Chapel Hart To Return to The Great New York State Fair This Summer

Chapel Hart

First of Two “Heart”-Themed Concert Announcements from The Fair This Week, Expect Another Tomorrow, Valentine’s Day


On the eve of Valentine’s Day, The Fair’s latest concert announcement draws from the heart: Chapel Hart will return to Chevy Court this summer. Known for their three-part A Capella harmonies, the trio – featuring sisters Danica and Devynn Hart and their cousin, Trea Swindle – will sing at 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 29.

Chapel Hart rose to fame after being the second group in America’s Got Talent (AGT)’s history to win the “Golden Buzzer Award” in 2022, wowing judges and winning millions of fans after performing “You Can Have Him Jolene,” but the trio has sung together since they were children. In fact, the A Capella family’s group name is inspired by the place where they started singing, Hart’s Chapel, a community in Poplarville, Mississippi where the girls were raised. Their vocal arrangements show off each member’s voice, blending southern country with soulful undertones of their gospel roots.

2023 was a big year for Chapel Hart. The ladies performed at the CMT Music Awards in April, released their third studio album Glory Days in May, went on their first headlining tour over the summer, and in the fall, they made their Grand Ole Opry debut. In the midst of this journey, they made a stop at The Fair to perform in the 2023 Chevrolet Music Series.

“As fairgoers who were lucky enough to see Chapel Hart last year know and experienced, these ladies have a natural way of bringing people together. They’re talented and they’re down to earth, and they have a positive energy,” said Fair Director Sean Hennessey. “We hope fans of country and gospel music save the date of August 29, and plan to join us at Chevy Court for an evening of beautiful music.  Also, stay tuned!  Another ‘heart’-themed announcement is coming tomorrow. The Fair’s Chevrolet Music Series has enough musical variety to satisfy every preference and genre.”

The Fair starts Wednesday, August 21, and continues through Labor Day, Monday, September 2. All concerts are included in the price of admission, which will go on sale later this summer. The Great New York State Fair is the most affordable state fair in the country.

In total, The Fair’s Chevrolet Music Series will feature 39 national recording acts. There will be a daily 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. concert at Chevy Court (located near Gate 1), and a daily 8 p.m. concert at Suburban Park (located on the western end of the Fairgrounds, beyond the Midway).
