Happy Heart Day: Chapel Hart is Coming to The Great New York State Fair

You may have rooted for this trio to win America’s Got Talent (AGT) last summer… Now, you can cheer them on while watching from Chevy Court! Chapel Hart is coming to the Great New York State Fair, set to perform at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 30 at Chevy Court.

In 17 seasons of AGT, Chapel Hart was only the second group to win the golden buzzer. The country trio dazzled judges and earned millions of fans after performing “You Can Have Him Jolene,” which was recognized as “International Song of the Year” in Scotland in 2021.

Known for their three-part harmonies, sisters Danica and Devynn Hart and their cousin, Trea Swindle, have sung together since they were children. Their sophomore album, “The Girls Are Back in Town,” delivers a blend of powerful ballads and music to dance to and has been recognized as “Album of the Year” at the British County Music Awards.

“The Great New York State Fair is in the business of bringing people together, and one of the ways that people come together is through music,” said Interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey. “Chapel Hart has a natural way of inviting people to come together, sing along and dance. Just wait until you can hear the notes they can reach!”

The trio was inducted into CMT’s Next Women of Country, which has helped to catapult the careers of Kelsea Ballerini, Ashley McBride and Gabby Barrett. Internationally known artists are taking note of Chapel Hart’s rising star too, as evidenced in Darius Rucker recruiting Chapel Hart to sing on his next album!

The Chevrolet Music Series features daily performances at Chevy Court (located near Gate 1) and the Suburban Park Stage (located on the western end of the Fairgrounds, beyond the Midway). Schedules are continuously updated at pages dedicated to Suburban Park and Chevy Court on the Fair’s website.

To date, Chevrolet Music Festival concerts announced include two performances at the Suburban Park Stage:

  • Thursday, August 24, 8:00 p.m.: Theory of a Deadman
  • Tuesday, August 29, 8:00 p.m.:  Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line
