After the success of her debut single, “I Hope”, Gabby Barrett is back again with her brand new song, “The Good Ones.” The rising country star who first appeared on American Idol in 2018 worked with songwriters Emily Landis, Jim McCormick, and Zachary Kale to craft this romantic and uplifting song. The track definitely strays in meaning to her first single. Whereas “I Hope” was all about getting revenge on an evil ex, “The Good Ones” highlights Barrett’s favorite qualities about her very own ‘good one.’ The inspiration behind the adorable ‘good one’ in the song– her fiance, Cade Foehner.
Barrett shared that, “When people ask me about Cade, how he’s doing or how we’re doing, I always end up saying, “oh he’s great, he’s a keeper, he’s a good one.” That’s where the song came from – appreciating what I’ve got and what he means to me.” Barrett’s appreciation for her fiance shines through in the song, making listeners not only want a good one for themselves but also hopeful that there’s someone out there to fill that void.
With lyrics that can make anyone swoon like, “A love me like he should one / Like he wrote the book one / The kind you find when you don’t even look one / Anybody can be good once / But he’s good all the time / He’s one of the good ones,” Barrett’s love and admiration for her fiance is beyond clear. As she’s been in the studio with GRAMMY-nominated producer Ross Copperman, “The Good Ones,” teases listeners with what to expect from her debut album which is in the works.
Spending her summer playing various festivals and even getting the opportunity to headline some of her own shows, Barrett is a must-see act for any country music lover. This is just the start of what should be an extremely exciting and successful career.
