Gabby Barrett is no stranger to Bangor, and the new single shouldn’t be unfamiliar to the folks of Bangor, especially for those who attended her performance with Kane Brown at the Maine Savings Amphitheater during their 'Drunk or Dreaming Tour' in June. Fans present at the event were treated to a live rendition of "Cowboy Back," offering a sneak peek before its official release this Friday. Interestingly, she performed this unreleased song for us in Bangor but didn't include "Glory Days" in her set, despite it having been out for a few weeks at that time. In fact, I regularly text a friend, who also went to the show, “I can’t believe she didn’t play Glory Days.”

It's no surprise that I'm eagerly anticipating more music from Gabby Barrett. In full transparency, she is undoubtedly my favorite country music artist at the moment. Scott Miller will never let me live down this moment on the Q106.5 Morning Show when he asked me who my favorite artist was, and I responded with, 'I would let her throw me out of a second-story window if it made her happy. Respectfully.' At least I was respectful!

Looking forward to the new music this Friday, Gabby!
