Being a dreamer isn’t easy. Just ask John Lennon or Kermit the Frog. It’s a rough and rocky road you travel on, full of heartbreak and disappointment and sometimes it feels like there's no end in sight. After a while, all that hope begins to weigh down on you and you just want to throw your hands up in the air and say, ‘I GIVE UP! I’VE HAD ENOUGH! I’M JUST GOING TO GET A JOB PUTTING LIDS ON PENS AND WORK FROM MY BED.’
But being a dreamer is also a wonderful thing to be. And even though sometimes you begin to wonder if it’s all going to be worth it, you know that when you get to wherever it is you’re going, you’ll look back and realise just how special all those ups and downs and difficult times really were.
That’s what Chapel Hart’s wonderfully uplifting new single is all about. The trio - made up of sisters Danica and Devynn Hart along with first cousin Trea Swindle, who hail from Poplarville, Mississippi – are here to lift our spirits and remind us all that the journey is just as important as the destination.
“This single is so exciting for us because we are currently living in our ‘Glory Days!’”, they told us. “The beauty of it all is that there are some folks who've been where we are, there are some who are in it with us, and there are some who haven’t made it there yet, but the song ‘Glory Days’ allows us to ALL join in, sing along and celebrate them together! It’s an instant jump in the car and go for a ride anthem!!!!”
They’re not wrong there! Written by the trio along with Jim Beavers, ‘Glory Days’ is a country floor filler with a down home campfire feel that feels like the perfect tonic for a cold January. It’s a song about half empty bars and tip jars that feel a little too light come the end of the night. The kind of song that will ease you gently through those days when it feels like absolutely nothing is going your way.
The song’s brilliant new lyric video for ‘Glory Days’ is premiering exclusively on Holler below.
‘Glory Days’ comes on the heels of appearing on America’s Got Talent and receiving the second ever ‘Group Golden Buzzer from all four judges after a performance of their viral hit ‘You Can Have Him Jolene’ which led to a spot in the finals, prompting America and the rest of the world to sit up and pay attention to their undeniable talent and drive.
The trio released the powerful ‘American Pride’ and made their Grand Ole Opry debut last September, receiving four standing ovations, and duetted with Darius Rucker on ‘Ol’ Church Hymn’.
‘Glory Days’ is released on January 20th and the group’s first ever nationwide headlining tour kicks off a week later on January 26th in Wichita, Kansas, spanning coast to coast with sixty shows and counting!
