Newly crowned ACM New Female Artist of the Year Gabby Barrett teased her much-anticipated ACM Awards performance and promised fans it’s unlike anything she’s ever done before.
Barrett will take the stage for a new rendition of her latest single, “The Good Ones,” just days after the track reached the No.1 spot at country radio.
“It’s a new configuration. It’s exciting for me because I’ve never done anything like this,” the rising superstar revealed during an ACM Awards press event. “I think it will be really cool. It is kind of a piece of my song ‘The Good Ones,’ which just went number one. Yay! It’s my second number one, so we’re excited to perform it.”
The American Idol alum’s performance will take place at Nashville’s iconic The Bluebird Cafe, a place that holds a special spot in Barrett’s heart.
“I’m really excited to be able to come back here,” she explained. “It’s my second time being in there and actually, the first time I was in there was three years ago and the first time I was in there I got to met Carrie Underwood in there so now, it’s like a full-circle kind of moment, coming back and singing one of my own songs and being a part of the ACMs is just really exciting.”
The star-studded ACM Awards performance lineup also includes Kelsea Ballerini, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Chris Young, Kane Brown, Jimmie Allen, Alan Jackson, Luke Combs and more.
Co-hosted by 15-time ACM Award winner Keith Urban and New Female Artist Of The Year nominee Mickey Guyton, the star-studded event will air on Wednesday, April 18 (live 8:00-11:00 PM ET/delayed PT) on CBS Television Network and will be streamed live and on-demand on Paramount+ and CBS All Access.
