“I really like being a mom,” Gabby told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ahead of leaving the Jason Aldean tour for maternity leave. “It’s my favorite thing that I am blessed to be able to do and it’s my No. 1 priority, so, really, anytime I’m not on the stage I’m definitely momming.”

Gabby and Cade met on American Idol

Gabby and Cade met on American Idol in 2018 where they both competed as contestants. She finished in third place, he finished in fourth. They married in 2019 and had a child Baylah May in 2021.

Soon after leaving American Idol, Gabby signed a record contract with Warner Brothers Nashville. She dropped an album Goldmine, followed by a Deluxe version. It  features her 5x Platinum single “I Hope,” plus the Platinum three-week #1 “The Good Ones,  and third single, “Footprints on the Moon.”

Reigning atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for a record-breaking 27 weeks, “I Hope” was also the first debut single by a solo female artist to top the Country radio charts since 2017 and made her the youngest artist with a #1 debut at Country radio in over two decades.

Gabby is working on her next album

Currently, the singer is working on her sophomore follow-up to Goldmine. “It’s not on the back burner at all right now,” she said of the new record. “We’ve been focusing on it a lot throughout the summer and planning for that before going on maternity leave. We should have a lot of the second album done by the end of next month (September). That’s something to look forward to.”
