Gabby Barrett’s debut single, “I Hope,” topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.
Gabby is now the fourth solo female artist in 14 years to score a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with her debut single, following Carly Pearce’s “Every Little Thing” (Nov. 2017), Kelsea Ballerini’s “Love Me Like You Mean It” (June 2015) and Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus, Take the Wheel” (Jan. 2006).
Gabby’s star power isn’t news to one of the aforementioned artists who scored a No. 1 with her debut single. During the CMA Awards in November 2019, Carly Pearce told Nash Country Daily that she was a “huge Gabby Barrett fan.”
“I’m a huge Gabby Barrett fan,” says Carly. “I think Gabby is a star. She has two songs out that are amazing. ‘I Hope’ is a big ol’ hit. She’s got another song called ‘The Good Ones’ that will blow you away.”
