MULTI-PLATINUM star Gabby Barrett marks the sought-after release of Chapter & Verse – the boldly ambitious and beautifully-realized album. A major leap forward for the 23-year-old singer-songwriter, Barrett’s sophomore LP arrives as an autobiographical tour-de-force that more than fulfills the immense promise of her PLATINUM-certified, history-making, hit-stacked debut Goldmine. Available everywhere, listen here.

In an extraordinary evolution of Goldmine – a 2020 release that came to life during lockdown and delivered smash singles like the 7X PLATINUM #1 “I Hope” – Barrett stepped into the studio for the very first time in the making of Chapter & Verse and co-produced the full album alongside GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter-producer Ross Copperman. As she claimed a whole new level of creative control, Barrett co-wrote nine of the 14 songs, and ultimately dreamed up a high-concept yet emotionally candid body of work, brightening every moment with her soul-stirring vocal. With its title nodding to the chapters and verses within each book of the Bible, the result is a deeply moving and exquisitely detailed portrait of her experience as a wife, mother, and woman of faith.

Showing her incredible range as a songwriter and vocalist, Chapter & Verse encompasses everything from feel-good anthems to tearful piano ballads, and full-hearted love songs exploring the more nuanced and complex dimensions of long-lasting romance. Along with the previously released songs “Cowboy Back,” “Growin’ Up Raising You,” and “You’re My Texas,” the album includes Barrett’s current single “Glory Days” – a heart-thumping ode to living in the moment and appreciating the lovely simplicity of everyday life.

Opening on “The Chapter” (a soaring and soulful anthem that muses on the ups-and-downs of early adulthood), Chapter & Verse closes out with “The Verse: Doxology (Amen)” (a breathtaking a cappella rendition of one of Barrett’s most cherished hymns, featuring singer-songwriter Phil Wickham). All throughout Chapter & Verse, Barrett infuses her songs with equal parts honesty, grace, and warmhearted perspective — and, in turn, fully affirms her status as one of the most formidable young talents in Country music today.
