Gabby Barrett made her debut on The Ellen Show on Monday with a show-stopping performance of her massive hit, “I Hope.”
Barrett took the stage to perform with her husband, Cade Foehner, by her side on guitar. The American Idol alum once again proved her vocal prowess with an effortless performance.
The rising superstar also shared an online-only bonus performance of her latest single, “The Good Ones,” which continues to climb the charts at country radio and made its way inside the Top 30 this week.
“I Hope” is the most-streamed country song of 2020 and is in the Top 3 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. Additionally, the sassy breakup anthem maintains the No.1 spot at Hot AC radio, Top 5 at Top 40 radio, and sits atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the 16th week.
Both tracks appear on her debut album, Goldmine, which is available now.
