Gabby Barrett releases her debut album Goldmine on Warner Music Nashville today (June 19). The set is available to stream and download now.
“It feels like a dream that this day is here,” says Gabby. “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. Thank you to everyone who inspired, worked on and supported this album from beginning to now – I really do feel like it’s my own little ‘goldmine,’ and I am so grateful. I hope you love it as much as I do!”
The American Idol season 16 second runner up touts writing credits on 12 of 13 songs on her debut. The tracks include – her history-making No. 1 “I Hope,” which set her apart as the youngest artist with a debut single to hit the country radio charts’ summit in over two decades.
Goldmine boasts co-production by Ross Copperman and Zach Kale with additional production by Jimmy Robbins, Sam Martin and Bryan Fowler on select tracks. Additionally, Gabby co-wrote with the likes of Nashville mainstay songwriters Nicolle Gaylon, Emily Weisband, Jon Nite and Josh Osborne, as well as Copperman, Kale and Robbins.
