Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” Reigns Atop Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart for 9th Week

Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart (streaming, sales and airplay-based) for the ninth week.

Penned by Gabby, Zachary Kale and Jon Nite, “I Hope” is featured on Gabby’s 2020 debut album, Goldmine.

After topping the Billboard Country Airplay chart in April, “I Hope” reached the top of the Hot Country Songs chart in its 64th week, which is the longest trek to No. 1 in the chart’s 76-year history. The tune unseated Maren Morris’ “The Bones,” which had enjoyed a 19-week reign at No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart.

On Aug. 16, Gabby, 20, and husband Cade Foehner, 24, announced they are expecting their first child—a baby girl.

“I Hope” is nominated for Single of the Year at the upcoming CMA Awards. Gabby is also nominated for New Artist of the Year.
