Gabby Barrett’s Debut Single, “I Hope,” Reaches No. 1 on Billboard Country Airplay Chart

For just the fourth time in 14 years, a solo female artist’s debut single has reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

Gabby Barrett’s debut single, “I Hope,” hit No. 1 on both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.

Gabby is now 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).

“I can’t believe this is happening . . . this is amazing,” said Gabby. “Thank you to country radio for being so welcoming and supportive. And to my husband, family, fans, label, team and everyone who has supported me along the way—this would not have been possible without you. God is good, all the time.”

Penned by Gabby, Zachary Kale and Jon Nite, “I Hope” was produced by Kale and Ross Copperman.
