Warner Music Nashville’s record-shattering star Gabby Barrett launched into the new year on the heels of a “year…as successful as any burgeoning singer could ‘hope’ to experience” (The Tennessean). 

Continuing her history-making run this week with now 4X PLATINUM breakout hit “I Hope,” Barrett notched her 25th week atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, earning the third-longest-leading #1 single since the chart began as an all-encompassing genre ranking in October 1958. Named one of the best songs of 2020 by the Associated Press and Billboard, the earth-shattering debut cements its place as “the biggest country song of the year” (Variety).

Gaining now, sophomore single “The Good Ones” (writers: Barrett, Zach Kale, Emily Landis, Jim McCormick) is Top 15-and-climbing at Country radio, praised as a “sweet, elegant piece…made all the more touching by (its) accompanying music video” (MusicRow). The GOLD-certified riser continues Barrett’s trends in both streaming and consumption, topping 150 MILLION global streams already, ranking #6 this week on the Shazam USA Top Country Chart, consuming inside the Top 10 for all songs on the Mediabase Country radio chart and selling inside the Top 5. 

Making the start to the year even more special, Barrett and her husband Cade Foehner welcomed their first child, a daughter named Baylah May, on January 18. Read the sweet news here.





Warner Music Nashville’s Gabby Barrett is setting the trend. Nominated for multiple CMA, ACM, CMT and American Music Awards, named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2020, 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 4X PLATINUM debut “I Hope” was the most-streamed Country song of 2020, highlighted as one of the best songs of the year by the Associated Press and Billboard, and won CMT’s 2020 Breakthrough Video of the Year award, simultaneously cracking the Top 3 on Billboard's all genre Hot 100 chart. Reigning atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for a record-breaking 25 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. Adding to nearly 1 BILLION global streams, her top-streaming LP GOLDMINE includes the 4-week Hot AC #1 crossover version of “I Hope” feat. Charlie Puth – which earned the iHeartRadio Titanium Award for reaching over 1 BILLION radio spins and was named one of Rolling Stone's best Pop and Country collaborations of 2020 – alongside current Top 15 GOLD single, “The Good Ones.”
