Watch Gabby Barrett perform her new single “Pick Me Up” at the 2022 CMT Music Awards. The event broadcast live on CBS Monday April 11.

The Season 16 alum utilized a hydraulic lift that lifted the country singer high in the air as she performed. 

Gabby wrote “Pick Me Up” with Ross Copperman and John Nite. The track appears on her Goldmine Deluxe album.

“I didn’t really have a song in my repertoire that was laid-back-country – a riding down the backroads while listening to George Strait-type of song,” Barrett said in a statement. “I had to pay homage to George Strait because I feel like I’m being adopted into the Texas family with my husband being from Texas.”

Gabby’s husband is fellow American Idol season 16 alum, Cade Foehner who plays guitar alongside the singer in her band.

The lyrics go: You and Jesus can fix my soul / So pick me up, get me lost way out / Down a back two-lane / Little George Strait way on up / Get me outta my head and outta this town / And tell me no matter what / You’ll be by my side / Everything gonna be alright / Make the world go black, how you do me like that / When I climb up in your truck / Just pick me up.
