Warner Music Nashville’s platinum star and 2X 2021 ACM nominee Gabby Barrett reaches new heights, adding onto “one of the biggest breakout years of any artist in country music” (Billboard).
GOLD-certified sophomore single “The Good Ones” soars into Country radio’s Top 5 this week, ranking #1 in equivalents and sales among the current Mediabase Top 50. The “love song for the ones worth holding onto” (The Boot) is now the second-most streamed female Country song of the year, only trailing Barrett’s 4X platinum breakout debut, “I Hope.”
On the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart, “I Hope” continues to make history, charting for 98 weeks and earning the top spot for 27 total weeks. “The Good Ones” is charging forward, currently sitting at #2 and primed to follow in its success. Barrett is currently the only artist with two tracks inside the Top 10 of Shazam’s Country chart.
Solidifying her chart-topping entrance into the genre, American Songwriter raves, “Barrett has made all the right moves and the results have all been aces. She’s beaten the odds time and again.”
This April, Barrett is nominated for two ACM Awards – Single of the Year (“I Hope”) and New Female Artist of the Year. Her latest project – seven-track Live From The Goldmine EP – is out now; stream it here.
