Chart-topping country star Gabby Barrett brought her massive, breakout hit “I Hope” to life during her New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash performance on Friday, December 31.

Joined by her husband, Cade Foehner, and band, the singer stunned at Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa in Nashville, Tennessee. 

Donning a sleek, sparkling red and black jacket, Barrett belted out the lyrics to her chart-topping tune, which prompted a sing-a-long with the live audience filling the popular bar.
