Warner Music Nashville’s Gabby Barrett had a groundbreaking year in 2020, releasing her debut album GOLDMINE and “one of this era’s great ill-wishing breakup songs” (Variety), 3X PLATINUM debut “I Hope,” now the longest-leading #1 by an unaccompanied female artist in the history of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with a 20-week reign.

“Wow, I’m blown away,” shares Barrett. “This year has been absolutely crazy for all of us, so to have this kind of year career-wise feels surreal. I’m so grateful for every step that my team, my fans and most importantly my family have taken to bring us here. Thank you to all of you, and to Country radio, for making this possible!”

Putting the cherry on top of her breakout 2020, Barrett was the only Country artist included in Rolling Stone’s 10 Biggest Breakthrough Artists of 2020, and listed as one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Music. “I Hope” was the most-streamed Country song of the year, selected as one of the best songs of 2020 by Associated PressBillboardTaste of Country, and Sounds Like Nashville, with the Hot AC chart-topping version featuring Charlie Puth named to Rolling Stone’s 10 Best Country Collaborations of 2020 and Best Pop Collaborations of 2020.

Building momentum, her Top 25-and-rising single “The Good Ones” just surpassed 100 MILLION on-demand streams and is officially certified GOLD by the RIAA. American Songwriter summarizes it all, noting simply: “there’s a new wave of artists hitting Country music…and perhaps the one creating the most buzz is Gabby Barrett.”





Warner Music Nashville’s Gabby Barrett is setting the trend as Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2020. Nominated for multiple CMA, ACM, CMT and American Music Awards, named an Amazon Music Breakthrough artist, included in Variety’s 2020 Young Hollywood Impact Report, a Billboard “Chartbreaker,” and one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Music, Barrett continues to prove why she’s “the face of Gen-Z Country” (HITS). Her meteoric debut – 3X PLATINUM "lightning-in-a-bottle single" (PEOPLE) “I Hope” – is 2020’s most-streamed Country song, winning CMT’s 2020 Breakthrough Video of the Year award and cracking the Top 3 on Billboard's all genre Hot 100 chart. Reigning atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 20 weeks, “I Hope” was also the first debut single by a solo female artist to top the Country radio charts since 2017 and made her the youngest artist with a #1 debut at Country radio in over two decades.
