Catch a show at the Liberty Showcase Theater

Born and raised in the Mississippi mud and slow-simmered in Louisiana spice, Chapel Hart has brought a taste of the South to audiences around the world—and everyone is craving more! Made up of sisters Danica and Devynn Hart along with first cousin Trea Swindle, these three southern belles have taken 2022 by storm. Their meteoric rise came shortly after appearing on America’s Got Talent and receiving the second ever “Group Golden Buzzer” which prompted America and the rest of the world to pay attention. Deemed as “America’s Sweethearts” as they claimed a spot in the finals, Chapel Hart received praises from country music pillars such as Tanya Tucker, Darius Rucker and the one and only Dolly Parton. Shortly afterwards, the ladies made their Grand Ole Opry debut and received 4 standing ovations. Chapel has since returned to that iconic stage several times and has quickly become a mainstay in the country music industry.

This independent band has hit the ground running, contending with some of the nation’s biggest country stars and it doesn’t seem like they’re slowing down anytime soon. The accolades kept rolling in as they made a sweep at the New Orleans “Best of the Beat” Offbeat Magazine awards, winning all categories in which they were nominated. The trio took home 4 honors, including “Best Music Video,” “Best Country Artist,” “Song of the Year” and topped off the evening with “Artist of the Year.” The group has recently been named one of Music Row’s “Next Big Thing” for 2023 and CMT just announced that they are a part of their Listen UP class 2023 roster. Chapel Hart is now gearing up for their first nationwide, headlining tour that will kick off in January 2023 and includes over 60 cities so far. Chapel Hart has entertained crowds from coast to coast, and the decision is always unanimous, there’s no experience quite like the Chapel Hart experience!
