Gabby Barrett Announces New Album ‘Chapter & Verse,’ Releases “Growin’ Up Raising You”

Country singer-songwriter and producer Gabby Barrett has announced her sophomore album, Chapter & Verse, due out February 2, 2024. Pre-save her upcoming album HERE! She released a new ballad “Growin’ Up Raising You” from her upcoming album now available. Stream her latest song HERE!

Gabby credited songwriters Jon Nite, Zach Kale, and Jimmy Robbins with “knowing how to pull words out of the soul,” as she introduced her fans to “Growin’ Up Raising You.” “This song was specifically written about my first born daughter, Baylah. I’ve learned so much over the past few years watching my babies grow & I wouldn’t have it any other way.” Gabby shared in her caption on Instagram on Friday.

“‘Growin’ Up Raising You’ is a very sensitive song for me, I would say. It talks about exactly what the title says, ‘Growin’ Up Raising You.’ I’m only 23. I don’t have all the answers to everything. I have not got everything figured out. I am doing the best that I can while trying to raise other people to be the best people that they can be. And so, it’s just so interesting and I feel so blessed to be able to have three little lives that I can help to flourish in life while I am also trying to figure out life myself.” – Gabby Barrett

GABBY BARRETT TO DELIVER HOTLY ANTICIPATED SOPHOMORE ALBUM CHAPTER & VERSE ON FEBRUARY 2, 2024

Warner Music Nashville MULTI-PLATINUM star Gabby Barrett has announced the title and release date for Chapter & Verse – her massively anticipated sophomore album, due out on February 2, 2024. Her most autobiographical work to date, Chapter & Verse will follow the 23-year-old hitmaker’s PLATINUM debut Goldmine and deliver even more of the fullhearted songwriting that’s made her one of Country’s brightest young superstars. Also today (11/10), Barrett shares the latest release from Chapter & Verse: an unforgettably poignant track called “Growin’ Up Raising You.” LISTEN HERE.

In a stunning evolution of Goldmine and its Deluxe edition – a 2020 release featuring smash singles like mega breakout 7X PLATINUM #1 “I Hope,” 4-week Hot AC #1 crossover “I Hope (feat. Charlie Puth),” 3X PLATINUM three-week #1 “The Good Ones,” and PLATINUM “Pick Me Up” – Chapter & Verse finds Barrett taking greater creative control than ever before having co-written and co-produced already released “GLORY DAYS” – her current single that’s Top 30-and-climbing at Country radio – and “COWBOY BACK.”

Along with fully leaning into her Country roots on Chapter & Verse, Barrett’s deepened the emotional scope of her songwriting and created an up close portrait of her experience as a wife and mother of two children, with her third baby due early next year. To that end, the album’s title refers to the chapters and verses within each book of the Bible, as well as the still-unfolding chapters in her marriage, family, career, and overall journey through life.

On “Growin’ Up Raising You,” Barrett offers up one of Chapter & Verse’s most heart-melting moments. Written by Barrett, Jon Nite, Zach Kale, and Jimmy Robbins, the slow-burning ballad details all the fear and hope of new motherhood, with Barrett’s beautifully nuanced vocal channeling both vulnerability and undeniable strength: “We’ll get it wrong, we’ll get it right / Whole lotta tears we’ll both have to cry / You’ll learn to run, I’ll learn to let go / Years will go fast, nights will go slow / Lord knows the best thing that I’ll ever do / Will be growin’ up raising you.” In a testament to her sharp instincts as a co-producer (alongside Ross Copperman), “Growin’ Up Raising You” sets that outpouring to a luminous backdrop of soaring strings, tender harmonies, and a lovely intertwining of acoustic, electric, and pedal steel guitar.

“‘Growin’ Up Raising You’ is a very sensitive song for me,” shares Barrett. “I’m only 23 – I don’t have all the answers to everything, and I haven’t gotten everything figured out. I’m doing the best that I can while trying to raise other people to be the best people they can be. I feel so blessed to be able to have three little lives that I can help to flourish while I’m also trying to figure out life myself.”

“Growin’ Up Raising You”

(Intro)
(Ooh, ooh)

(Verse 1)
Six in the mornin’, hands are shakin’
Half ready, half scared to death
Hand me the world, wrapped in a pink blanket
The world falls asleep on my chest

(Pre-Chorus)
I’m so in love even though we just met
Got no clue what I should do next

(Chorus)
We’ll get it wrong, we’ll get it right
Whole lotta tears we’ll both have to cry
You’ll learn to run, I’ll learn to let go
Years will go fast, nights will go slow
Lord knows the best thing that I’ll ever do
Will be growin’ up raisin’ you

(Post-Chorus)
(Ooh, ooh)

(Verse 2)
I sat in the backseat for twenty miles back home
Holdin’ my breath the wholе way
Through the knee scrapes, the hеartbreaks, and learnin’ the hard way
We’re both gonna turn out okay

(Chorus)
We’ll get it wrong, we’ll get it right
Whole lotta tears we’ll both have to cry
You’ll learn to run, I’ll learn to let go
Years will go fast, nights will go slow
Lord knows the best thing that I’ll ever do
Will be growin’ up raisin’ you

(Post-Chorus)
(You, ah)
(You, ah)

(Bridge)
You’ll crawl ‘til you run and you’ll run ‘til you drive
And your drivin’ will drive us both crazy
Wherever you go and whatever you do
Just know you’ll never not be my baby

(Chorus)
We’ll get it wrong, we’ll get it right
Whole lotta tears we’ll both have to cry
You’ll learn to run, I’ll learn to let go
Years wll go fast, nights will go slow
Lord knows the best thing that I’ll ever do
Will be growin’ up raisin’ you

(Outro)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
