But before fans could get excited, the 25-year-old revealed she was over the moon because she was reunited with her close friend, Mattie Brandt, who she affectionately referred to as "my baby". Mattie turned up to show her support for Gracie ahead of her Broadway Sings Taylor Swift performance at NYC's Sony Hall.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Gracie posted a sweet, smiling photo of Mattie alongside the caption: "My baby is here!!!! @sweaterpuppies187." Mattie returned the favor and took to her own Instagram Stories to share a stunning photo of Gracie, which she captioned: "I made it to my baby @graciemcgra."
Gracie and Mattie are so close in fact, that she also often refers to her as her girlfriend, a label Mattie isn't necessarily fond of.
While marking Mattie's birthday on Tuesday, Gracie revealed that she has complained that many people now believe the two are more than just friends.

In a sweet picture of the two, Gracie quoted her friend saying: "How are we supposed to find boyfriends if everyone thinks we're dating?"
Gracie might be struggling to find a partner due to her hectic schedule, which has kept her busy in recent weeks as she continues her quest to become a Broadway star after moving to New York City from Nashville last year.
Gracie has won a legion of fans thanks to her spellbinding voice, and she often shares videos of her singing on social media.
