Gabby Barrett was set to perform with Lady A and Carly Pearce at the 2021 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (June 9) evening. Just a few days before the show, however, Barrett revealed she would no longer be able to attend.
The 21-year-old country singer shared the disappointing news with her fans on Instagram. "Still thinking back to last year’s CMT Music Awards performance and my very first award win...Such a special moment that I will never forget," she wrote. "I’m really sad to share that because of personal circumstances I won’t be able to perform with [Lady A] and [Carly Pearce] on Wednesday at the [CMT] Music Awards!"
Even though she won't be in attendance, Barrett said she'll still "be rooting for you guys and all of the incredibly talented nominees and performers!" For anyone who's bummed about her decision, she reminded them that she's "so appreciate all of your support" and promised to "see yall on the road this summer."
In addition to being asked to perform at this year's show, Barrett is nominated for Female Video Of The Year with the music video for her current single 'The Good Ones.' Last year, Barrett took home the award for Breakthrough Video of the Year for 'I Hope.'
