Gabby Barrett has earned her second No. 1 hit with “The Good Ones,” nearly a year to the date after her debut single, “I Hope,” topped the charts in April 2020. This makes Barrett the first female artist in nearly five years to reach No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart with both her first and second singles (Kelsea Ballerini was the last woman to do so, earning No. 1 spots with her debut single, “Love Me Like You Mean It” in July 2015 ,and following it up that September with “Dibs.”)
Barrett told Billboard, “I did not think the past week could have been any more amazing, but to have the No. 1 song feels like the cherry on top. I’m so grateful for my husband, who truly is a good one and inspired this song.” Barrett’s husband is fellow artist Cade Foehner, whom she met while the two were contestants on American Idol in 2018. In January of 2021, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Baylah May.
