Gabby Barrett Makes It a Good One With Back To Back Weeks At Number-1

Gabby Barrett Makes It a Good One With Back To Back Weeks At Number-1

Congrats to Gabby Barrett for having the number-1 spot on the country music airplay chart for the second week in a row.

This past weekend, she and her husband Cade Foehner – who was also the inspiration behind Gabby writing “The Good Ones” – performed the number-1 song on the ACM Awards.

With everything happening in her life now – being named ACM New Female Artist of the Year, her second number-1 and motherhood — Gabby says “Life has been amazing…crazy…all the things.”

Of course she also joked about appearing at the Awards Show Sunday night, “I’m normally in bed right now, this is way past my bed time, but this is well worth it!”

While she’s loving being at home with her daughter, Gabby is also excited about her plans for later this year, “I’ve announced that I’m going to be going on tour this year with Thomas Rhett, so I’m excited for that, excited to get back out on the road…it’s good.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
