Get to know Gabby Barrett and her relationship with Cade Foehner: Complete story here!
Best recognized for finishing third in the sixteenth season of American Idol, Gabby Barrett is a country singer and a songwriter. Barrett was only 18th when she starred in the ABC singing show, but Gabby had ventured into her musical career even younger-much younger. Barrett was nine when she started performing for the live audience.
Born on March 5, 2000, in Munhall, Pennsylvania, Barrett is the youngest of eight offspring her parents, Blaise and Pam Barrett, have. Although she initially started with a keen interest in R&B and even became a local celebrity at a tender age, Barrett's hidden penchant for country music started unfolding as she grew up. Barrett made quite the headlines when she married fellow American Idol contestant Cade Foehner at 19.

"I didn't think he liked me at first," Gabby said in an interview. For the then-19 years Barrett, Foehner's cool-rocker appearance was enchanting enough. She shares Foehner started showing interest in her after reaching out to him first.
Foehner, 25, is a native of Shelbyville, Texas. He was eliminated during the top five on the ABC show. Cade did a brief stint at a band called Johnson's Lost Crowe and is now pursuing a solo career. We know what you think that it's not common, for two young people, especially of this generation, to get hitched.
