Gabby Barrett Raises the Bar With Release of Debut Album, “Goldmine”

Gabby Barrett released her debut album, Goldmine, on June 19.

The new album features a talented cast of songwriters backed by Gabby’s dynamic vocals, which radiate on songs like “Hall of Fame” and “You’re the Only Reason.”

Buoyed by No. 1 lead single, “I Hope,” which topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart in April, Goldmine features 13 songs, including current single, “The Good Ones.” Penned by Gabby, Zach Kale, Emily Landis and Jim McCormick, “The Good Ones” was inspired by Gabby’s then-boyfriend, now-husband Cade Foehner.

Gabby co-penned 12 songs on the album with a bevy of top songwriters, including Josh Osborne, Emily Weisband, Ross Copperman, Josh Kear, Jon Nite and more. The album’s title track—the only song Gabby didn’t write—was penned by Nicolle Galyon, Caitlyn Smith and Liz Rose.

“I am so excited that my first album is finally complete,” says Gabby. “I’ve been writing for this project for almost two years, pulling together who I am as an artist and working hard with my team to make this album an expression of that. To see it come together like this feels amazing and is such a huge blessing.”

Gabby became the fourth solo female artist in 14 years to score a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with her debut single, following Carly Pearce’s “Every Little Thing” (Nov. 2017), Kelsea Ballerini’s “Love Me Like You Mean It” (June 2015) and Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus, Take the Wheel” (Jan. 2006).
