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.”

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.”
