Chapel Hart, a country band consisting of sisters Danica and Devynn Hart, along with their cousin Trea Swindle, captivated the judges of America’s Got Talent with their unique rendition of Dolly Parton’s iconic hit, “Jolene.”

Prior to their viral audition, the Chapel Hart members expressed their admiration for Dolly Parton and revealed the inspiration behind their playful remix of her classic.

“We just loved the storyline, and we thought, from 1973 to 2022, we cannot be fighting over the same man,” explained Danica to the judges. “So we decided to tell her, ‘You can just have him, Jolene.'”

The trio from Mississippi delivered a heartfelt performance, singing, “Oh Jolene, you can have him cause he don’t mean much to me. Well, I cried so much, two rivers turned to seas / Oh Jolene, when you think that he’s in love he’ll surely leave / Like he did me / You can have him, Jolene.”

Their performance left the judges so moved that each panelist, along with host Terry Crews, hit the Golden Buzzer for the group. This marked the second time in America’s Got Talent history that a contestant received this honor.

Dolly Parton herself was thoroughly impressed by Chapel Hart’s interpretation of her ’70s classic. The music icon retweeted their audition and praised their talent on Twitter.

“What a fun new take on my song, @ChapelHartBand!” Parton wrote, playfully joking about the song’s origin and mentioning her husband, Carl Dean.

“Carl’s birthday is today, so I think I’ll hang on to him,” she wrote, concluding with a humorous note, “and I’m not notifying Jolene that today is his birthday.”
