Gabby Barrett is giving her fans a reason to rejoice this holiday season with the release of a stunning new rendition of “The First Noel.”
The traditional Christmas carol serves as a standalone release from Gabby, who is having a breakout year despite the ongoing pandemic.
“I’m so happy to release my first Christmas song today,” says Gabby. “Christmas is one of my absolute favorite days of the year, and my faith is the cornerstone of my life, so being able to share both with ‘The First Noel’ is a gift. I feel so blessed to do what I do every day, and I hope that this song adds something special to your holidays.”
Gabby’s debut single, “I Hope,” is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart (streaming, sales and airplay-based) for the 13th week, which is the second-longest run by a solo female artist in the history of the chart. Gabby picked up her first CMT Music Award on Oct. 21 for Breakthrough Video of the Year. “I Hope” is nominated for Single of the Year at the upcoming CMA Awards, where Gabby is also nominated for New Artist of the Year. And, Gabby and husband Cade Foehner are expecting their first child—a baby girl.
