America’s Got Talent country trio Chapel Hart is officially heading to the Season 17 Finals, where they’ll compete against fellow country artist Drake Milligan. The group’s album is currently at the top of the Country Albums chart.
Chapel Hart Tops iTunes Country Albums Chart
On Thursday morning, Chapel Hart posted on Twitter that their album The Girls Are Back in Town had topped the Country Albums chart on iTunes. As they wrote, “It’s official, THE GIRLS ARE DEFINITELY BACK IN TOWN!!”
The group performed the album’s title song during Tuesday night’s live show. Chapel Hart also gave a shoutout to fellow finalist Drake Milligan, whose EP was right behind them on the chart Thursday. The trio wrote, “Back at #1 and in good company too!”
Chapel Hart first found out that their song was charting Tuesday night while chatting with Talent Recap. The group has had some amazing moments since they first appeared on AGT this season. Not only did Dolly Parton praise their song “You Can Have Him Jolene,” but they were invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.
The Group Will Face Drake Milligan in the Finals
On Wednesday night, AGT announced that Chapel Hart earned enough votes to go to the Season 17 Finals, along with magician Yu Hojin. They’ll join saxophonist Avery Dixon and country singer Drake Milligan, who were announced as finalists last week.
That means there will be two country acts in the finale. It could be anyone’s game, since Drake has also been charting on iTunes thanks to his original songs “Sounds Like Something I’d Do” and “Kiss Goodbye All Night.” He also has a new album called Dallas/Forth Worth out September 15.
While talking to Talent Recap, Chapel Hart’s Devynn Hart challenged Drake to “a hip-moving contest.” Bandmate Trea Swindle added that Drake should “get the six-shooter ready,” because they’re going to have a “western showdown.”
