Comprised of sisters Devynn Hart, Danica Hart, and their cousin Trea Swindle, Chapel Hart first performed back in 2014. Although the country music group started on the streets of New Orleans, they eventually traveled to Nashville, hoping to break into country music. In 2022, the trio debuted at the Grand Ole Opry with the song “You Can Have Him Jolene.” The song garnered over five million plays on Spotify and received high praise from legendary singer Dolly Parton. But while Chapel Hart gained recognition, the group admitted they are no longer willing to play the industry game that follows country music after years without a record deal.
