Local country music group Chapel Hart gears up for America’s Got Talent

The band Chapel Hart stopped by News 25 today to talk about their country music journey and their preparations for America’s Got Talent auditions.

The Poplarville natives began their musical journey in 2018, consisting of sisters Danica Hart and Devynn Hart and cousin Trea Swindle. After some brainstorming, the country music trio came up with the name Chapel Hart by taking its name from a church in their hometown. “So, we decided to take our show on the road. We started in New Orleans, did a lot of Nashville, and then branched out all over the world after that.

The group grew up listening to country music and loving the art of storytelling. Their songs embody country music with a soulful undertone of gospel. “Literally, country music was just always around us and so when we found out we all really love country music storytelling and so that’s what spoke to us the most.”

The country music journey hasn’t been easy, but these ladies have found a way to pack up their Mississippi roots and Louisiana spunk and share it with listeners not just in southern Mississippi, but around the world. . “The thing that I think we find out is when you’re your most authentic self that I think that’s what shines through.”

The band already has a huge following, tours regularly and has released two studio albums. Now the ladies are ready to touch the hearts of viewers watching America’s Got Talent. “I think we’re also preparing for AGT, I guess it’s hard trying to figure out what we want to sing, what we’re going to sing, I think we’re going to try and go for original music So, you know, I think if you can pitch your music to America and they’re like, ‘wow, we love it’ or ‘wow, we hate it’, that’s a real definition of the kind of music that you have.

The trio will appear on America’s Got Talent on July 12.e.

You can catch the trio on Saturday July 9e from 5 p.m. at the Whiskey Bar in Pass Christian.
