Gabby Barrett is now reaching a whole other level of stardom by making history at the very beginning of what’s expected to be a long career.

Her song “I Hope” has currently spent more weeks at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Chart than any other song by a solo female artist ever has.

“Wow, I’m blown away,” Gabby reflects. “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.”

“I Hope” was the first song Barrett released following her time on the 16th season of “American Idol.” She joins the likes of other famous singers who have been discovered on the show, including Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. Although she didn’t win, her performances launched her into fame. “I Hope” immediately became a sensation.
