Gabby Barrett is capping off 2020 with an impressive career milestone.

The American Idol alum’s 3X PLATINUM debut single, “I Hope,” is now the longest-leading No.1 by an unaccompanied female artist in the history of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with 20 weeks at the top of the chart.

“Wow, I’m blown away,” shares Barrett. “This year has been absolutely crazy for all of us, so to have this kind of year career-wise feels surreal. I’m so grateful for every step that my team, my fans and most importantly my family have taken to bring us here. Thank you to all of you, and to country radio, for making this possible!”

The news comes after “I Hope” was certified as the most-streamed country song of the year.

Barrett’s new single, “The Good Ones,” recently broke into the Top 25 at country radio and shows no signs of slowing down as it just surpassed 100 MILLION on-demand streams and was certified GOLD by the RIAA.

Both tracks are included on Barrett’s debut album, Goldmine, which was released earlier this year.
