While “American Idol” finalists Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner may have kept their dating history a secret during the reality singing competition, their feelings for each other is obvious in their latest collaboration. The couple recently teamed up to record a powerful cover of Lady Antebellum’s 2009 crossover smash “Need You Now,” and throughout their performance it’s clear the two singers are smitten with each other.
Their four-minute rendition puts a unique spin on the Lady Antebellum hit. With Cade performing acoustic guitar, electric guitar and drums, as well as singing Charles Kelley’s part on the song, the one-man band proves his talent. Meanwhile, Gabby’s striking vocals get the emotion within the song’s lyrics across while Cade’s harmonies further complement on “Need You Now.”
While the couple is performing the song side by side, two videos shown in the clip’s lower corner have Cade on drums and electric guitar. Gabby and Cade trade off on the verses throughout the song as they alternate between Hillary Scott and Charles’ parts. Their stirring harmonies would no doubt make the country trio proud.
Cade’s gruff vocals further to help get the song’s heartbreak across while his memorable guitar parts only add to the song. Throughout their performance, Cade and Gabby can be seen sharing glances and smiles with one another and all the while their vocal talent is evident.
Gabby hinted at the collaboration last week with a sweet photo of her beau kissing her cheek. Later, she revealed the song was available to watch with “my suga Cade.”
