Gabby Barrett (born March 5, 2000) is an American country music singer. She finished third on sixteenth season of American Idol.
Her debut single "I Hope" was the first top ten Hot Country Songs debut by an unaccompanied woman since October 2017. It has since become a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA. Her debut album Goldmine was released on June 19, 2020.
Early life and education
Barrett is one of eight children born to Blaise and Pam Barrett. She attended Serra Catholic High School in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, but transferred to Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School.
She started singing at nine and doing shows at eleven. In 2014, she won the Kean Quest Talent Search. At 14, her father encouraged her to sing in an all-black choir, which prompted her to join the Lamb of God Christian Ministries in Homestead, Pennsylvania.
After Barrett appeared on American Idol, she collaborated with songwriter and producer Allen Foster to write three songs on her extended play The Fireflies: "Fireflies", "Your Name On It", and "Missin' Love".
Barrett has opened for Toby Keith in Ohio, as well as Keith Urban and Cole Swindell. Along with performing at a Pittsburgh Pirates' game, she sang the national anthem for the Pittsburgh Steelers and at the Daytona 500. The song on the show selected for her if she won was "Rivers Deep." Carrie Underwood was quoted as saying that Barrett is further along than she was at her age.
Her debut album Goldmine was released on June 19, 2020. The album earned 15.98 million on-demand streams in its opening week, breaking the record for the largest streaming week ever for a debut country album by a woman.
In 2019, Barrett independently released "I Hope", which was co-written by Jon Nite and Zachary Kale and co-produced by Zachary Kale and Ross Copperman. She performed the song in an appearance on the seventeenth season of American Idol in May 2019. It attracted the attention of music labels, and in June 2019, Barrett signed with Warner Music Nashville. "I Hope" was then officially released as a single by the label on June 27, 2019. This debut single topped Billboard's Country Streaming Songs chart as well as the Country Airplay chart in April 2020 and the Hot Country Songs.
On August 24, 2020, the single hit number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the first female Country artist to do so since Taylor Swift.
Barrett married fellow Idol contestant Cade Foehner on October 5, 2019. On August 16, 2020, Barrett announced via her Instagram she and Foehner were expecting their first child together, a girl, due early 2021.
