Chapel Hart Honors Late Singer Loretta Lynn, Cancels Upcoming Tour Dates
America’s Got Talent Season 17 finalists Chapel Hart recently shared a video playing tribute to country singer Loretta Lynn, who passed away earlier this week. The group also posted that they had to cancel tour dates with the Indigo Girls.
Chapel Hart Pays Tribute to Loretta Lynn
On Tuesday, Chapel Hart posted a clip from a live performance in which they sing Loretta Lynn’s song “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man).” The group wrote in the caption that “words cannot describe how heartbroken we are today.”
“We were literally just working through our song for you yesterday on the road, we think you’d be stoked to know we are EXTENDING ‘Fist City,'” the caption continues, referring to another one of Lynn’s songs. “We know you had to go but don’t you worry mama, you left country music in good & capable hands!”
Lynn passed away on Tuesday at the age of 90. During her long career in country music, she released multiple gold albums and received three Grammys. The 1980 film Coal Miner’s Daughter, starring Sissy Spacek, was about her life.
The Group Cancels Indigo Girls Tour Dates
On Wednesday, Chapel Hart took to Instagram to share that they’ll be unable to join the Indigo Girls on tour this November. They explained that this was because of “scheduling issues incurred by a personal medical condition.”
“It is our hope that we will finally get to appear with them at some point as we are huge fans!” the caption continues. “We want to thank y’all for your continued support.”
Interestingly, Chapel Hart told Southern Living in August that they were previously schedule to tour with the Indigo Girls, but “one of them got sick with COVID.” This freed up their schedules to do America’s Got Talent.
Fans left the group well wishes in the comments, with one writing, “Love your group and the Indigo Girls, but please take care of yourselves first.”
