn to reveal what makes their relationship, and his project, so special.

Barrett is seen throughout the video singing in ethereal lighting, narrating the story with the song that inspired it. She gets a sweet surprise when fiancé CADE FOEHNER, her “good one,” stops by for a quick cameo. “'The Good Ones’ is such a special song to me — it’s inspired by my love story with my fiancé Cade, so I knew that the video needed to be just as special,” Barrett tells PEOPLE.
