WARNER'S BARRETT HAS HIGH "HOPE"
4/20/20

Warner Music Nashville’s Gabby Barrett reigns atop the Mediabase Country radio airplay chart this week with her debut single “I Hope.” A career first for Barrett, she is the first solo female to take a debut single to #1 since 2017, joining an elite class of hitmakers. 

“I can’t believe this is happening," said Barrett, after being surprised by the news. "Thank you to Country radio for being so welcoming and supportive.”

Written by Barrett alongside Zachary Kale and Jon Nite, and produced by Grammy-nominated Ross Copperman and Kale, the Platinum single has over 235m on-demand streams to date, now holds a two-week streak as the most-streamed Country song in America, and has been #1 on the Shazam Country chart for nine consecutive weeks. 

On 4/17, Barrett dropped a new version of "I Hope" featuring Charlie Puth, adding a new element to the song, which is now #1 on SiriusXM’s “The Highway” Hot 30 Countdown and Radio Disney’s Country Top 50 chart.

Later this year, the Red Light-managed Barrett will release her debut album, co-produced by Copperman and Kale, which will feature songs co-written by Nashville mainstays Nicolle Galyon, Jimmy Robbins, Jon Nite and more.
