Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner are quickly becoming one of country music’s most beloved couples. After meeting on the set of American Idol, the pair became inseparable and got engaged just months later. After tying the knot last fall, Gabby and Cade are enjoying all the newlywed life has to offer, even while in self-quarantine.
Their normal busy schedules came to a halt this spring and now they’re spending more time together than ever. And though they’ve been together for a few years, the couple continues to learn more about each other every day.
“It’s really nice to have downtime with him,” Gabby recently shared with HollywoodLife. “It’s funny — we’ve been together for two years, but you can still find out new stuff about each other, even after a while. We’ve just been talking a lot and watching movies together.”
Although they haven’t been able to make it out to any restaurants or movie theaters due to the lockdown, Cade has found a way to keep things fresh, especially when it comes to date night.
“He’s done stuff that’s really cute,” the “I Hope” singer revealed. “Our car has a sunroof, so he put the seats down with pillows and blankets and a foam mattress, so we could lay in the back of the car. But because we have a sunroof, we put the phone on the sunroof, so you don’t have to hold the phone, but you can look through [the sunroof]. We played a speaker in the car, so you can watch a movie in the car and look up at the stars and stuff. It was really cute. That was probably the cutest one in quarantine.”
Even though they are enjoying their time together, the couple is more than ready to get back to doing what they love best – playing music.
“We’re both itching to get out and do a show,” she explained. “When you’ve done that and it’s pretty much all you know as a hobby — for me, it’s been nine years — that’s what I’m itching to get back to. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying all this down time — it’s very much needed, because as an artist, your life is constantly moving and it’s hard work an can get tiring, but it’s all worth it. We’re excited to get back on the road again, whenever that will be.”
