Watch Gabby Barrette performs her new single “Pick Me Up” at the 2022 CMT Music Awards. The event airs live on CBS on Monday, April 11.

The Season 16 alum used a hydraulic lift that lifted the country singer high into the air while she performed.

Gabby wrote “Pick Me Up” with Ross Copperman and John Nite. The track appears on it luxury gold mine album.

“I didn’t really have a song in my repertoire that was laid back — a ride down the back roads while listening to a George Strait-type song,” Barrett said in a statement. “I had to pay tribute to George Strait because I feel like I’ve been adopted into the Texas family with my husband coming from Texas.”

Gabby’s husband is fellow American Idol Season 16 alum, Cade Foehner, who plays guitar alongside the singer in his band.

The lyrics say: You and Jesus can fix my soul / So pick me up, take me out / Go down a two way back lane / Little George Sound rises / Get me out of my head and out of this town / And say follow me no matter what / You’ll be by my side / It’ll be alright / Make the world black, how you do me like this / When I get in your truck / Just pick me up.
