Last Friday (June 19), Gabby Barrett released her highly anticipated debut album, Goldmine.
Barrett’s country-rock influences are on full display on the 13-track project. Whether it’s on the encouraging “Footprints on the Moon,” the lovestruck “Rose Needs a Jack” or the title track, her love for both the country and rock genres is undeniable.
Elsewhere on the album, the American Idol alum shares her tender side on tracks like “Got Me,” an uplifting faith-centered song with Christian music duo Shane & Shane, and “Hall of Fame,” which highlights her Mariah Carey-esque whistle-tone notes.
“It feels like a dream that this day is here,” Barrett said in a statement. “I’ve wanted to put out an album since I was 11 years old and decided that country music was what I would aspire to do for the rest of my life, so to see it come to life today just the way I dreamed is such a huge blessing.”
Prior to this, Barrett celebrated her first number one single with “I Hope,” which climbed to the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart in April. That same month, the country singer enlisted pop superstar Charlie Puth for a vocal remake of that song, which also features on Goldmine.
