Gabby Barrett joins King Calaway for House Band cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”

ABC/Image Group LAGabby Barrett takes a turn in the spotlight on the latest installment of King Calaway’s Nashville’s House Band Series, a running list of virtual performances from the rising country group and some of their musical friends.

This time around, Gabby and the gang try their hand at “Jolene,” which was a hit single for Dolly Parton after she first released it in 1973. 

“It was only a matter of time till we threw in some Dolly P!!!!” tweeted King Calaway when they shared the song. “[Gabby Barrett] is the voice you didn’t know you needed this morning.”

In fact, Gabby’s voice is becoming a more frequent presence in country music. She notched her first-ever chart-topping hit this spring with her debut single, “I Hope.” Following that milestone, she kept the ball rolling, releasing “The Good Ones” as her next single in early June. In its first week, the track became the most-added single at country radio. 

Additionally, the singer is teasing a new track called “Footprints on the Moon” for release on Friday. Gabby’s debut album, Goldmine, is scheduled for release on June 19.

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
