Gabby Barrett has broken Billboard’s Hot Country Songs record this year as her debut single, “I Hope,” is now the longest-leading Number One hit by an unaccompanied female artist in the history of the chart with a 20-week reign.
Gabby said, “Wow, I’m blown away. This year has been absolutely crazy for all of us, so to have this kind of year career-wise feels surreal. I’m so grateful for every step that my team, my fans and most importantly my family have taken to bring us here. Thank you to all of you, and to Country radio, for making this possible!”
Gabby tells us that 2020 was a blessing for her, not only because of the success of “I Hope,” but also because she was able to take the time to absorb and appreciate all of her feats.
Gabby was the only Country artist included in Rolling Stone’s 10 Biggest Breakthrough Artists of 2020, and listed as one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Music.
“I Hope” was the most-streamed Country song of the year, with the Hot AC chart-topping version featuring Charlie Puth named to Rolling Stone’s 10 Best Country Collaborations of 2020 and Best Pop Collaborations of 2020.
