Gabby Barrett Says She’s A “Big Fan” Of Luke Combs
While co-hosting Country Countdown USA alongside Lon Helton, the country superstar opened up about a song she’s cutting that Combs wrote.
“I’m a big fan of his. He pitched me a song not too long ago,” Barrett explained. “As soon as I heard it, I was like it really strikes a chord with me. I’m definitely gonna put it on my next album coming out later this year. He was very adamant about the song and me recording it. I think it’s an awesome song, and it’s coming out this year.”
Gabby Barrett Also Teased A Duet With Her Husband Cade Foehner
While chatting with Helton, Barrett also teased a possible duet with her husband Cade Foehner may appear on the project.
“Probably, there’s a good chance [of Cade and I are releasing a duet]. There have been a lot of requests for that,” Barrett continued. “Maybe on album two this year. You never know. I’ll let you know!”
She previously teased a duet with her husband during a discussion with Music Mayhem in 2020. At the time, she explained, “I can definitely see us doing a song together. We’ve gotten requests from so many people to do that… It has been fans from Idol and fans of our marriage and our relationship so definitely. I would love to and we may or may not already have something in the works for that in the future now. So, yes!”
Barrett and Foehner, who is Barrett’s husband and lead guitarist, have never released a duet together. However, the couple have performed as well as written songs together. Foehner contributed to several songs on Barrett’s debut album, Goldmine, including “Got Me,” which he co-wrote. Cade Foehner’s outstanding guitar solos are also featured on Barrett’s song, “Footprints On The Moon.”
In addition, Cade Foehner also often serves as Barrett’s muse for songwriting. Barrett puts her and Foehner’s picture-perfect love story on full-display in songs such as “Thank God,” “Write It On My Heart,” “Strong,” “Hall Of Fame,” “Goldmine,” “The Good Ones” and her current Top 10 and climbing single “Pick Me Up.”
