Just before the release of her highly-anticipated debut album, Goldmine, Gabby Barrett will send a brand new single to country radio.

“The Good Ones” will arrive at radio on June 8. The song, which was written by Barrett alongside Emily Landis, Jim McCormick and Zach Kale, and inspired by her husband Cade Foehner, is already fan-favorite with nearly 30 million on-demand streams.

“I’m so happy that ‘The Good Ones’ is my next single at Country radio,” shares Barrett. “I wrote this song about my sweet husband – I hope it is as special to you as it is to me, and that you take a moment to appreciate the good ones in your life every time you hear it.”

Barrett released an emotional music video to accompany the track late last summer. The cinematic clip tugs at the heartstrings with a sweet, yet emotional, storyline. Click below to watch.

The release of “The Good Ones” comes on the heels of Barrett’s wildly successful debut single, “I Hope.” The song topped both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country radio airplay charts, becoming the rising superstar’s first No.1 single. Additionally, “I Hope” has raked in over 275 million streams and more than 250,000 track sales to date.

This Friday, fans can join Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner as they take over the Country Now Instagram stories for QuaranTEN Questions: Couples Edition. The pair will answer fan-submitted questions beginning at 1 pm CT.
