♥ Congratulations to Gabby on her ACM New Female Artist of the Year Win! ♥
Gabby Barrett’s Academy of Country Music Awards New Female Artist of the Year win comes on the heels of her second No. 1 chart-topping country single, “The Good Ones.” In addition to scoring previous CMA, CMT and American Music Award nods, she has been named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2020, featured as an Amazon Music Breakthrough Artist, included in Variety’s 2020 Young Hollywood Impact Report and listed as one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Music. Her meteoric 5x Platinum debut “I Hope” was the most-streamed Country song of 2020, winning CMT’s 2020 Breakthrough Video of the Year award, while cracking the Top 3 on Billboard’s all genre Hot 100 chart. Reigning atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for a record-breaking 27 weeks, “I Hope” was also the first debut single by a solo female artist to top the Country radio charts since 2017 and made her the youngest artist with a #1 debut at Country radio in over two decades. Adding to over 1 billion+ global streams, her top-streaming LP GOLDMINE includes the 4-week Hot AC No. 1 crossover version of “I Hope” feat. Charlie Puth.
Said Barrett upon receiving the award: “This feels like a dream! God is so good, and I’m really blessed to be a part of this Country music community. A million thank you’s to my husband, my family, my fans, my team for all of your support and to the ACMs for this incredible honor.”
