Gabby Barrett Reaches Billboard Chart Milestone as “I Hope” Spends 20th Week at No. 1

Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart (streaming, sales and airplay-based) for the 20th week, which is the longest run by a solo female artist in the history of the chart.

“I Hope” surpassed Maren Morris’ “The Bones,” which reigned for 19 weeks atop the chart. 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.

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.

Gabby’s “I Hope” won the Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2020 CMT Music Awards, while also garnering nominations at the 2020 CMA Awards, ACM Awards and American Music Awards. “I Hope” is also the No. 1 song on Billboard’s 2020 Year-End charts for Hot Country Songs, Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs.
