Gabby Barrett’s ‘Goldmine’ Yields Chart Riches and Record First-Week Streams

Gabby Barrett’s first LP Goldmine opens at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, starting with 20,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 25, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Most notably, the set earned 15.98 million on-demand streams for its songs in the tracking week, the largest opening streaming week ever for a debut country album by a woman.

The sum also marks the biggest opening streaming week for a debut country set in 2020 and the third-largest debut streaming frame for any country album this year, after Sam Hunt’s Southside, with 36.82 million (April 18), and Kelsea Ballerini’s Kelsea, with 16.71 million (April 4).

The 13-track Goldmine, released on Warner Music Nashville/WMN, includes 12 songs co-authored by Barrett, who finished in third place on ABC’s American Idol in 2018. First single “I Hope” led Country Airplay in April, becoming the first career-opening No. 1 by a woman since Carly Pearce’s “Every Little Thing,” which reigned in November 2017.

On the airplay-, streaming- and sales-powered Hot Country Songs chart, “I Hope” holds at its No. 2 high. It leads Country Streaming Songs for a 12th week, with 13.5 million U.S. streams (up 15%). On Country Digital Song Sales, it lifts 5-3 (7,000 sold, up 7%).

The song is also crossing over to pop radio formats, aided by a remix featuring Charlie Puth. It climbs 22-18 on Adult Contemporary, 20-19 on Adult Pop Songs and 27-25 on Pop Songs.

Meanwhile, Goldmine sophomore single “The Good Ones” pushes 59-56 on the Country Airplay chart, up 34% to 1.1 million audience impressions.
