Chart-climbing Country powerhouse Gabby Barrett is rising to new heights in early 2020, crossing more milestones as her early career momentum builds.
The Warner Music Nashville talent has now eclipsed 200 MILLION on-demand streams with excitement surrounding the vocally gifted newcomer in Country’s mainstream becoming evident. Her jet-fueled revenge anthem, “I Hope,” is now Top 15 on the Country Radio airplay charts and inside the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs list, the first debut single from a female artist to claim the honor since 2017, both huge benchmark successes across the genre.
Meanwhile, “I Hope” also ranked in the Top 5 of all on-demand Country streams and came in at #3 in Country song sales last week, with the heavy-hitting single reaching #1 on Apple Music’s Country chart – as well as #48 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart.
Recognizing a true next-gen Country star, early supporter SiriusXM featured Barrett as one of their 2019 Highway Finds, and continues to sing her praises.
“Since becoming a Highway Find in early 2019, Gabby Barrett is approaching 2,500 lifetime spins (for ‘I Hope,’ ‘The Good Ones,’ and ‘Hall of Fame’) with ‘I Hope’ ending 2019 as one of the biggest researching and reacting songs of the year,” Senior Director of Programming J.R. Schumann says. “She is a force to be reckoned with, plain and simple.”
Looking ahead, Barrett has more big impressions to make this summer. She’ll join Brad Paisley in support of his 2020 World Tour starting May 15 in Concord, CA, set to visit cities across the U.S. and Europe through September, and will also perform at high-profile festivals including Country Jam, Stagecoach, Tortuga Music Festival and more.





Warner Music Nashville’s Gabby Barrett is setting the trend. Recently spotlighted as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country (Class of 2020), a 2020 MusicRow Next Big Thing artist, a SiriusXM + Pandora All-Genre and Country Artist to Watch, Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing, and Amazon Music’s Weekly One best performing Country female of 2019, she continues to rise through the ranks as “country music’s next female superstar” (Country Now). Garnering critical acclaim, Barrett’s current single “I Hope” was named one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 Best Country and Americana Songs To Hear Now” and claimed the #1 spot on SiriusXM’s The Highway Hot 30 Countdown and on Radio Disney’s Country Top 50 chart. “A voice you must hear,” (The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) Barrett has opened for Dierks Bentley, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Toby Keith, Chris Lane, Dustin Lynch, Jake Owen, Bebe Rexha, Cole Swindell, Sugarland, and Carrie Underwood, and will take the stage at mile marker festivals like Stagecoach, Tortuga Music Festival, and Country Jam in 2020. With over 200 MILLION on-demand streams to her credit, Barrett previewed her upcoming Ross Copperman-produced album releasing new songs “The Good Ones” and “Hall of Fame.” The Pennsylvania native began singing in her local gospel choir at nine years old, and performed 136 shows in 2017 alone before rising to national prominence as a Top 3 finalist on ABC’s American Idol.
