Gabby Barrett (R) and Cade Foehner attend the 2019 CMT Music Awards at the Bridgestone Arena on June 5, 2019 in Nashville.

Gabby Barrett brought out her husband Cade Foehner for an intimate Billboard Live At-Home performance Wednesday (Aug. 5) to raise money for MusiCares.

Foehner played an instrumental part during the couple's set, when he sang alongside Barrett while playing the acoustic guitar, but he also played his part as her muse for her radio sensation "The Good Ones."

"This song was written about this man beside me," the 20-year-old country star said. "I was just thinking back to when him and I were dating during American Idol at the time. And some of my family members would just ask me, be like, 'Oh, how's your boyfriend doing?' and I'd be like, 'Oh, he's good. He's a good one, he's a keeper.'... Not every single person is bad, not all guys are bad, and I found my good one."

The two officially tied the knot on Oct. 5, 2019 after meeting and eventually dating during the season 16 of American Idol back in 2018.

A fan later asked Barrett during the Billboard Live her favorite thing about Foehner, but she couldn't pinpoint just one thing she loved about him.

"He's a great leader for our family, he's solid in Christian values and that's something that I absolutely need," she responded. "He has beautiful eyes, and his sense of humor is very funny when you get to know him. If you don't really know him, then he's shy, but if you do, he's really funny."
