On 'America's Got Talent,' it is frequently stated that two or three minutes may alter your life. Everyone has sung Dolly Parton's love-triangular classic 'Jolene,' but there's never been a version on Dolly's '70s song quite like 'You Can Have Him, Jolene', a new sequel sung on 'AGT' this week by family country band Chapel Hart.

The judges and Terry are each given one use of the Golden Buzzer in the preliminary round, which sends an act of their choice straight to the live shows. This season, Heidi chose singer Lily Meola, Sofia chose dancing group Mayyas, Simon chose vocalist Sara James, Howie chose singer Maddie, and Terry chose saxophonist Avery Dixon. With the coveted buzzer no longer in play, the newest batch of auditioners had to bring their A-game. Chapel Hart's energetic audition on Tuesday's episode, on the other hand, prompted all of the judges and the show's host to do something they usually reserve for the most spectacular acts.

After entering the stage, the Mississippi trio, comprised of two sisters and their cousin, stated that they aim to restore girl groups' mainstream culture dominance. They sang an original song composed in tribute to their musical hero, Dolly Parton. It was titled 'You Can Have Him, Jolene,' and it was a follow-up to Parton's 1974 hit 'Jolene.' Simon was ecstatic that Chapel Hart's original song may resurrect the "world domination" girl groups of the 1990s. The trio got the audience up and dancing. The audience was chanting "Golden Buzzer" at the end of the song. Simon, a famously harsh critic, was even pleased with their rowdy performance. "Trust me, I needed you today," he explained. "That was fantastic. I love you."

Chapel Hart then spoke about their struggles to carve up a niche in country music. "We’ve been trying to break into Nashville for the last couple of years, but it’s been kind of hard," one of the members explained. "Country music doesn’t always look like us.” Heidi described the trio's excitement as "infectious," and Sofia stated the performance "was perfect." "You guys look like you’ve been doing this for a long time, and I’m so proud of you guys," Sofia added, her eyes welling up with tears.

Simon and Heidi both remarked that if they hadn't already used their Golden Buzzers, Chapel Hart would have certainly gotten one from them. However, rules on 'AGT' can be flexible. The judges formed a huddle, and host Terry came down to join them. Following that, on Simon's count of five, they all hit the Golden Buzzer at the same time, sending Chapel Hart straight to the live shows.

Fans took to Twitter to praise the group and their original song. A fan tweeted: "@ChapelHartBand knocked my socks off on #AGT tonight. They are fantastic! And this song is terrific too!" While fans were busy tagging Dolly Parton hoping for her to see their performance, one fan tweeted praising the girls and their country skills: "Wow Chapel Hart was amazing those country girls can sang #AGT." Another fan wrote that they can't wait for their full album to drop: "Chapel Hart is amazing and these ladies are absolute stars. I need a full length album, immediately. #AGT."

Even a non-country fan took to Twitter to praise the singers. They wrote: "I don’t like country, I don’t agree with every golden buzzer, but Chapel Hart crushed it! #awesome #winnersalltheway."
