Gabby Barrett brought her massively successful debut single to the 2020 ACM Awards stage on Wednesday night, performing her powerhouse revenge anthem « I Hope » from the Ryman Auditorium stage.

The 20-year-old powerhouse country singer gave an impassioned performance from the Ryman in Nashville, bringing a vengeful edge to her vocal delivery of a song about the joy of seeing an ex suffer in a new relationship. Her husband, Cade Foehner, accompanied her on acoustic guitar as he so often does, and Barrett’s newly-announced pregnancy was showing as she performed. The couple revealed they are expecting their first child in mid-August.

It was a milestone performance in what has been an incredible journey for the rising star’s first song, which she wrote as an independent artist and debuted as a 2018 contestant on American Idol.

Since those relatively humble beginnings, Barrett has taken the song to the top spot on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase radio charts, making her the first solo female act to hit No. 1 with her debut single since Carly Pearce dropped « Every Little Thing » in 2017.

But that’s not all Barrett has accomplished over the past couple of years. She also released her first album, Goldmine, in 2020. The project’s tracklist includes « I Hope » as well as Barrett’s current single, « The Good Ones. » Her music has made serious waves over the course of the year, even finding a famous fan in pop star Charlie Puth, who added his voice for a new, dual perspective version of « I Hope » that is also included on the tracklist of Goldmine.

In addition to being a first-time performer at the ACM Awards in 2020, Barrett is also a first-time nominee. She scored a mention in the show’s New Female Artist of the Year category. That trophy ultimately went to Tenille Townes, who learned she won after show host Keith Urban surprised her with a Zoom call ahead of the ceremony.
