Gabby Barrett struck gold with her debut album, Goldmine, earning the most first-week debut album streams for any country act in history.

Raking in over 16.1 million on-demand streams since its June 19 release, Goldmine hit it big in both streams and album sales with 20,000 equivalents and a Top 5 debut on the Top Country Albums chart.

“Wow!!! Oh my gosh, I feel so overwhelmed and so blessed by this first week,” Barrett shared. “Goldmine is truly a representation of who I am as an artist, person and songwriter, so to see this and feel this kind of love and support is just a dream. I am so grateful for my team at Warner Music Nashville and Red Light Management, thank you to them, my husband, family, friends, co-writers, producers and my amazing fans. This would not be possible without you all, so thank you so so much for making this a moment I will never forget.”

“I am incredibly gratified and deeply humbled that Gabby Barrett barreled past this streaming record with her debut album,” added Warner Music Nashville Chairman & CEO John Esposito. “From one Western Pennsylvanian to another, I couldn’t be one iota prouder of her. I know the entire Warner Music Nashville team looks forward to continuing to make history together.”

Goldmine features Barrett‘s breakout debut smash, “I Hope” as well as her current single, “The Good Ones,” which is quickly gaining momentum at country radio.
