The country music trio Chapel Hart was invited to the Mississippi State Capitol on Wednesday (Jan. 4) in celebration of their impressive achievements that stemmed from their time on the singing competition show, America’s Got Talent (AGT).
The Mississippi House of Representatives honored the trio with House Resolution 2. According to a recent press release, “HR 2, authored by Representative Jansen Owen (R – Poplarville), congratulates the singing group on their outstanding success and positive representation of Mississippi.”
As Mississippi natives, this recognition was perceived as an incredibly special honor that confirms the support they have from their home state. Following the event, Chapel Hart, made up of sisters Danica and Devynn Hart and first cousin Trea Swindle, took to social media to share their excitement surrounding the momentous day.
“Today we were presented with a Resolution from the state of Mississippi House of Reps & The Senate!!! We are so honored, and we hope this inspires someone today to go chase your dreams harder than ever! Because we are truly examples that DREAMS STILL COME TRUE!!! 🙌❤️ #GodisGood” they wrote on Instagram.
After the presentation, legislators, staffers, lobbyists and visitors gathered in the Capitol Rotunda to hear the country stars perform several of their songs.
The Instagram account for the Mississippi Capitol also shared a snapshot from their performance with a caption that read, “A fantastic performance by @chapelhartband here at the Mississippi State Capitol! It was very exciting having them here and singing for us. Thank y’all for being here!”
This honor comes as a result of Chapel Hart’s budding success, which received a boost from their life-changing experience on America’s Got Talent in 2022. While on the show, the trio held a “Group Golden Buzzer” performance of their original song “You Can Have Him, Jolene,” and made it as finalists. This earned them great traction in the country music community and opened the door for them to take the industry by storm.
Not only have they received words of support from several country music superstars for their standout songwriting and vocals and impressive vocals, but they also got the chance to perform on the show alongside Darius Rucker, who in turn asked them to be featured on his song, “Ol’ Church Hymn“
Not long after their time on the show came to an end, they returned to Nashville and accepted an invite to make their Grand Ole Opry debut. They were introduced by “Miss Country Soul” Jeannie Seely, and then stepped into the circle to perform a few of their original songs such as “American Pride” and “You Can Have Him Jolene.”
“The say that good things come in 3s…genie’s wishes, Chapel Hart, and @opry standing ovations!!! #TheMagicNumber,” they wrote on Twitter, sharing a glimpse into this memorable night.
Coming up next, Chapel Hart will embark on their first headlining national tour, The Glory Days.
“Roses are red🌹, Love is for sure❤️…And we are about to spread a LOT of it because… WE ARE GOING ON TOUR🥳🙌!!!! CHAPEL HART FANS GET READY!” they wrote on social media, announcing the tour.
This trek kicks off January 26, 2023, in Wichita, Kansas, and will take them from coast to coast with 60 shows and counting.
