Gabby Barrett performed her second chart-topping single “The Good Ones” on the 2021 ACM Awards.
The ACM New Female Artist Of The Year performed a unique rendition of the track, live from Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe alongside her husband Cade Foehner.
“It’s a new configuration. It’s exciting for me because I’ve never done anything like this. I think it will be really cool. It is kind of a piece of my song ‘The Good Ones,'” Barrett explained ahead of her performance. The singer went on to share that her performance at the Bluebird Cafe is a full circle moment, as the last time she visited the iconic venue she met her Idol, Carrie Underwood.
