America’s Got Talent: Chapel Hart receives group Golden Buzzer after original ode to Dolly Parton

Country music singing trio Chapel Hart received a rare group Golden Buzzer on Tuesday’s episode of America’s Got Talent after their original ode to Dolly Parton.

‘And we figured, though, from 1973 to 2022, we could not still be fighting over the same man,’ Danica said about their song.

‘So we just decided to tell her, ”You can just have him, Jolene,”,’ she added.
