Last week, America's Got Talent viewers and judges were blown away after country music trio Chapel Hart took to the stage.

Paying tribute to the legendary Dolly Parton, the Mississippi trio consisting of sisters Danica Hart and Devynn Hart and their first cousin Trea Swindle performed an original song called 'You Can Have Him, Jolene' inspired by the 1973 hit song 'Jolene.'

And it turns out their upbeat ode and their beautiful harmonies also impressed the country music queen herself.

Taking to Twitter, Parton praised the trio writing: "What a fun new take on my song, @ChapelHartBand!

"Carl's birthday is today so I think I'll hang on to him, and I'm not notifying Jolene that today is his birthday."

Parton's husband Carl Dean was her inspiration for 'Jolene,' as she based the character of Jolene on a flirtatious redhead who tried to steal her man.

Too good!
