Gabby Barrett was absolutely glowing on Tuesday morning (Sept. 1) when she appeared on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry to help reveal nominees for the 54th Annual CMA Awards.
The vocal powerhouse made her first major appearance since announcing her pregnancy and looked stunning in a gold midi dress. The “I Hope” singer showed off her growing baby bump in a photo posted to her Instagram following the nominee announcement, where she scored two CMA Awards nominations.
Barrett is nominated for New Artist of the Year as well as Single of the Year for “I Hope” and she couldn’t contain her excitement over the news.
“What a DREAM. Seriously. I can’t put words to it. Thank YOU,” she wrote.
The nominations are the cherry on top of Barrett’s incredible year, which included the release of her debut album, Goldmine. The project earned the most first-week debut album streams for any country act in history. The album includes “I Hope” as well as her current single, “The Good Ones,” which is quickly gaining momentum at country radio.
Barrett and her husband, Cade Foehner, will welcome their daughter early next year.
