Tanya Tucker Reacts To Chapel Hart’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ Performance: “You Were Fantastic… You Got A Great Vibe”

Chapel Hart caught the attention of country superstar Tanya Tucker with their performance on America’s Got Talent (AGT) during the Semi-finals on Tuesday (Aug. 16).

The country music trio, composed of sisters Danica and Devynn Hart and their cousin Trea Swindle, performed their original tune “The Girls Are Back In Town,” a song that includes a shout-out to Tucker, who they dubbed an inspiration.

“Dancing on the bar all night long to another Tanya Tucker song,” the group sings within the track’s lyrics, honoring the “Delta Dawn” singer.

Just one day after dominating the AGT stage, Tucker seen their fiery performance of the tune and took to social media to share a special video message for the trio.

“Hey Chapel Hart, I am doing a Christmas movie right now, but I saw you on America’s Got Talent and wow you were fantastic,” Tucker gushed. “I love, love your thing. You got a great vibe, it’s so different.”

“Good Luck to you!” Tucker concluded as she blew a kiss to the camera. 

Tucker also shared their performance on Instagram stories and wrote “LOVE THIS!” alongside two heart emojis.

The Mississippi-raised trio freaked out when they saw Tucker’s response and immediately praised her on social media.

“And the blessing just keep on pouring in!!” Chapel Hart collectively wrote. “It’s trailblazers like Tayna Tucker who inspire us to be bold and courageous and keep up the fight to keep making our dreams come true EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!! We love you Tanya!!!! *SCREAM*”

This isn’t the first time Chapel Hart was noticed by a country superstar and likely won’t be the last.

After Chapel Hart auditioned for AGT with an original song written in response to Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” the trio earned a golden buzzer and praise from Parton herself. 

“What a fun new take on my song, @ChapelHartBand! Carl’s birthday is today so I think I’ll hang on to him, and I’m not notifying Jolene that today is his birthday,” she wrote alongside a winking face emoji.

Chapel Hart was also recognized by Loretta Lynn, who took to social media to challenge the country trio to remake one of her classic hits.

“I love it, ladies. Now I’m wondering what you might be able to do with one of my songs! Chapel Hart #AGT #breakingthrough #girlpower #stillwomanenough,” Lynn wrote on Facebook.

The three-piece band’s AGT audition also garnered attention from Darius Rucker, among many other country artists.

When Rucker saw their audition on AGT, he praised their performance saying, “Hell yes!!! Go y’all!!”

A fan later tweeted Rucker asking, “maybe you can help @ChapelHartBand break some more barriers in Nashville.”

He responded and revealed that the group will make a special appearance on his forthcoming album. “Already put them on my next record,” he wrote.

Chapel Hart confirmed, “I mean…we weren’t TRYING to break the whole internet, but since @dariusrucker let the cat out of the bag…”

The America’s Got Talent contestants are on cloud nine and are shocked by how many country superstars have reacted to their AGT performances.

America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
