Gabby Barrett’s “Glory Days” Music Video

The news comes just days after Gabby Barrett released the music video for her latest single, “Glory Days.” 

The award-winning country star enlisted her husband, Cade Foehner, and two children, Baylah May, 2, and Augustine Boone, 8 months, to co-star in the clip.

“Glory Days” Mirrors Barrett’s Real Life

Out now, the anthemic song mirrors Barrett’s real life as she sings about the things that make her life so full, like her family and her faith. Throughout the lyrics, she promises to live life in the moment and never take things for granted because she recognizes that she’s living out the “Glory Days” right now.  

“This is as good as it gets, I don’t know what I would change / I love this life that we live, I love that smile on your face / No, we ain’t gotta look back at all those pictures in frames / And wish it’d all stay the same / ‘Cause right here, right now I say, ‘These are the glory days,’” the American Idol alum sings on the chorus. 

Barrett co-wrote “Glory Days” with Emily Weisband, Seth Mosley, and James McNair, and co-produced the track with Ross Copperman.
