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…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
