The new single comes on the heels of another collaboration between Rucker and the group, who joined forces for a performance of Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About" during the season finale of America's Got Talent earlier this month.
Chapel Hart shot to fame after their Dolly Parton- inspired "You Can Have Him, Jolene" performance earned them a Golden Buzzer on their AGT debut back in July.
"Like so many people, I was blown away when I saw Chapel Hart's original response to 'Jolene,'" Rucker said in a news release. "I was recording 'Ol' Church Hymn' at the time and instantly had this vision of it becoming a duet once I heard their voices. I'm so thankful they said yes to singing on it with me, and I can't wait to see the huge career they're going to have."

Written by Rucker together with Ben Hayslip, Josh Miller, and Greylan James, the redemptive love song features the three-part harmony of Chapel Hart to "profess a born-again love."
The new collaboration will be featured on Rucker's forthcoming album—his first solo project since 2017's critically acclaimed When Was the Last Time.
