Gabrielle Metz is a name that is climbing in the country music scene. Born in Fort Payne, Alabama, home to the Country Music Group, Alabama. The charming 22 year old grew up in the small, southern city of Gadsden, Alabama. “Sweet Home Alabama” embodies this ‘girl next door’ perfectly.
Her love for music traces back to early childhood. In her teens, Metz was inspired to start songwriting by artists such as Kelsea Ballerini. As she began writing songs, Gabrielle wanted to learn how to play guitar and saved up her own money to purchase her very first guitar. Not only did she purchase the guitar for herself, Gabrielle also taught herself to play while continuing to write her own music and perform around Birmingham.
In 2017, before her senior year of school, Gabrielle told her parents that she wanted to move to Nashville to pursue music. Gabrielle finished high school online and moved to Nashville in February 2018. She fearlessly dove head-first into the industry. She soon found herself in co-writes all along Music Row, playing stages throughout Nashville, and making new friends.
Gabrielle released her debut single, “Checkered Flag,” in January of 2020 which was featured on Women of Country’s Top 10. Metz penned this song about chasing her dreams in ‘Music City.’ Metz has released 7 more original songs since then, “Cajun Words,” “Hear My Heart,” “Thin Ice,” “Christmas With You,” “Hey Cupid,” “Forgot To Fall In Love,” and “Masks.”
Gabrielle’s hard work and determination proves to be paying off. She has accrued many accolades since moving to Nashville: She played the Houston Rodeo in 2022. “Hear My Heart” was named to EJAZZ Radio’s Top 20. “Thin Ice” was named to Ignition Radio’s Top 20. Her first Christmas track titled ‘Christmas With You’ was nominated for Social Stars Best Christmas Song. Gabrielle has been nominated for Alabama Music Awards Best Female Country Artist in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. She was also nominated for Alabama Music Awards Best New Artist in 2018 and 2019, as well as being named to Country Sway’s 2021 Artist to Watch. She regularly performs at some of Nashville’s staple venues such as The Listening Room, Live Oak Nashville, Tin Roof, The Row Pub and Kitchen, Cabana Taps, and Alley Taps.
Gabrielle continues to write music for an upcoming project scheduled for a release in fall of 2022. In the meantime, her newest single, “Mixtape,” is available for pre-save here!
