Gabby Barrett Sings Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” During ACM Awards In 2022

Gabby Barrett had the honor of co-hosting the 2022 ACM Awards. On top of hosting the ceremony, Barrett also performed…twice!

For her second performance, Barrett sang her rendition of a beloved country tune, Lee Ann Womack‘s “I Hope You Dance.” It’s a song that’s been with Barrett for her entire life, so it understandably means a lot to her.

Womack released “I Hope You Dance” in March 2000, the same month Barrett was born. It won the ACM Award for Song of the Year the following year.

Barrett is no stranger to singing “I Hope You Dance.” She famously covered the song on the 2018 season of American Idol when she was one of the top seven contestants.

She made it all the way to the finale, and ended up placing third. Barrett has since returned to Idol several times to serve as a guest performer. She was also a guest mentor during the 2022 season of the show.
