Gabby Barrett will follow up her No. 1 debut single, “I Hope,” with the release of “The Good Ones” on June 8.
Penned by Gabby, Zach Kale, Emily Landis and Jim McCormick, “The Good Ones” is featured on Gabby’s upcoming debut album, Goldmine, which will drop on June 19. Gabby co-penned the new single about her then-boyfriend, now-husband Cade Foehner.
“The story with ‘The Good Ones’ is I found myself a good one,” says Gabby. “I know that he’s the one for me. People would always come up and ask me, ‘Oh, how’s your boyfriend, how’s this one?’ And I would be like, ‘He’s a good one, he’s a keeper.’ So I wanted to write a song saying that he’s a good one. It’s about him.”
In April, Gabby became 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).
