Multi-platinum country star Gabby Barrett performing at the Vermont State Fair on Thursday


Thursday, Aug. 17 at 6 p.m.—RUTLAND—This Thursday, multi-platinum star Gabby Barrett, who has been making waves in the country music scene, will play at the Vermont State Fair. With over 2.5 billion career streams worldwide, Barrett’s debut album, Goldmine, has garnered critical acclaim and features the Top 5, Platinum single “Pick Me Up.” Her meteoric rise can be attributed to the success of her Platinum album, which includes the record-breaking 7X Platinum hit “I Hope,” the most-streamed country song of 2020. 

Barrett’s debut single “I Hope” catapulted her to the top of the charts, ruling the Billboard Hot Country Songs for an unprecedented 27 weeks. Not only did it become the first debut single by a solo female artist to reach number one on the Country radio charts since 2017, but it also made Barrett the youngest artist with a number one debut at Country radio in over two decades. The success of “I Hope” paved the way for Barrett’s subsequent releases, including the Platinum crossover hit “I Hope (feat. Charlie Puth)” and the three-week number one single “The Good Ones,” both of which achieved 3X Platinum status.

Barrett’s talent and achievements have not gone unnoticed. In 2022, she was honored with the Rising Star Award presented by Honda at the Billboard Women in Music event. She also co-hosted the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards™, solidifying her position as a prominent figure in the industry. Barrett has amassed an impressive collection of accolades, including awards from the Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards. In 2021, she was recognized as one of the five CMT Artists of the Year and became the most-nominated female country music artist at the American Music Awards. Her album “Goldmine” won the Favorite Country Album award, and her song “The Good Ones” was named Favorite Country Song.

Barrett’s talent extends beyond her music. She was named one of the Country Radio Broadcasters’ 2022 New Faces of Country Music and was hailed as Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2020. Her breakthrough in the industry also earned her a spot on Forbes’ prestigious 30 Under 30 in Music list and Variety’s 2020 Young Hollywood Impact Report. As a testament to her versatility and stage presence, Barrett co-hosted the 12th annual holiday special, CMA Country Christmas. Her dynamic performances have also led her to tour with renowned artists like Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, and Kane Brown.

Gabby Barrett’s rise to stardom in the country music industry is nothing short of remarkable.
