Securing her first-ever CMA Awards nominations, Warner Music Nashville powerhouse Gabby Barrett is a 2X nominee today for CMA New Artist of the Year and Single of the Year (“I Hope”).
Joining labelmate Ingrid Andress from the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville Tuesday morning (9/1), Barrett helped round out the nominations announcements on CMA’s YouTube and Facebook pages, and found out the exciting news live on stage. Watch the video below!
“Oh my goodness!!!! I’m so thankful for this morning – to be nominated not once but TWICE for New Artist and Single of the Year is overwhelming and so amazing to me, and to be included as part of the announcement was just the cherry on top,” shares Barrett. “I give honor and glory to the Lord for the blessings He continues to pour out over my life, thank you to my sweet husband, my family, my teams at Warner and Red Light, the Country music community for embracing me wholeheartedly, and of course to the most loyal fans – none of this would be possible without you all! Thank you so much, I am honored and SO EXCITED!!” – Gabby Barrett
The #1 most-streamed Country song of 2020, 2X PLATINUM hit “I Hope” (writers: Barrett, Zach Kale, Jon Nite; producers: Zach Kale, Ross Copperman) is “a gleaming example of the modern Country hit’s crossover trajectory” (Stereogum), soaring to #1 at Country radio earlier this year, reigning Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for six weeks and counting, and flying at Top 40, Hot AC and AC radio after cracking the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10 last week. The chart-dominating single has shattered long-held records across the genre, short-listing Barrett as a GRAMMY contender (FORBES, BILLBOARD) and setting her apart as “the once-in-a-half-generation country artist for whom the phrase ‘next Carrie Underwood’ can be reasonably invoked in any context” (Variety).Warner Music Nashville
