Chapel Hart Grand Ole Opry

Watch Chapel Hart perform “You Can Have Him Jolene” during their debut performance as part of the Grand Ole Opry’s live broadcast on Saturday, Sept. 17th, 2022.

The America’s Got Talent finalists and group Golden Buzzer sang three songs on the Opry stage and earned three standing ovations during a tear-filled set, according to Billboard.

The Mississippi-born trio — sisters Danica and Devynn Hart and their cousin Trea Swindle — previously released the albums Out The Mud (2019) and The Girls Are Back in Town (2021).

Chapel Hart featured on Darius Rucker’s song “Ol’ Church Hymn” out on September 30

Next, the trio will be featured on a Darius Rucker single “Ol’ Church Hymn” on September 30.

“Like so many people, I was blown away when I saw Chapel Hart’s original response to ‘Jolene,’” Darius shared in a press statement. “I was recording ‘Ol’ Church Hymn’ at the time and instantly had this vision of it becoming a duet once I heard their voices. I’m so thankful they said yes to singing on it with me, and I can’t wait to see the huge career they’re going to have.”

“First of all, you get a message from Darius Rucker on social media and you think, ‘These darn spam folks,’ but then you see there’s a blue checkmark!” Trea said backstage. “He said, ‘I have this song and I think I hear you guys doing the harmonies. Y’all just take it and do Chapel Hart. I’d love to work with you.’ So we took it and Chapel Harted it right up, put down the vocals and sent it to the producer.”

“He really took a chance on us… He saw some of our stuff online and he was like ‘I love what you ladies are doing. I have an idea and I want to hear you guys on this song,’” Chapel Hart’s Devynn Hart said recently. The new duet will be featured on Darius’ forthcoming album – his first solo project since 2017’s When Was the Last Time.

The trio sang their AGT finale song and dedicated it to those who served

On the Opry broadcast the three also performed formed the patriotic number “American Pride” that they sang for the September 13 AGT finale. But the group was overcome by emotion and had vocal issues during that performance, which they acknowledged while introducing it on the Opry stage.

“We didn’t make it halfway through the song. The first notes started and we started boo-hooing on America’s Got Talent before the song even started, so tonight we want to dedicate this to the men and women who lay it all on the line day in and day out,” Danica Hart said, before the group offered a heartfelt thanks to any and all military members in the Opry House audience. The performance garnered applause and a standing ovation.

To make the night even more special, Chapel Hart were introduced by “Miss Country Soul” Jeannie Seely, who was celebrating 55 years as member of the Opry. “How special it is tonight for a 55-year member to welcome a group on their debut, which just proves our Grand Ole Opry tradition — the circle will not be broken,” Seely told the audience.

Chapel Hart will to the Opry stage on Saturday, Oct. 8th, 2022.
