Captivating Country newcomer GABBY BARRETT continues her meteoric rise at SiriusXM, cracking the Top 3 with slow-burning, eye-for-an-eye anthem, “I Hope,” while also claiming the #1 spot on Radio Disney’s Top 50 chart this week.
Hailed as one of the “10 Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Now” by Rolling Stone Country – who praised the tough-talking single as “full of venom and vitriol” – “I Hope” has now been streamed more than 14 MILLION times globally, and its attention-grabbing video has been viewed over 3.3 MILLION times.
Co-written by Barrett with Zachary Kale and Jon Nite, the track has gained significant radio momentum since it was featured as a “Highway Find” by SiriusXM and spinning on Radio Disney Country – highlighting its blood-pumping sonics and Barrett’s sizzling vocal delivery.
“It’s been so much fun watching Gabby’s music explode on The Highway. The reaction has been huge from the beginning and hasn’t showed any signs of slowing down. Gabby Barrett is a star…it’s that simple,” praises The Highway’s Senior Director of Programming, J.R. Schumann.
The Pennsylvania native used her dynamic voice to impress as a finalist on Season 16 of ABC’s American Idol, and has since gone on to stun concertgoers around the nation. She recently delivered an electrifying beachside performance at the Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
On May 3, she rejoins PLATINUM-certified hitmaker CHRIS LANE for a show in Buffalo, NY – reprising his successful LAPS AROUND THE SUN TOUR lineup – and has more festival and fair dates on tap through September. As “I Hope” keeps climbing the charts, fans should be on the lookout for more new music soon. Barrett is currently in the studio with GRAMMY-nominated producer Ross Copperman (Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban), working on her debut-recording project.
