Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” Rules the Hot Country Songs Chart for 12th Week

Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart (streaming, sales and airplay-based) for the 12th week, which is the second-longest run by a solo female artist in the history of the chart. Only Maren Morris’ “The Bones” enjoyed a longer reign with 19 weeks atop the chart.

Penned by Gabby, Zachary Kale and Jon Nite, “I Hope” is featured on Gabby’s 2020 debut album, Goldmine. “I Hope” topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart in April.

The longest run on the Hot Country Songs chart is Bebe Rexha’s “Meant to Be,” featuring Florida Georgia Line, which spent 50 weeks at No. 1 in 2017-2018.

“I Hope” is nominated for Single of the Year at the upcoming CMA Awards. Gabby is also nominated for New Artist of the Year.

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

2020 was a year that taught us all a lot. Thomas Rhett reflects on the year we just left behind, and what he will take with him into this new year, “You know, 2020 has definitely been hard in many ways, especially for a lot of different families who have either lost work or people that have been on the front lines working in hospitals, or teachers trying to teach three year olds how to learn their letters and their numbers. But for us, I think 2020 has had several silver linings, and for me, I think I was going at such a rapid pace that 2020 definitely forced me to slow down. And so I hope I can take that mindset back into 2021.”
