Gabby Barrett Picked a Good One, and Now Its Number-One

Gabby Barrett Picked a Good One, and Now Its Number-One

Congrats to Gabby Barrett — not only was she just named this year’s ACM New Female Artist, but now she also has the number-1 spot on the Billboard country airplay chart!

She’s in the top spot with “The Good Ones” — a song that is dedicated to her husband Cade Foehner, because Gabby says that he is one of the good ones.

Gabby shares, “The story with ‘The Good Ones’ is I found myself a good one! People would always come up and ask me ‘Oh, how’s your boyfriend? How’s this one?’ and I’d be ‘Oh, he’s a good one. He’s a keeper.’ So, I wanted to write a song, and kind of saying that he’s a good one, and it’s about him,”

Not only did Gabby use Cade as the inspiration for her new track when she was co-writing it, but the happy couple performed it on last year’s ACM Awards…as Gabby sang, Cade was right there on stage with her playing guitar. Gabby and Cade started their love story 3 year’s ago when they were both contestants on American Idol. After marrying in October of 2019, the couple made their duo a trio this year as they welcome a beautiful baby daughter.

Cade also makes a special appearance in Gabby’s music video for “The Good Ones” which you can check out right here…

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
