Gabby Barrett was surprised Wednesday night (March 2) with three plaques honoring her meteoric success on the red carpet before the Billboard Women in Music 2022 event.
Billboard News host Chelsea Briggs gave Barrett the plaques honoring her debut album Goldmine going Platinum, along with smash chart-toppers “I Hope” achieving 6x Platinum and “The Good Ones” going double Platinum.
Barrett was the only country artist acknowledged at Billboard Women in Music 2022, held live at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California. The Warner Music Nashville artist received the Rising Star Award presented by Honda, and was introduced by Honda marketing executive Jessika Laudermilk and husband Cade Foehner before performing an acoustic version of “I Hope.”
Hosted by Ciara, other honorees at the special event included Olivia Rodrigo, Phoebe Bridgers, Doja Cat, Karol G, H.E.R., Bonnie Raitt, Saweetie, Summer Walker, and Golnar Khosrowshahi.
The honor follows Barrett’s performance as one of the Country Radio Broadcasters’ 2022 New Faces of Country Music last Friday (Feb. 25) in Nashville. The in-demand entertainer now heads to Las Vegas to co-host the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards live from Allegiant Stadium on March 7. The reigning New Female Artist of the Year is up for Female Artist of the Year and is set to perform with co-host Jimmie Allen as well.
