Powerhouse trio CHAPEL HART – comprised of sisters Danica and Devynn Hart and first cousin Trea Swindle – are hoping to make the late country music icon Loretta Lynn proud of the video for the song she requested they write before she passed, “Welcome To Fist City.” The cinematic romp, directed by Tim Hardiman with cameos including Alexis Carter (former Miss Mississippi), Mickie James (WWE superstar), Tera Fister (Nashville singer/songwriter), and Tony Smith (former Mississippi Senator) and filmed in historic Clarksdale, MS, premiered via CMT last week and is available now.
“Just when I think we can’t have more fun bringing a story to life, I’m proven wrong yet again,” says Trea. “Getting a chance to film this long-awaited video—and in the historic Clarksdale, MS no less—has been an experience I’ll never forget. I can only hope that it puts as many smiles on other people’s faces as much as it does mine every time I watch it!”
“This music video has you hanging on from the opening scene,” says Danica. “Our hope is that people will watch our videos and ‘feel’ something! It feels like we did it again, you will laugh, you will gasp, you will say oh wow! Ultimately we hope folks have as much fun watching as we do making them! We may be ready for the big screen after this one!”
Devynn shares, “It was so much fun!! I think the part that I enjoyed the most was watching the storyline of both Fist City and Welcome to Fist City come to life. I feel that the video truly ties everything together and creates a perfect vivid picture. Tim Hardiman is a genius and it was such a pleasure to work with him.”

“Welcome To Fist City” is featured on the trio’s recently released new album Glory Days.
The trio took the world by storm on America’s Got Talent last year with their show-stopping group golden buzzer performance of the Dolly Parton inspired track, “You Can Have Him Jolene.”
Now, the ladies, deemed “America’s Sweethearts,” have released their highly anticipated album, Glory Days, out everywhere now. Chapel Hart had a hand in writing all 11 tracks including the previously released title track along with the late Loretta Lynn requested “Welcome To Fist City.”
Since America’s Got Talent, the ladies have quickly become a mainstay in the country music industry – they made their Grand Ole Opry debut in 2022, receiving FOUR standing ovations, were recently named to the Opry’s NextStage Class of 2023, performed at the CMT Music Awards, ACM Country Kickoff and have been crisscrossing the country on their 60+ date Glory Days headlining tour.
ABOUT CHAPEL HART: Born and raised in the Mississippi mud and slow-simmered in Louisiana spice, county music trio 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 took 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 “America’s Sweethearts” as they claimed a spot in the finals, Chapel Hart earned praise from country music pillars such as Tanya Tucker, Darius Rucker, the one and only Dolly Parton, and the late Loretta Lynn. Shortly after the show, the ladies made their Grand Ole Opry debut and received four standing ovations. Chapel Hart has since returned to that iconic stage several times and has quickly become a mainstay in the country music industry.
This independent band continues its momentum, contending with some of the nation’s biggest country stars and they’re not slowing down anytime soon. The accolades keep 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, including “Best Music Video,” “Best Country Artist,” “Song of the Year” and topped off the evening with “Artist of the Year.” So far in 2023, the group has been named one of Music Row’s “Next Big Thing” and are part of CMT’s Listen UP class, and the Grand Ole Opry NextStage class.
The trio, who just released their brand-new album, Glory Days, on May 19, 2023, recently performed on the CMT Music Awards on CBS and Tamron Hall. Glory Days features the anthemic title track, written by the trio along with Jim Beavers, and newly released “Welcome To Fist City,” a song inspired and requested by the late Loretta Lynn. Their first ever headlining tour, The Glory Days Tour, kicked off its initial run in January and spans coast to coast with sixty shows and counting! Chapel Hart has entertained crowds around the country, and the decision is always unanimous, there’s no experience quite like the Chapel Hart experience!
