Gabby Barrett announced earlier this month (11/10) the title and release date for Chapter & Verse – her sophomore album, due out on February 2, 2024. She is calling it her most autobiographical work to date. The latest song release from the project is called “Growin’ Up Raising You.”

Gabby said of the song, “‘Growin’ Up Raising You’ is a compassionate song for me. I’m only 23 – I don’t have all the answers to everything, and I haven’t gotten everything figured out. I’m doing the best that I can while trying to raise other people to be the best people they can be.”

She added, “I feel so blessed to be able to have three little lives that I can help to flourish while I’m also trying to figure out life myself.”

Chapter & Verse, according to a press release, is a project where Barrett “deepened the emotional scope of her songwriting and created an up-close portrait of her experience as a wife and mother of two children, with her third baby due early next year.”

Gabby recently revealed that she co-wrote a song on her new project with Miranda Lambert.

Barrett said in a recent interview, “I wrote a song on the album with Miranda Lambert. That’s very fun. And there are so many people in the Nashville community that I haven’t gotten to write with that I did this time around. So there’s just a lot to look forward to.”

During a recent Instagram chat with fans, Gabby said of Lambert, “Miranda’s awesome. She’s just super laid back and just so chill and nice to be around and very real of a person, which is really nice to see in the industry, especially as a female, being very real and not about the drama and the jealousy and this and that. The song is more of a slower song, and it will be about Texas. That’s all I can say.”

  • "I Hope" solo and remix featuring Charlie Puth (2019)

    Barrett released this song independently following her third-place finish on season 16 of American Idol. It led to her signing a deal with Warner Music Nashville. It was released on July 29, 2019, as her debut single and the first from her debut studio album Goldmine. It went all the way to number one.

  • "Pick Me Up" (2022)

  • "Cowboy Back" (2023)

    Gabby said of this song when it was released as a single in October of 2023, “I was inspired by my wonderful husband, a Texan when I was writing this one.” She added, “‘Cowboy Back’ is all about appreciating the hard-working guys out there with strong values – those who are authentically ‘country.’”

  • "Footprints on the Moon" (2022)

    The lyrics of this emotional song say in the song’s chorus, “Everybody says that you can’t ’til you do
    Standing there, staring at the mirror in the room / Tell yourself, ‘One more day. One more day, one more shot’ / The voices in the night, in your head / Yeah, they’ll pay you to quit / He’ll tell you that it’s hard, ’cause it is / But you can do anything, anything you want to.” The music video for the song features her husband, Cade, playing guitar as she sings with a moon in the background.

  • "The Good Ones" (2020)

    This number-one song for Barrett, which she co-wrote, was inspired by her husband, Cade Foehner, and was intended to highlight positive relationships, in contrast to the type of story depicted in “I Hope.” The music video for the song has been viewed a whopping 61 million times.
