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.”
