Gabby Barrett is celebrating an impressive year following the release her debut album, GOLDMINE, which came out mid-June.
The country superstar’s 3X Platinum hit “I Hope” has now earned the title of the longest-leading No. 1 by an unaccompanied female artist in the history of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs charts with a 20-week reign, breaking Billboard Hot Country Songs record.
“Wow, I’m blown away,” shares Barrett. “This year has been absolutely crazy for all of us, so to have this kind of year career-wise feels surreal. I’m so grateful for every step that my team, my fans and most importantly my family have taken to bring us here. Thank you to all of you, and to Country radio, for making this possible!”
Putting the cherry on top of her breakout 2020, Barrett was the only Country artist included in Rolling Stone’s 10 Biggest Breakthrough Artists of 2020, and listed as one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Music. “I Hope” was the most-streamed Country song of the year, selected as one of the best songs of 2020 by Associated Press, Billboard, Taste of Country, and Sounds Like Nashville, with the Hot AC chart-topping version featuring Charlie Puth named to Rolling Stone’s 10 Best Country Collaborations of 2020 and Best Pop Collaborations of 2020.
Building momentum, her Top 25-and-rising single “The Good Ones” just surpassed 100 MILLION on-demand streams and is officially certified GOLD by the RIAA.
