Gabby Barrett revealed plans for a deluxe album and teased album No. 2.
Recently, during an interview with Celeb Secrets’ correspondent Juliet Schroder at the CMT Artists Of The Year ceremony, the country superstar revealed that she will be releasing new music sooner than you think, this year, actually.
The singer/songwriter shared that she will be releasing a deluxe edition of her record-breaking album, Goldmine.
“There’s going to be new music this year, so I’ll be releasing a deluxe version of my album ‘Goldmine,’ which will have a few new songs on it, which I’m really excited about,” Barrett said.
In addition to releasing a deluxe project, Barrett told the publication that she will be focusing more on writing songs for her next album in 2022.
“We’ll also be focusing on writing a lot for album No. 2,” the “I Hope” singer added.
When Schroder asked Barrett if fans can expect to hear any songs about her 10-month-old daughter, Baylah May, the hitmaker teased that she may include one song about her and her husband Cade Foehner’s precious daughter.
Barrett continued, “I’m trying to figure out the theme of what I want it to be, I haven’t done that yet, but I do know that I always write music about real-life instances, that are going on. So, you probably will find a song about a baby in there.”
